Huskies Win Game 2

The SMU Huskies came out of the gates strong and pinned UNB in their zone early in the game en route to a 3-2 win to even the series at a 1 game each. This pressure lead to a run of early penalties, and UNB never really built any momentum in this game until it was too late. It didn't help that the bounces seemed to go against them either - a couple of shots off the post, a disallowed goal, and some disputed penalty calls to name a few - but in the end UNB's inability to capitalize on the power-play this night would cost them.

But that's ok, the loss gives the V-Reds the chance to win the championship on home ice in game 3 at the Aitken Centre on Wednesday night, no doubt in front of another big home crowd.

Go V-Reds!
