Live Blog: STU @ UdeM 5-3 Moncton win

Considering the Tommies' awful start to the 2nd half and their slim-to-none playoff hopes rapidly evaporating, it's good to see they haven't packed it in for the season. Overall, a good effort tonight and an exciting game. Devan Praught tied the game on the powerplay - the 3rd goal on the night with the man advantage. Unfortunately, Jean-Philippe Paquet's shorthanded shot from center fooled Ben MacFarlane to make it 4-3, then Mathieu Berube scored the empty netter in the dying seconds for a 5-3 final. STU hosts UPEI tomorrow at 3pm at the LBR, with the game on CKTP.Thanks again for reading, and listening.

Live Blog: STU @ UdeM 2nd Intermission

Another pretty good period for the Tommies starting with a beautiful give and go power play goal by Devan Praught from Jason Cassidy. Moncton stepped it up after falling behind and Nicolas Laplante took advantage of a deflected Jean-Phillippe Paquet point shot to tie it up. The Tommies had some quality scoring chances in the 2nd, but couldn't capitalize. A one-timer from Ian Girard, that he fanned on a bit threw off MacFarlane's timing as he came across the crease and it got by him for Moncton's 3rd goal. Shots 12-10 for UdeM, 24-16 overall. 3-2 Moncton after 2.

Live Blog: STU @ UdeM 1st Intermission

That's the best period of hockey from the Tommies since the 2nd half began. Not to say that STU didn't have its issues in the defensive zone, but they had a few quality scoring chances, including one that Maxime Chamberland inexplicably rang off the goal post, but the Tommies made up for it not long after with Wes Welcher's goal, a beauty setup from Andricopoulos and Gallant. 1-1 after 1.

Live Blog: STU @ UdeM Warmups

The teams are on the ice for warmups at the J. Louis Levesque Arena. After coming in in relief on Wednesday, Ben MacFarlane (0-4, 4.03, .895) gets the start for the Tommies. Pier-Alexandre Marion (2-1, 2.48, .903) gets the nod for the Blue Eagles. Kevin Lachance gets a night off after beating UNB last night and breaking Moncton's 6 game losing streak. Matt Foster, Mitch Price and Guillaume Misczak are scratches for STU. The Tommies' struggles have already been well documented. They'll certainly be happy for some offense tonight. It's been nearly 8 periods since STU's last goal, from Max Chamberland at 0:23 of the 2nd period of last Friday's 10-2 loss to Saint Mary's.
