Lakers extend win streak to three

Referee, Barry Pochmara, got both Lake Superior State University and University of Alaska Fairbanks special teams involved during the first period of Friday’s game, calling 8 minor penalties in the first stanza. Lake Superior State University found its penalty killing unit on the ice just 16 seconds into the game, due to a tripping penalty called on Derek R. Smith. The big momentum setter for the game came midway through the first period with Nathan Ward being called for slashing in front of his own net just 27 seconds into a penalty kill.

LSSU was able to score the only goal of the first period with junior Dominic Osman finding the back of the net on the power play with less than 3 minutes to play in the period (17:14), for his team leading 6th goal, assists went to Barnabas Birkeland and Restoule.

Laker Trent Campbell was not content with letting Osman run away with the team scoring lead so he knocked in a power play goal of his own at 8:30 of the second period with assists going to Nathan Ward and Troy Schwab.

Captain Steve McJannet scored a short handed goal for the Lakers 15:16 of the second period to give the Lakers a commanding three goal lead. Alaska Fairbanks freshman Kyle Jones cut the lead to two goals with his even strength goal at 16:57 of the second, assisted by Nathan Fornataro and Kyle Greentree.

McJannet extended the Laker lead to three goals again with an even strength goal coming at 7:11 of the third period, assisted by Derek R. Smith. UAF’s Darcy Campbell was able to knock in a goal while UAF was playing 6 on 4 hockey with 35 seconds remaining in the game.

Laker goalie Jeff Jakaitis stopped 19 of the 21 shots he faced including 9 of 10 while shorthanded, and 4 of 5 with UAF having two additional attackers. UAF sophomore goaltender Wylie Rogers allowed 4 goals on 32 shots. LSSU once again out shot their opponent putting up 32 shots to 23 shots for UAF.

LSSU went 2 for 8 on the power play while UAF went 1 for 6 on the power play; UAF had two additional attackers when they scored their goal due to the empty net. Faceoffs where amazing close with Fairbanks holding a 37-36 lead over the Lakers.

LSSU locks heads with UAF Saturday night at 7:05.
