Moncton defeats Tommies

Another tough outing for the guys in green and gold as the U de M Aigles Bleus dismantled the Tommies 5 to 1.  Moncton scored when they were given chances and STU was not able to convert.

U de M scored one goal in the first period and three goals in the second period to take command of the game.

Yuri Cheremetiev (Bernier, Cameron) scored a  powerplay maker early in the third for STU's lone goal.

An interesting play occurred at 5:52 of the third period.  STU was killing a penalty when a player lost his stick.  Sebastien Bernier tried to shoot/direct the loose stick out of the middle of the ice by moving it with the blade of his stick.  The stick ended up sliding toward a Moncton player that had just received a pass.  The stick hit the puck and forced the Moncton player to loss control of the puck.  The referee immediately blew the play dead and awarded U de M a penalty shot.  I suppose it was for "throwing the stick"?  It was inadvertent, as there was no way Bernier could have planned what happened.  There was no scoring chance that was ruined but nevertheless a penalty shot was called.  Jon Groenheyde did eventually make the save on the penalty shot but U de M carried on with the powerplay and would score their fifth goal with one second left on it.

The rest of the third period got chippy and 31 minutes in penalties were handed out in the final 11 minutes of the game.  Final shots on goal were 34 - 21 for Moncton.  STU was 1 for 5 on the PP and 5 for 7 on the PK.
