V-Reds Bounce Back With 7-1 Win At STU

A much stronger effort was delivered by the Varsity Reds on this night as the good guys went home 7-1 winners over STU.  UNB scored the first goal of the game  midway through the first period when Dion Campbell burried a pretty back-hander.  UNB would add 2 more goals in the second thanks to defencemen Spencer Corcoran and Josh Kidd.  The Tommies managed to bury one past Travis Fullerton, leaving the score at 3-1 after two periods.

The third period was all UNB.  Chris Culligan scored a pair, Hunter Tremblay notched one, and Josh Kidd continued his strong performance with his second of the game.  Travis Fullerton was solid all night for UNB, especially early in the game when the score was close.  This extends UNB's win streak to 24 games in the Battle of the Hill.

The game didn't come without a price.  Daine Todd left the game after what appeared to be an injury to his arm part way through the first period.  Everyone recalls the trouble he's had with shoulder injuries in the past, so we'll cross our fingers that this is nothing serious and that Todd will be back in the lineup before too long.

That would be Matias Keränen (http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=9542) I hear he has previously played pro hockey in Finland so he is in his 4th year of eligibility. Surprised to see him in and MacNeil/Lynes out.

MacNeil was a game time scratch ... not 100%

Bad news about Todd. Hopefully he'll be able to return at some point during the season.

whats the scoop on todd

I guess he separated his shoulder in last night's game. If he requires surgery, they're saying he could be done for the season.

What about Lynes?

David Kilfoil said...

Healthy scratch, with the Finn getting a chance to play.

It's nice to have the kind of depth that allows them to sit a Lynes or MacNeil and not really miss a beat...just imagine if they wee completely healthy...

Eric said...

Yeah - hard to believe players like Hepditch and Corcoran would be health scratches if the two Bens were playing.

Also, if Tyler was ready - which forward would you sit to let him play?

Spoke to Gardiner today. He confirmed that Daine has a separated shoulder. No idea yet when he'd be back.

I wonder if this is any way related to what happened to him in the past, or is it a completely new injury? Is it something that is going to require surgery and be a long term thing, or is it less severe? It would be a huge blow to lose him for an extended amount of time...

Also, any chance we see Procyshen and/or MacNeil in the lineup this weekend?
