(6)Capitals vs Bramabulls(0)
M-A Morin overwhelms Bulls with four goals
The Capitals keep rolling through the division thanks to a four goal performance by M-A Morin and a 25 save shutout out-from C.Fortin. Both sides remained scoreless for just over half the game before C.St-Hilaire got the Capitals on board. It was shortly after that M-A Morin started to cause fits for the Bramabulls. In only one minute, Morin strung together two goals to help close out a dominant second period. The problem for the Bramabulls didn't stop there despite having one entire frame to bounce back. Clearly, M-A Morin wasn't done yet has he added two more tallies for his fourth of the match. The Bramabulls knew going in how difficult the challenge would be, and even though they lost the game, this wasn't what they were expecting. The good news was that they had a second game looming giving them enough time to bounce back-from a disappointing performance.
(3)Punishers vs The Blast(0)
A.Bitsakis stops all 27 shots to earn a shutout for the Punishers
Surely the Punishers cant say enough about the play of A.Bitsakis. Its one thing when you have scoring power up front along with a solid defence, but when you add the final piece between the net, you became that much harder to beat. The Blast realised it in this contest unable to solve Bitsakis at any moment. The goaltender was never once phased stopping everything his way which only built confidence for the players in front of him. A.Laramee scored an early goal for the Punishers and eventually added his second by the four minute mark of the third period. Then, just to reassure the win, P.Karvouriaris capped it off late on a power play marker.
(1)AREZ vs Bramabulls(3)
Third period goals end dry spell for the Bramabulls
The Bramabulls must have been wondering if they were ever going to score in a double header night. After going scoreless versus the Capitals only an hour earlier, the same problem seemed to carry over, at least for two entire periods. Up until that point, P.Haber had scored for AREZ with the games lone marker. Sometimes it takes only one tally to break the ice and end a frustrating cycle offensively. And surely enough, that goal eventually came early in the third period for the Bramabulls. A.Moffa finally figured out C.Malkoun and the Bramabulls had something to celebrate about. Still, the mission wasn't accomplished as both sides were fighting for the win. Unfortunately for the AREZ, a tripping penalty enabled C.Palermo to pull the Bramabulls in front for the first time all night. By that point, over eight minutes was remaining for a response-from the AREZ. But with the Bramabulls committed to bear down and defend while getting exceptional goaltending-from G.Follano, that goal never came.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to M-A Morin of the Capitals. Anytime a player scores four times in a game, its because he has nose for the net. M-A Morin showed his ability once more striking four consecutive times against a team that prides themselves on good defense.
