Pre-season gets underway. Tommies 3 - Panthers 5.

The 2008-09 hockey season has started, unfortunately for the Tommies it got off on the wrong side of a 5 to 3 game. The Tommies were down 3 to 0 after 1 period and 4 to zip after 2. The team got rolling in the third when rookie Jason Rinzler scored at 1:36 followed quickly by Jeremy Turgeon at 2:09. Jason Cassidy slimmed the margin again around the 10 minute mark but that would be it for the scoring on this night.

Guillaume Miszczak got the start in net and played the first 30 minutes before Ben McFarlane finished up in the final 30. Shots on goal were 11 to 5 in the first, 9 to 9 in the second and 7 to 8 in the third for a total of 27 to 22 for UPEI. Bryan Main (see separate story below) played for the Tommies while Brian Soso, Wes Welcher, and Matt Davis were healthy scratches. STU will continue their pre-season in Woodstock on Wednesday night versus the $quirrels.
