Fullerton Strong For UNB Vs. Acadia

Travis Fullerton showed us this weekend that the bigger the game, the better he performs.  He was outstanding tonight, making 43 saves and helping his team beat Acadia 2-1.  He'll return home from a tough road trip against the #2 and #3 teams in the AUS having given up a stingy 2 goals in 2 games.  Fullerton even made a big save on a penalty shot tonight to preserve the 2-0 lead. 

Scoring for UNB were John Scott Dickson and rookie sensation Chris Culligan.  Jonathan Laberge scored the lone Acadia goal.  Final shots favoured Acadia 44-21.

This is the second time this season where UNB has played in Wolfville and the shot count has been stingy towards UNB ...

This was a game where the reported shots didn't represent the play - the game was pretty even in the first period and a half, with UNB having more stretches of advantage, especially on the penalty kill, in the latter half of the game.

As already been stated, Fullerton was fabulous in nets all weekend.

I felt that as well...it seemed the person in charge of keeping track of the shots was a little generous towards Acadia...I have no doubt they had more shots than UNB (and seemed to block a fair number of UNB's attempts) but definitely not by a 2-to-1 margin...

Want to say hi to everyone back home from the Olympic Village here in Whistler, BC. Been following things on CHSR ever since I got out here in December. Great stuff! Love tuning in to hear the V-Reds keep steamrolling towards another national championship tournament. Thanks - Carl
