Panthers defeat the V-Reds, again

For the second time in less than two weeks, the UPEI Panthers defeated the V-Reds, this time with a 3-2 come from behind win.

The V-Reds opened the scoring at the 9:02 mark of the first period when Matt Fillier took a feed from Chris Culligan for a short handed goal. The V-Reds scored again at the 10 second mark of the second period, this time it was Kyle Bailey with a power play goal.

Then the Panthers woke up. At the 16:42 mark, Chris Dasousa took a feed from Matt Carter and beat Lacosta to make it 2-1. 30 seconds later the Panthers struck again, this time it was Jared Gomes, and the score was suddenly tied.

The Panthers would strike again at the 5:17 mark with a goal from Devin Praught. The remainder of the third period saw the V-Reds try to tie it back up, but the Panthers were able to turn them back, with Mavric Parks making several key saves.

The Panthers tested LaCosta several times in the third and outshot the V-Reds 14-7 in the final frame, and 35-30 in the game.

With that loss, UdeM moves one point ahead of UNB in the AUS, these two teams will meet tomorrow afternoon at 2pm. Come on out and cheer on the V-Reds as they try to get back on track.

Gotta say I don't think seeing the team lose; that being said it has made for one of the most important regular season games for this team in years on Sunday...#1 vs. #2 with #1 on the line.

Can't wait!

UdeM is playing very well. But I dont consider them a threat to take AUS.

Most including myself didnt see unb gelling until second half - their great start created some false expectations! But they will soon remember they have an amazing D and great work ethic to go with talent.

Still 3/5 of a season to go and X will get their act in gear at some stage, UPEI has shown they can dance with the big guys but need more consistency, and SMU and Acadia arent slouches.

And give STU credit - they are playing for their coach now and no easy two points there.

As someone mentioned in another thread...it's funny that they have played worse since some of the injured guys have came back...I wonder if going with different lineups so often (because of other injuries, and I assume in an effort to keep everyone in game shape) has meant it is taking longer than usual for the team to gel.

They has a a similar stretch last year where they lost 3 of 4 and another one in 2008/09 where they went 1-2-1 over a 4 game stretch...and both of those seasons ended fine.

As for X, I am starting to wonder about them. At what point do their struggles go from "early season funk" to "hey, they just might not be quite as good as everyone thought they would be."

I don't know if posts here are moderated or not, but any post with the word `gay` in any context other than Happy, should be deleted.

OK, I have ripped on Desnoyers enough the last couple weeks but I got to give him credit for that fantastic pass that led to the GWG.
