MONCTON - In a hunt for two points to move up the standings, the Amherst Ramblers went on a cross-boarder shopping spree in Moncton last night.
In what was a defensive back and forth game the Ramblers didn't find their two points, but they did manage to come home with a point after losing 3-2 to the Beavers in a shootout.
"Any time go out and get a point in this rink, a rink that we struggle in at times, you have to be happy," said Ramblers coach Corey Crocker. "Both teams played in spurts, it was tight-checking and both goalies were exceptional."
Crocker can't say enough about his goaltender, who made 41 stops on the night.
"Our goalie, Paddy O'Brien, was fantastic," said Crocker. "He battled every puck. He was the show here tonight for sure."
O'Brien managed to hold the beavers to a 2-2 tie until their fourth shot on the shootout.
"The guy who scored did a nice move," said Crocker. "O'Brien was great tonight."
The game started off well for the Ramblers as it didn't take long for them to get on the scoreboard when Jordan Escott scored on a power play at 3:59 into the game.
Pier-Alexandre Poulin responded for the Beavers with a power play goal and the period ended with the game tied up 1-1. Andrew Oakley gave the Rambler a 2-1 lead in the second and that's all the scoring there was in the period. The only goal scored in the third came from Antonio Mekary at only :32 into the period. There was no scoring for the rest of the period and neither team could find the back of the net in the five minute overtime.
The Ramblers play Summerside in MJAHL action on Saturday at the Amherst Stadium at 7 p.m.
