Pre-Season: Sweet home LBR.

It was home sweet home for the Tommies tonight at the LBR as they cruised past the UPEI Panthers 5 to 4. This was STU's first win against AUS competition this pre-season as the Tommies improved to 3 wins and 4 losses so far. In this evening's game the Tommies were first on the board at 12:14 of the first as senior Justin Roy got it rolling from rookies Estey and Price. PEI tied it over a minute later on a Tomas Stryncl goal but Jason Rinzler regained the lead for STU at 14:37 from Mitch Price. With 14 seconds left in the period and 2 seconds after a penalty to Keith Wynn had expired, Justin Donati tied it with a laser beam past Matt Davis.

St. Thomas scored the only goal of the second period off the stick of Brad Gallant with assists to Max Chamberland and Wes Welcher. At 4:33 of the third the Panthers replied when former Florida Panther draft pick Bret Nasby potted one. Eight minutes later the Tommies took the lead again when Jeremy Turgeon roofed one past a stunned Wayne Savage with the helpers going to Bryan Main and Brian Soso. Brad Gallant, with his second of the game, from Rinzler and Welcher scored an important insurance goal on the PP at 15:47. It proved to be the winner as Rick Steadman got a lucky bounce off Matt Davis to score 33 seconds later and make it close once again. That would be it on this night as Matt Davis got the complete game win facing 32 pucks while the duo of Wayne Savage and Tim MacPhee faced 29.
