2S, no. 5; newsletter by h.s.)
Even with an abbreviated line-up due to our 11:00pm gametime (only two subs), we played an aggressive game. Ralz scored first on a beautiful feed from Dan to put us up 1-0.
That score held deep into the 2nd period when, in the final seconds of a powerplay, Roger headed straight into the enemy zone and shot and then rebounded his own shot in. We carried the 2-0 into second break.
The game turned a bit chippy in the 3rd but Russ quickly ended that when he went for the puck in such a way that the one guy on the Sabres paid dearly, and was a little gun-shy afterwards (Russ did get a penalty on that play though!). We killed off three powerplays on the night and a 6-man attack (when they pulled their goalie) to get our first win of the Sunday season.
1) TIM HAND
