V-Reds Beat Axemen 5-2

Derek Yeomans bailed his team out of a sub-par first period, and then held the fort late in the third period as the V-Reds downed Acadia by a 5-2 score. Acadia held the lead twice, scoring the first and third goals of the game, but couldn't stop the UNB attack. Scoring for UNB were Hunter Tremblay with 2 goals, Kyle Bailey, Jonathan Harty, and Bretton Stamler.

Matt Fillier was ejected from the game for a checking from behind penalty that the Rogers replay calls into question. Jonathan Harty receive 5 minutes and a game misconduct for fighting and will be suspended for the next game. The UNB penalty kill deserves a medal for killing off a tough 5-on-3 late in the game. Final shots were 35-20 in favour of UNB. Derek Yeomans was player of the game.

if school kids are going to the game they should be watched by their parents .they shouldnt be allowed to climb on the glass or steel railing during the game .

Watched the game on Rogers and there is no way that Fillier's hit was from behind. Not sure what the ref saw but IMO the hit shouldn't have even drawn a penalty. He was simply taking his man out, no question. Also, where the heck was Ben Wright? I understand that he was suspended for the game against SMU but I am very surprised that he didn't play tonight. Any ideas? Oh, Procyshen indicated in a between period interview that he isn't ready to resume playing anytime soon. He's still feeling the effects of the concussion and with his history, they don't want to rush him back.

Tonight I heard that Wright is injured.. It must have happened at practise. Hope it's not too serious as UNB will be Harty less Wednesday night.. Although they still have Corcoran and Heppy.. Crazy depth.....

Thought Yeomans has played his best hockey lately and Aldred saved the bacon a few times. Would like to hear about Ben Wright and too bad about Fillier who was playing a good game until the call I could not see.

Watched most of it on Rogers. The camera angle was pretty bad. It was so far away you couldn't make out the puck.

Thats the thing with the Rogers Broadcast, the Camera is so far away from the play its looks like watching a webcast. Dave and Dave do a Great Job, but Cameras, dont do the broadcast justice.

Although the Aitken Center seems to be a crappy place to Video Tape in

Talk about a crappy arena. I have sat on rocks softer than your arena seats. The kids were fun to watch though. UNB's money AKA depth really did well tonight considering the scratches. Congrats on the win.

Seems to me like you should change the "D" in your sign-in name to a "P".

For those of us 5500 kms away and with no CHSR this weekend, what was play-by-play on the fight? I was getting text updates throughout the game, but wasn't much to go on. Who was the opponent and what did he do to get Harty all fired up?

Acadia were swarming the net trying to knock in a rebound. Whistle blows and Shutron is trying to move some of the Acadia players, particularly Chris Bruton. Shutron starts swinging (gloves on). In the scrum, Acadia's David Lomas gets into it with Jon Harty. Couldn't see exactly how it evolved in the crowd, but in the end Harty is on his back on the ice and the larger Lomas is on top of him swinging away until the officials finally stop it. Not very classy on Lomas' part. As he is sent to the dressing room Harty bangs his stick dramatically on the ice and chirps the Acadia bench to the roar of the crowd ...

I wish somebody would tell Rogers TV that their play by play camera should be on the lower tier of the press box. The guy is in the upper tier and he has to veer way down to get the shot. As somebody who has worked in television production, it should be a more level perspective. Putting the camera in the lower box would make a big difference IMO

On the Fillier hit it looked like the Acadia D-man (Prokopetz??) turned at the very last second and by that point it was too late for Fillier to stop...but the hit still did look more to the side as opposed to from behind. Prokopetz's body did look quite awkward going into the boards though...and the fact that he looked like he was quite hurt probably helped make it a 5 minute penalty.

Yep, no doubt that's why it was called that way. That seems to be the way now. It's the same with the Patrice Cormier hit. If Mikael Tam bounces back up, Cormier gets a 5-minute penalty and maybe a 3-game suspension. Now he's out for the season, which isn't a bad as far as I'm concerned. But I do agree with the post about the Fillier hit. If the defenceman skates off, then it's a 2 minute check from behind and game, which I don't agree with either. Why not simply call it boarding?

UNB has now outscored the opposition a ridiculous 53-13 in the second period this year.

I watched the game on webcast and in my opinion Shutron takes exception to the crosscheck to Harty's neck by Lomas..he was standing up for Harty who I think was momentarily shaken up by that gutless blow. With respect to the Hillier hit I concur with the referee for the major, he has to because of apparent injury, but would have gone with boarding instead of CFB. Not sure if CIS treats boarding major differently than CFB? Great game. Am impressed with UNB's speed and puck movement.
