Squirrels win final battle at LBR

It finishes as it started way back in 1960's.  A UNB win.  On the strength of 4 powerplay goals, 2 in the final two minutes of play, UNB takes the Lou Chabot Memorial Game 5 to 1.

UNB scored 2 goals in the first and another in the second period for a three goal lead heading into the final frame. 

The Tommies picked up the intensity in the third and played much better.  Randy Cameron (Morehouse, Chermetiev) scored at 7:59 to cut the lead but penalty trouble late in the period derailed any hope of a comeback.  A "too many men penalty" and a questionable call of "hitting to the head" put STU down two men with under 3 minutes to play and UNB capitalized twice for the final of 5 to 1.

I think I heard the old LBR whisper Goodbye to their old tenant UNB as they left the ice for the final time.  Maybe not so much lately but we sure have had a lot of great games in the old barn with them.  It's been fun when all is said and done.  See you soon old Squirrel friends, a new setting will be the venue the next time we meet on our home ice.
