V-Reds get two BIG points

The CIS#1 ranked V-Reds looked more like themselves today, earning a 2-1 victory over the CIS #5 UdeM Aigles Bleues.

The first period saw no scoring, with the shots on goal being 11-6 for UNB. The V-Reds controlled the majority of the play in the second, but it was the Aigles Bleues who scored first, at the 3:42 mark. The second period ended with the shots 29-13 in favor of UNB.

The V-Reds finally anwered back at the 9:31 mark of the third period as Kyle Bailey took a great feed from Nesbitt to tie the game. At 12:32, Nesbitt would tally himself to give the V-Reds the lead and the victory. The final shots on goal were 46-16 for the V-Reds.

With this win, the V-Reds once again move into first place in the AUS, with a one point lead over UdeM and a two point lead over Acadia.

The V-Reds are in action next Friday as they travel down the hill to play the STU Tommies on Friday night at 7pm.

hey no comments, how could you not with a game like that? nothing good or bad about Desnoyer?surprise! Was in on the game winner!give credit where credit is do!He would be most improved from last year, last year had my fingers crossed,now i'm happy he is.best defense of the day! Great hockey by both.too bad you missed it!

That was one entertaining game! Though the first two periods were rather bland but I still found myself on the edge of my seat the whole game. Third period, I was impressed. You could actually feel some energy from the crowd - which is impressive for Fredericton. I think we all knew how important that game was.

I've been saying it most of the season, and it was officially confirmed as of tonight - Nesbitt is my favorite player of this year. He never ceases to entertain!
Gotta love Bailey too, you could see it in him that he wanted that win, he never stopped playing hard.
And really the whole team played hard most of the game.

As for the attendance, I thought the game was attended well for a Sunday afternoon game.

Anyone know what the bench minor was called for? I couldn't see what happened

I mentioned Desnoyers in the previous post's comment section. I have ripped on him alot lately so I have to give him credit for the great play/pass that led to the GWG. They need to do more of that kind of stuff on the PP (splitting the defenders with cross ice passes, mixing things up, fake shots, slap passes, etc.) instead of all the perimeter passing and D-to-D passing that doesn't seem to work with much frequency.

All in all that was probably right up there with the 3-0 win against Acadia as the best game UNB has played all year IMO. UdeM couldn't get anything going as the UNB defence looked like the one that was so great last year.

The Bench Minor Was to Craig Perry, He twirped at the Ref the Whole Time after the Hit on Corocan

UNB Bruins Fan said...

That was a nasty snipe by Nesbitt. And I don't know what more you can say about Bailey...guy is clutch. Probably my favourite V-Red since I started really following them 10 years ago.

Agreed...the attendance was good for an afternoon game. I think it was better than the Sunday game they had against STU last year actually. Although UdeM games usually always bring out a good crowd with a lot of folks making the 1.5 hour drive from Moncton. Makes for a good atmosphere

JMuise said...

Was a Good Play by Desnoyier I wouldn't say he was great though, Like when he couldn't stand up on the Ice, in front of the net, until Moncton Scored that is, than he got up limped away got to the bench and was fine, he got an ear full from yards for it too.

Was a Great Game overall, Frustrating that Kidd is hurt yet again, seems like he plays 3 games and missing 3 games over and over. Can Chad Denny not get into the lineup yet, or is he not in game shape yet, he's only played 2 of 5 games so far I think

For me this was probably the biggest regular season game for UNB since they beat SMU 4-3 in OT on a Harty goal in February 09 that basically wrapped up the regular season title. UNB was 18-3-3 at the time and SMU was 18-7, and had beat UNB in their first three matchups that season.

You could also make a case for the 4-0 win over Moncton in the last game of the first half last year. UNB was 10-4 and had lost their last two games, the first time in while that had happened. That win propelled them to a 10 game win streak and a 13-1 second half record.

Exciting game, two good skating teams. Shots show that ice was slanted in one direction more than other, but I enjoy wathcing two teams skate and hit like they did yesterday.

Only in Freddy would someone complain about "only 2340" people at the game!

Anonymous said...

the 2340 counts all season holders even if they are not in the stands so there probably was not close to being that many people there.

i wish to god they would stop anouncing everything in french and english.ffs use english.plz dont anyone say respect cause thats bullshit.those guys can speak and understand english.gotta get over this biolingual bullshit.and wheres the cheerleaders...

Anonymous said...

I love how the main cheer at Moncton's home arena, lead by the guy on the PA system is "Let's go, Aigles!"

UNB student said...

@poster above.. I will attempt to speak in your language:

bro why the heck you be hatin on the french. plz dontdo that. ffs this is the only bio-lingual province in canada. if you don't like it leav3. id be suprizedd if you go to unviersity.


Now in proper English.
New Brunswick is a bilingual province. French is an official language here. I'd love to hear what you think about the national anthem sung at the Aitken Center each game.
It's not just out of respect. There are people of the French population that do not understand every word in the English language - for example, some of the technical terms in hockey. It is important that this be announced so that everyone in attendance understands what it going on, especially when a French school(located just a few hours away) comes into town to play.

Man, if you get angered over something as petty as this you must be miserable.

You ever think the French announcements are also for the many people who make their way down from Moncton for these games? Not to mention Moncton is (or was) the only bilingual city in the country.

Also, you might want to brush up on your own english skills.

Are the announcements at UdeM games given in French AND English?

What is going on with the music at the AUC? Cotton eye Joe went out with Fantasy Island. for frig sake,get it modern and loud like other arena's in the Q etc.
Dave, go see a game in Saint John and see what it's like!

David Kilfoil said...

Louder music probably isn't going to happen ... the older season ticket holders have been quite clear about that in the past.

At the Pens game last night they were playing Cotton Eyed Joe while they replaced a knocked out piece of glass. If it is good enough for the NHL? ...

And yes, the P.A. at les Aigles Bleus games in Moncton is done in French and English for almost everything.

UNB Bruins Fan said...

I don't want loud music...but yes, I do agree they need to get more music that was made this decade.

Eric said...

We have a new music DJ (Brent Buchanan from KHJ) who has added some of the older songs and organ pieces to the mix. The original songs were sampled by Mark Phillips (Capital FM). I don't mind an organ piece now and then. The volume is always a challenge - it's never going to be load during the intermissions as Dave Morrell wants people to be able to talk - as for during whistle stops - I'll pass on the suggestion.
