Best Game In The Past 4 Season Revealed!!

Here is the best game in the past 4 years for the Tommies.

#1- STU Tommies vs. UNB Varsity Reds, February 10th, 2006 (STU Wins 10-3)

Its time for the annual Lou Chabot game and the Tommies were looking for revenge yet again after losing the Mark Jeffery Memorial Game a few weeks before this game. The laughter at this game was started in the pre game warm up. It was Tommies superstition that on the half moon shots on the goalie that Nick Theriault always got the first shot, scored, then skated as fast as he could to the red line. Well, it was also the superstition of Craig Mahon of UNB to stretch by the red line on the other side. Anyways, Theriault would skate super fast and proceeded to snow Mahon when he stopped. Mahon always used to be the last off the ice as players like to be last of the ice for superstition purposes. The Tommies knew this and waited till Mahon came off the ice then skated hard to the Zamboni entrance to be last off. Then Mahon came back on the ice, skated around then went off the ice to a chorus of boos.

The first period was a tight period with STU holding the advantage 2-1. But you could tell the Tommies would dominate this game heading into the 3rd period with a 4-1 lead. Then the Tommies exploded with 6 3rd period goals. UNB goalie Reg Bourcier was obviously upset by his performance and Saint Nick decided to say something to him coming off the ice, only to take a blocker shot in the head by Bourcier, knowing he was dominated by the Tommies. Matty Seymour had a great performance with a goal and four assists, Saint Nick had 2 goals and Miguel Delilse had 2 goals and an assist. Brent Varty had a really strong game and got a huge cheer when probably had his only body check of the season when he decked Mahon to the ice. This was the top game in my opinion because the Tommies saved their greatest game of the 2005-2006 season in the Lou Chabot game, DESTROYING the Squirrels.

Well, that's it for me. It was a pleasure for me to be able to get my top 10 games out to the Tommies Army. I formally announce my retirement from the team as their video guy. Its been a ride and its kind of a good thing that my first game was a dramatic shootout win to last night with the Avery Bank Shot by Banfield to end the season. I want to thank Mike Eagles and Peter Murphy for letting me be able to work with them and learn more about the game of hockey than I did when I was assistant coaching hockey with my dad back in the day. Its been quite a ride for sure. Tommies Pride.


  1. That was a great game. Wow three years ago.Wow Brent Varty,wonder where he is now.I think and correct me if I am wrong he wore 91. OilSlick

  2. Varty is playing with U of Ontario IT with Richard Power as a defensemen in his last year.

  3. I guess that says something about UNB if your greatest game was to beat them.
    Oh well... maybe next year.

  4. lol, always with the UNB comments. It was close with that game and #2. I'm sure UNB's greatest game (and from what i saw, it was with Freisen's late goal last playoffs) is agaisnt STU. But there is no denying that we PUMPED UNB that night.

  5. why did stu fans like nick theriault, he would do something dirty then run to the bench, hes in the senior league now losing every fight and acting like hes tough. what a joke.

  6. Probably for the same reason Reds fans liked Mahon - someone you want on your team but hate to play against.

  7. I don't think that any UNB fan would say that the most memorable game UNB ever played was against STU... maybe the semi-final game against Alberta in 2004 or the 2007 National Championship final, to name a few. I will admit, however, there have been some great games against STU over the years as well.

  8. i would like to know one fight that nick has lost this year

  9. Thanks for the info on Brent Varty.Who is Richard Power? I have seen Nick play a couple of times this year still pretty good in his role. Nick was good when his head was in the game. His grammer is probably better as well.HES{I think it is He's}.

  11. Oil Country....Richard Power is a former Tommie who was the defensive partner of Mike Couch in the 2005-2006 season. He wore #37. He was actually drafted AHEAD of Rick Nash if you can believe it in the OHL draft.
