1S, no. 8; newsletter by h.s.)
With only six men in the lineup for our first playoff game (facing a team with a full five-man bench), it looked a little grim at the dropping of the first puck. Everyone hustled though, and we swarmed the net until we had stockpiled a 4-0 lead at the end of the 1st period.
We added three more goals in a row during the 2nd to go up 7-0 before the Rage recovered a stick-check from me at the point and slapped one top shelf.
We changed up our strategy a bit in the 3rd so as not to run the score up and the Rage again capitalized with a low shot through a screen. From there we went back to our original gameplan, but our only other goal coming at the :01 second remaining mark in the 3rd was not counted on the official score sheet (the refs said it was an offsides. Sorry Glen)
1) RUSS NICOLOSI
For returning to old form, with a hattrick.
2) ROGER WEISS
For two goals and steadfast two-way play.
3) TIM HAND
For getting the goal-scoring started and his constant pressure.
