In game one, substitute Tom Price, who has been battling the flu, turned in a splendid performance for SC-Titanium scoring two goals while Mike Wilson added a pair of assists for SC-Titanium, giving him nine points on the season and earning him the Rolling Stone Pizza player-of-the-game award. With five minutes left in the game, Joe Lamantia scored the winning, and his first, goal of the season, on a disputed play with many AWARE players claiming the puck did not cross the line. But the goal stood and minutes later Jari Eerikainen netted the clincher for SC-Titanium sealing their victory.
Brandon Vick continued to play his hot hand scoring two goals for AWARE on the night, Darren Boodle added AWARE’s other tally and Devin Michael had two helpers for his team. Yves Gaboriault made 23 saves of the 28 shots he faced for AWARE, while Gabor Toth stopped 17 of the 20 shots fired his way for the winning SC-Titanium team.
John Schachnovsky’s assist on Jari Eerikainen’s goal on his final shift of the night enabled him to keep his point streak alive at nine games. Up until that time, John had been shut down by the dynamic Swedish defensive duo of Patrik Lundback and Christian Olofsson.
