UNB turns 3rd period into short-handed explosion

In a game that will be rehashed for some time, UNB found themselves down 3-0 after two periods against the STU Tommies, only to score FOUR short-handed goals and an even strength one to win 5-3.

The LBR was packed with fans from both teams, and both sets of fans saw STU score three goals on seven shots over two periods. The third period is one that STU would love to forget. Jonathon Harty had a pair of short handed goals, Tyler Carroll had a short handed goal, Dion Campbell had the game winner (Even strength), and then Luke Gallant scored on the empty net short handed as the STU fans saw their team implode in the third period. Final shots were 44-17 for UNB.

Has anyone ever heard of FOUR short-handed goals in one period in CIS hockey? Or any hockey for that matter.

These two teams are at it again next weekend for the last regular season game of the year.

That was well worth the price of admission....what a 3rd period comeback. Interesting how stu hit the crossbar back when it was 3-2 for STU...could of been a different finish if that one went in.

Gotta say, the blatent attempts to delay the game (and catch their breath) after every whistle by the stu players and coaches just killed the flow of the game. The refs gotta keep the game going.

Are third period comebacks a trend to look forward to with this years team?

Bummed I missed this game, glad to hear the good news in the end!

Epic period. Amazing energy in the 3rd for UNB. For awhile I was thinking back to the UNB/X series in '10.

STU wont be able to drag it out next Friday as the visitors.

Ref had his green and gold contacts in tonight. And I honestly thought it was the STU player (Gallant?) not Bailey who was getting the head-butting penalty - at least from my angle. MacNeil got a couple of "big-guy" penalties too.

I think the Flyers hold or share the NHL record for 2 short-handed goals in one period...http://www.flyershistory.com/cgi-bin/nhlrec.cgi
I think 4 shorties should get some serious recognition.

Bruins in 2010? "In the 81st game of the season the Bruins scored 3 short handed goals in a span of 64 seconds giving the 2009-2010 team the nickname "shorty."[by whom?][10] The 4-2 victory over the hurricanes secured the bruins of a playoff spot.".....from Wikipedia

I think I scored 5 SHG in a game once in NHL '94 on Genesis.

must give st's coach props. that team looks good. best i've seen then play in YEARS. He's got them playing for him. Big unb fan stu has just gotten some bad breaks. I think it will be different story on the bigger ice surface at unb.

UNB finds a way once again. Same Ref (Jeff Hopkins) that was in SMU vs UNB game that got Coach Mac suspended. Only the untouchable NB Head Ref would put this guy in this game. No surprise he once again did all he could to try to screw the Reds. The double minor on Bailey? Even the guys on "STU" webcast thought it was going the other way.

Just read today's Gleaner. STU goalie - really? Your team gets outshot by a large margin including like 20-5 in the 3rd and you and your coach are confident "your team" outplayed them. Maybe you outplayed UNB's 2nd goalie but it stops there. Give your head a shake.

Huge 53 second 5 on 3 penalty kill by UNB with the score 3-2 helped to maintain their momentum!

UNB even with incomplete AUS stats had a huge faceoff advantage last night which is key on the penalty kills.

There's a correct game sheet on the CIS site.

Little tip. The CIS usually has their game sheets up before the AUS, and since they use a different format that seem to have fewer technical glitches.

- Yea I don't know what game Lavigne was watching. Even if he was talking about the first two periods....yes STU had a 3-0 lead but I wouldn't say they were outplaying UNB (shots were 23-11 at the time). I thought the third period was one of the best periods UNB has played in quite sometime

- One thing I didn't like though was the number of undisciplined penalties UNB took. Usually it is STU taking bad penalties like that. Can't be doing that against the better teams.

- Little disappointed in the crowd last night...only 900 or so after getting over 1200 in each of the two games at the LBR last year.

- Heard today from someone close to the team that Fullerton might be back next week...he can't get back soon enough IMO.

Interesting -

A poster over at HFBoards posted earlier today that "You can expect big Geordie Wudrick, the former third-round NHL Draft pick who scored 43 goals last season with the WHL's Kelowna Rockets, to join the UNB Varsity Reds after Christmas. Wudrick, formerly of the Swift Current Broncos and Rockets, had been playing pro hockey in Germany before returning home earlier this month.

According to U of S head coach Dave Adolph, Wudrick had been actually "kicking some tires" out here in Saskatoon, still willing to possibly stay out West, before his parents convinced him to honor his commitment to UNB."

I checked the roster of the team he was playing on over in Germany and he indeed is no longer listed on their roster, despite 9 points in 14 games. Let the speculation begin....
