The boys took their talents and positive attitude into the Old Centennial Arena to battle the Halifax Hawks, looking to avenge their last meeting and get back on track heading into playoffs!
It was The French Phenom who got things underway, crashing the net hard and getting rewarded with a wide open net rebound to put the boys on the board! After Elsy got hooked like a fish on a breakaway with no call, he didn’t let it faze him, battling in the corner which found J Jets in the “Holy F I’m wide open” spot too to bury home a loose puck in front of the net!! Who else but the Frenchman, burying home his second of the game in front of the net to extend the lead!!
The second period got underway with a bang as Hizzy listens to the old hockey saying: “Good things happen when you put the puck on net” firing one from Center ice that found its way in the back of the net!! After an intimidating Diller forecheck that forced the opposing D-Man to turn it over, it was none other than the Big Scal to make no mistake in tight!! Peh got his name on the scoreboard once again, with a new and improved tape job, ripping one under the bar on a 2 on 1, and with seconds left on the clock, the power play got to work, and The Veteran D-Man Jack MacMillan made no mistake off a beautiful dish from jets that put the boys up 7-1!! (One rookie D-man owes Coker an apology for that shutout killer… what a bad bounce!!)
Huge shoutout tonight to the boys for realizing their teammate was on a hat trick watch, that saw Captain Will Elliott give up a breakaway and force feed a pass on a 2 on 1 to his linemate to try and get him that Hatty. Even a rookie Franky purposely took a quick 20 second shift to get his teammate back out on the ice to try and get his 3rd of the night but the post had other plans!! That’s what being a TEAM is all about, sacrificing your own success for the success of your TEAM!! It’s the difference between regular season records and champions!!! You love to see it!!
We win and lose with respect always, great classy win tonight and big game Saturday night against Cole Harbour!!
The boys from Sackville rolled into Spryfield with 1st place on their minds and they made no mistake tonight!!
Things got underway with a bang as the new Line of Destruction got to work in the offensive end that saw Scally burying one home in the slot from a sweet dish from Elliot to put the boys up 1-0! After a well deserved goal from Chebucto it was none other than the goal machine himself, Big Scally, who took the puck down the wing and scored with one of the nicest far side post and in buzzer beater shots you will ever see!! Jaw dropping stuff!!
It didn’t take long for Diller to bury one, as he was planted in the patented, "Holy F I'm Wide Open" zone burying home the puck into a wide open net!! If you looked away for a second, I feel bad for you, as The Pilot, J Jets Jackman put a defender in the blender with an in and out move straight off the TSN top 10, and ripping home a rocket to the top right to put the boys up 3!! It gives you goosebumps on the bench watching a team get that fired up off a goal… you love to see it!!!
The 3rd period got underway just as the boys left the second, that saw The French Phenom get taken down WWE style in the neutral zone with no call but while everyone looked at the ref, it was the young Frank the Tank, picking up the puck and ripping home a bullet from the slot under the goalies blocker, extending his point streak and putting the boys up big!
After a couple goals against, with momentum starting to shift, it was the new Kid Line that took their opportunity, that saw Tommer fly down the wing, dish off another beauty to Peh on the 2 on 1, and you know he’s making no mistake in tight to put the game away and secure the win, and first place for the boys!!
Huge shoutout to the Line of Destruction, Scally, Elsy, and Dolla Dill, for putting on a dominating performance that set the tone all game long for their teammates!!!
Huge shoutout to the D-Core tonight, laying the body, protecting their goalie, and playing a tough style of hockey tonight, making the right plays and trusting eachother!!
The best game we’ve played so far this year and it’s not even close, with playoffs right around the corner, this is exactly the game we needed!!
