FIRST PERIOD

19:22: Rutckyj with a glorious chance early. Sowinski says no.

18:19: Admirals carrying the play so far. Couple of good chances already.

14:50: This looks like it could be a case of running into a hot goalie. Admirals dominating, nothing to show for it yet. Gotta keep the pressure on.

13:49: Prymack catches Meyskens with his head down. Thunderous hit.

12:59:Beattie goes off for tripping and we’ll be short handed for two or less.

11:47: Kenny comes out to play the puck and has a bit of a mix up. Scary moment. Puck stays out though.

11:20: Eady gets a breakaway right off the draw. Tries a nice move but Sowinski keeps it out.

9:49: Mike Brown goes off for boarding and we’ll get our first PP of the game. It’s been real good this season.

9:24: 1-0 Admirals
A point shot from Zach Brown finds its way into the back of the net. I don’t think it was tipped. Great shot. Told you the power play has been good!

6:27: Morand sends White for a ride. That’s a few good hits from the good guys so far.

5:49: Kenny makes a great save on a tipped point shot. Not an easy save.

4:54: Kindarachuk goes off for cross-checking and our PP will get another chance.

3:56: 2-0 Admirals
Copeland gives the Admirals a two-goal lead after some great puck movement on the power play. This PP is just something else right now.

0:26: Kenny flashes the leather and that draws a cheer from the crowd. What a save that was. Jaw-dropping style.

0:03: Sapone goes off for interference. Here we go again.

 

SECOND PERIOD

19:23: Morand goes off for high-sticking and the power play is negated quickly.

18:05: Four-on-four seems to favour our guys as we are getting quite a few chances.

16:47: Kenny makes a good side-to-side to stop to keep the two-goal lead.

14:03: A great hustle play by Jones as he gets back and break up the partial break.

13:37: 3-0 Admirals
Brooks wires a shot past Sowinski. This kid is on fire right now. What a cannon.

13:04: Another power play for the good guys. This time Morey goes off.

11:20: Wallaceburg gets a shorthanded break and Kenny comes up huge.

9:32: Just a sick passing play by the Beattie-Matoski-Copeland line. Couldn’t finish it off though.

6:14: 4-0 Admirals
Eady finishes off a Beattie pass. Beattie to Eady. Ha. Admirals pouring it on now. The boys look real good tonight

4:42: Sobocan and Morey each go off for roughing. We’ll stay five-on-five.

3:48: After drilling a Wallaceburg player, Prymack is being escorted off the ice. He’s gone for checking-from-behind.

3:23: 5-0 Admirals
Copeland scores his second of the night. It’s a shorthanded tally and this is officially a blowout.

0:40: 6-0 Admirals
A miscommunication between Sowinski and his defenceman and Beattie capitalizes. Another shorthanded goal.

 

THIRD PERIOD

20:00: Wesley Hughson now in goal for the Lakers.

18:04: Nice play by Gagnon to retrieve the puck down low and get it to Brooks. Hughson is forced to make a good save.

14:23: Rutckyj feeds Eady on a two-on-one but the pass hops over Eady’s stick. What a chance.

12:21: The Admirals are carrying the play here in the third. A couple of great scoring chances on that shift.

12:02: Another chance for Copeland. What a game he’s had tonight.

10:45: Brown and Gruszka get off-setting minors. Starting to get a little chippy out there… My bad, Brown with the extra two. We’re shorthanded.

9:24: Matoski gets a shorthanded breakaway but can’t beat Hughson.

It’s just sick how good Sobocan is at stripping players of the puck. Unbelievably good.

6:36: What a shift for Rutckyj. A couple good takeaways and an absolute bomb that JUST missed the net. And draws a penalty as well.

4:49: 7-0 Admirals
A great tip by Morand out front. Nice to see the captain get his first of the season. It comes on the power play once again.

3:49: 8-0 Admirals
Leeming gets his first of the season in just his second game. Congrats to him!

0:34: 9-0 Admirals
Copeland finishes off the hat trick! What a game for him!

What a win for the boys! Copeland gets the hat trick, Leeming gets his first junior goal and Kenny gets his first career shutout. It’s been a fun one, thanks for reading.
