Once again I was deprived of the adorable LBD...because Moncton's selfish ass wants to maintain their league record-breaking win streak. Someday my sweet LBD... someday I will see you play.
Yetman allowed 5 goals on 28 shots, and was pulled from nets after two quick back-to-back goals by the Wildcats around the 17 minute mark of the second period. You could see Yeti eyeing the bench waiting to be relieved of duty after goal 4, but when goal 5 went in shortly thereafter, and he was finally pulled, his frustration began to show as he threw his water bottle at the glass. Goalie rage is sexy...it just is. I can't explain it. MCT allowed 1 in 11 during the last period of play. According to Wuest, in a post game report from the Metro:
Overall Moncton managed to get 40 shots on net compared to the Mooseheads 29, and they were 2 for 2 on the powerplay.
Yetman was visibly upset after being pulled again, tossing his water bottle. He also did not appear impressed on Thursday, when he was yanked after allowing three goals on 10 shots. Yetman didn’t play poorly in either game, although the decision to pull him against Moncton was easily justifiable. On Thursday, Mooseheads head coach Cam Russell said he made the move because he “wanted to see what the kid (rookie Mathieu Corbeil) could do” and to “spark” a lifeless bench.
Mooseheads goals were scored by Cheremetiev and Knotek, two apiece, with assists by Bernard (x2), Knotek (x2), Pender, O'Connor (x2) and Cheremetiev. Yes, you read that right - Knotek with 4 points, Cheremetiev with 3 and Bernard with 2 (while being a minus in the caterpillars department - I totally noticed, lookin' good).
Moncton goals were scored by Matt Brown (x2), Matt Eagles, Scott Brannon (ENG), Sasha Famin, and Mark Barbario. OK, FYI: this team has FIVE guys named Matt - Eagles, Brown, Boyle, Lahey, and Bissonnette...this has got to be a record.
Linden Bahm = +2 and 5 good hits, just sayin'. SO what else. hmmmmm. Travis Randell, -12 for the season? Shake out if it baybee...you are not looking good. You are just out on the ice falling down. That Randell/ Snow combo we (and by we, I mean coaching) were looking at for secondary scoring are just not getting it done. Pender fought. It was long lasting like Stride gum. Yes, there is Video (than God for Rik).
Ohh now that I watch that video (ok, blogger is being a jerk and there is no video so link here)...poor Pender - ow. Who needs an ice pack today? I see Lane giving him multiple shots to the head with the very hand he is using to hold Pender's jersey collar.
