Grizzlies Shutout Bone Crushers 3-0 To Win Championship.

BEDFORD —  Led by John Hines, the Grizzlies are now MAHL Champions.

1st Period–Bonecrushers came out strong with a 5-0 shot advantage & then went on the powerplay after a double minor slashing call on the Grizzlies. During the 4-minute penalty kill, the Grizzlies took advantage of tight defensive pinch & their Captain, Hines scored the first of his game-high two goals with a short-handed to open the scoring. It was a 1-0  game at the end of the first period.

2nd Period– Again Bonecrusher’s came out flying with a 3-0 shot advantage but goalie D Carpenter came out big with some key saves.    Elena Nova arrived at the rink late & joined midway through the period adding some depth at forward. There was lots of back & forth action, tons of incredible backchecking & stick-work but no scoring. 1-0 after two periods of play.

3rd-period– Defenseman Mike Medieros added the game’s second goal on a slapshot from the point that went through massive traffic in front of the net and beat Bill Osbourne to put the Grizz. up 2-0. A little over a minute later, Hines added his 2nd goal of the game on a blocked shot at mid-ice and beat Osbourne on a deek move backhanded. Grizzlies continued to dump the puck into the Bone Crushers end and were able to hold on for the shutout.

Team Black Erupts for 17 Goals in High Scoring-Affair. Win 17-10.

Cambridge–  For a team entering last night’s game with a 1-2-1 record, they played as if they were undefeated. Team black’s offense was clicking on all cylinders, coming up with an astonishing 17 goals in their 17-10 win over Team White.

It was only three games ago that this same team skated to a 0-0 tie. Since then they have come up with 12 goals, and 17 goals.

Even though Team White fell to 0-4 on the season, they definitely battled and kept this game interesting. Thomas Lenane came up with another four goals, as he now leads his team with eight on the season. Lenane’s battle against the Team Black team’s goalie all through the game was quite exciting. With 13:43 Lenane was stonewalled on a breakaway by the goalie and just 5 minutes later, Lenane was shown the glove on a shot right between the faceoff tops. Lenane persisted with just 6 minutes left in the first and tried to get one past him but again, the keeper stayed strong denying him the entire first period. Lenane eventually broke down the wall and beat one past him early in the second.

John Vlacich also shined for Team White in the loss. He also came up with four goals and now has seven goals on the season.

These two teams will square off against each other again next Sunday night at the Simoni Rink in Cambridge. Team White will naturally seek revenge and try to get their first win of the season. It’s only a matter of time until they start to gel and begin to put a few W’s on the board.
