4W, no. 4; newsletter by h.s.)
With our undefeated streak on the line, we faced our old rivals the Jags "B" (or is that A/B?). We survived a couple of odd-man rushes and then countered with a score from an offensive-zone face-off by Scott Miller (assist from Glen Chambers).
That 1-0 score held for the remainder of the 1st and then BB gave us a 2-goal lead when he shot quickly through traffic (assist to Scott). Throughout the 2nd and into the 3rd our play was great forwards were covering the points and using the body (kudos to Brian and Glen) and we were working to flush the puck from behind their net and feed our forwards (nice hustle by Allen all night long). Chris shadowed Mezzo (their best guy) and just made his life a misery and kept him largely ineffectual.
In the 3rd, Russ broke up ice, but when he lost the puck, Scott Miller was there to slap a low, fast shot for his second goal of the night to give us a 3-0 lead. With just under 10 minutes remaining, the Jags finally got on the board on a floater from the point that made it through upper stickside. Although the Jags were hoping to swing the momentum with that goal, we never gave them the chance and continued to out-hustle them as the minutes ticked off. With about a minute remaining, the Jags pulled their goalie and Scott narrowly missed his hat-trick into the empty net. It took Rob's full-length shot with time expiring to give us back our 3 goal lead.
1) SCOTT MILLER
For his 3-point night.
2) CHRIS GOIONE
For shutting down Mezzo some much so, that he finally threw his stick up in the air in frustration.
3) ROB ARMSWOOD
An ironman on D, he broke up a ton of Jag rushes and was a 1-man show when his defensive partner would press forward.
