EHL: Special Teams lead to Split on road

Walpole, MA  - On Friday the Express travelled to Hyannis, MA to play division opponent Total Athletic Seahawks.  In a hard fought battle the Express were able to capitalize on 5 different power plays to come away with a 6-0 win on the road. Bryan Colburn (Cumberland, RI) would open the scoring for the Express in the first period and the team would never look back.

In the second period, the Express would explode for 5 powerplay goals.  Will Lebel (St-Bruno-de-Montarville, QC) opened the scoring only 11 seconds into the period off a quick release shot from the top of the circles. Minutes later, Ryan Edgar (St Louis, MO) would score his first of 2 off a great feed from Chris Peters (Rochester, NY). Chris Gratton (Pottstown, PA) would be next to the table as he scored off a great shot from the point. The Seahawks would fight their way back into the game but Max Flynn (Wenatchee, WA) stayed strong in net as he collected 27 saves In the 6-0 shutout. Cam Sullivan (Weymouth, MA) would add to the assault with a beautiful power play goal late in the period.

“We played a good team game and our special teams were very good. We stayed disciplined and were able to come out on top for a great win,” said Coach Lounsbury.

On Sunday the Express hit the road for a big game against division rival Boston Jr Rangers. The Express would strike first when Ryan Campbell (Scituate, MA) would go end to end for a nice short side goal. The team would later find themselves in penalty trouble, allowing the Rangers to capitalize on 2 five on 3 power play opportunities and never look back. Austin Smith (Oakland Park, IL) would stop 29 of 34 shots faced in his first game for the Express.

“It was a really disappointing game for us and the penalties didn’t make it any easier,” said Coach Lounsbury.  “Nothing was clicking for us and we didn’t come together as a team.  Players need to realize that it doesn’t matter how much skill you have, the harder working will come out victorious in the end. Tonight was just that,”  added Lounsbury.

The Express look to rebound Wednesday as the Wizards come to Rodman Arena for a 12:30pm puck drop.
