Game Recap - Game #83


Moscow Menace vs Vancouver Wolves


League favorite Vancouver Wolves took game #1 in the Continental Cup Finals, as expected, in a 4-3 victory over the Moscow Menace.  Robin Galante Nilsson put in the first goal for the Wolves, followed by Jerome Reinhart, to make it a 2-0 game after one period.


First star Tyler Reinhart made it 3-0 just two minutes into the second period.  Corey Kitson and Jerome Reinhart got credited for the assists.  It looked like Moscow was going to get wiped out; however, Paul Atreides got one back less than 30 seconds later to bring the game to 3-1 and the two teams battled scoreless the remainder of the 2nd period.


Moscow GM, Spartan, had seen enough and went into the locker room between periods.  Whatever was said, it definitely made an impact as the Menace came out of onto the ice with a different focus.  The Moscow team scored two goals within the first 5 minutes.  Both goals were scored by The Seabasstard, who was named the second star of the game.


With a tie game, the crowd started to pound on the seats and this energized Omi Aberg to fire in the game winning goal.  Moscow could not put another one in net and the game ended with a disappointing loss for the Menace but a happy Vancouver Wolves and elated third star Jerome Reinhart.


The teams play again in game # 84.

Game Recap - Game # 84


Moscow Menace vs Vancouver Wolves


Vancouver took a 2-0 lead in the best of 7 series Continental Cup Final, in game #84.  Another exciting game for hockey fans as 107 shots were fired on net by both teams but the Wolves prevailed 4-2.


Vancouver scored three straight goals in the first half of the period to take a commanding lead.  Jivere Zolnek, Hari Singh Nalwa, and Tyler Reinhart all added a goal to their stats, making Vancouver GM Nykonax pleased with his team’s performance and giving Menace GM Spartan continued heartburn.  Kyosti Karjalainen scored on a power play to bring the game 3-1 and then The Seabasstard continued to represent Moscow well and scored before the end of the first period to make it 3-2 going into the locker room.


An undisciplined second period showed no goals on the scoreboard, but several penalties.  The game was getting somewhat chippy by the referees as all but one penalty was on the Wolves during the 2nd period.  Both GM’s complained at the end of the period and it appeared the referees listened as there was only one penalty in the 3rd period.  That penalty proved to be costly for the Menace as Vancouver defender capitalized on a hooking minor by Duncan Idaho, and scored a power play goal to give the Wolves a two goal lead that Moscow could not overcome.


Thadius Sales got the first star, while repeat star earners from game #83, Tyler Reinhart and The Seabasstard stepped up again for second and third stars.


The teams travel to Moscow, where Spartan plans to even the outcome,  for game #85 and #86,
