SHL President John Schachnovsky acted as Titanium’s captain on the night and he and nifty Jouni Heinonen lead the way on the evening with Schachnovsky scoring a goal and an assist, and Heinonen popping in two markers as well as adding an assist. Panithi “Jeto” Nawasmittawong scored Titanium’s other goal. Gabor Toth, with 15 saves on the night, had another tremendous game between the twines for Titanium and handled his disappointment at not being named player of the game two weeks in a row well, saying “Of course, I played good, but Jouni (named Rolling Stone game MVP) played well too.”
Adrian Meyers had another huge game for the Spitfires, scoring two goals, including one he popped in after a razzle-dazzle end-to-end rush, but missing some key players the Sukhumvit bench looked in disarray and the Spitfires never seemed to find their groove. The times that they did threaten Gabor stood tall resembling his countryman, Nikolai Khabibulin, the Bulin Wall. Credit must also go to the Spitfires goalkeeper Jason Cotsmire, who made 22 saves keeping his team in the contest throughout the game. The nimble Titanium defense was led by Remo Nyffenegger and Jykri, who each had two assists on the night.
