"4th seeded McFet Red Liners Cook 5th seeded Goose Island in Thrilling 4-3 OT Shootout Win. Moves to the SemiFinals."
You never know what happens in playoff hockey including adult rec league. Teams seem to bring out all of their players for these important games as the Red Liners are no difference. But this presents a challenge with creating line combinations that may not have been seen in the past.
Being the favorites, the Red Liners came out quickly to challenge Goose Island but the Island netminder kept all the pucks out of the net. With their growing confidence, Goose scored first early in the first period off a prolonged shooting gallery at Blakey, the Liners' goalie. But the Liners would turn up the pressure in the second period as they scored 3 unanswered goals: Fogey's trickey five hole wrister, Le Fever's rainbow shot that fooled everyone, and Chucky's snapshot off a scramble in front of the net.
Goose would tie up the score off back to back goals in the third period. Most of the third period would be played without the captain, Le Fever, because of a shoulder injury. The shorter bench tried to hold back the offensive onslaught from Goose Island and killed a late period penalty. At the buzzer, both teams were tied. On the 3 man shoot, Blakey would remain perfect and not allow a single goal. This left the Red Liners to only have 2 shooters with Fogey scoring the game winner.
With the win, the Red Liners will be playing the winner of the 1st seeded Chitown Boozers vs 8th seeded Los Dinosaurs next week in the Wales Conference Semifinals. ... See MoreSee Less
