The Acadia Axemen bid farewell to the LBR, earning a 3-1 win over the STU Tommies in their final visit to the old barn.  The Axemen staked a 2-0 first period lead with goals from Spencer Jezegou and Chris Moulson, outshooting the Tommies 11-10 in the opening frame.

Jezegou extended the lead to 3-0 in the second, before Steve Sanza got St. Thomas on the scoresheet, beating Acadia goaltender Peter DiSalvo with a shot from the right wing side to make it 3-1.  Despite being outshot 18-2 in the second, the Tommies managed to stay within 2 goals of the Axemen over 40 minutes.

STU improved with a much more aggressive forecheck in the final stanza,  outshooting Acadia 11-8 in the third, but could find no solution for DiSalvo, seeing their losing streak extend to 7 games, with a matchup against the Squirrels coming up Wednesday night in the annual Lou Chabot Memorial game.
