UNB Battles Back From 2-0 Deficit To Beat X-Men

The V-Reds found themselves down 2-0 early in the game but battled back for a hard fought 5-3 win over the StFX X-Men in Antigonish.  Scoring for UNB were Chris Culligan, Hunter Tremblay with two, Dion Campbell, and Kyle Bailey.  Travis Fullerton took the win in goal, and made 18 saves. Shots were 41-20 in favour of UNB.  With the win, UNB moves to 25-0 on the season.

UNB is back in action tomorrow night in Halifax against the Dalhousie Tigers.

Hunter's first goal gives him 50 Regular Season Career Goals.

With three points, he is at 49 for the season - one more and he will have three seasons of 50+, the first UNBer to do that! John Leblanc only did it twice.

His shorty goal was the winner to give him 4 SH goals and 8 GWGs (out of 25 - that's a third of the team's GWG)

I watched the game from the Ottawa Airport, or at least what I could between freezes. They looked slow in the first and not really into it. There was a good setup for Gallant from Hunter.

Too bad about the shorties, they hadn't given any up until tonight and then to give up 2. They did get one of their own.

I would have expected a stronger game given Xs inhuries. I look forward to Dave's review of the game.

Ken - interesting that you should mention the short-handed goals stat and there are three of them tonight.

You should buy a lotto ticket

The live feed works great from my place...of course I did log in 10 minutes to game time. No problems at all.

I actually found the feed very high quality, specialy for free. the announcers are a different story so I muted the audio and switched to dave and dave

Ken C said...

Yeah the feed was great on my end too. No interruptions at all. Perhaps the comment was about production quality? It wasn't NHL standards, but not bad at all for a free webcast. I had to mute the X broadcaster and synch up to the Daves on CHSR, but I would love to see SSN expand coverage.

SSN kept freezing up on me and screen would get distorted.

I had no problem with the broadcast either in terms of video quality....it was way better than the first game against St. FX this year when it would freeze up every 3 seconds or so.
