Moncton upends STU

Jonathan Groenheyde, making his return after a three game suspension.
The Tommies gave a good effort tonight versus U de M but came out on the wrong end of a 4 to 1 score.  Les Aigles scored 2 goals eighteen seconds apart in the middle frame and STU was never able to close the gap.  Goaltender Jon Groenheyde started in net and was rock solid after a 3 game absence.

The first period was scoreless and both teams looked sloppy in the early going.  Moncton buried two chances at 2:48 and 3:06 of the second to take a lead they wouldn't relinquish.  Felix Poulin (Sanza, Cameron) cut the lead in half 56 seconds into the third period but the Tommies would not get any closer.

U de M scored on the PP at 10:42 to restore the two goal lead and would score into the empty net to give you the final score of 4 to 1.  Groenheyde was sharp facing 42 shots while STU sent 34 shots the other way.

The Tommies are off this weekend as the AUS all-star game will take centre stage on Friday night at 7PM from the Grant-Harvey Centre.
