Black Knights ride hot power play to thumping of Punishers
After being held scoreless for the first period, the Black Knights manufactured a pair of second period goals to seize a 2-0 lead before rattling off a pair by the third to shutout the Punishers. K.Duplin scored twice while J.Gagne collected three helpers. It was a game that everything went right for one team and wrong for the other. The Punishers had their fair share of chances only to keep getting denied by F.Gagnon. The only time they felt that the game was slipping away was by the nine minute mark of the third period where S.Lajeunesse widened the gap by three. With only one game left in the regular season, the Black Knights will attempt to capture first place by needing a single point versus the All Blacks.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Fred Gagnon of the Black Knights. The net minder was sharp and ready to play on Monday night stopping enough quality chances to capture a well earned shutout.
