BATHURST – Two third period goals pushed the Saint John Sea Dogs past the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, 2-1, on Friday night at the KC Irving Regional Centre.
After struggling to get anything going offensively in the opening 40 minutes, the Sea Dogs managed to get things going enough in the third to down the Titan.
Luke Green got things going at 4:01 of the final frame, scoring an outstanding coast-to-coast goal to tie the game at 1-1. Then 1:40 later, Mark Tremaine scored a shorthanded marker to give Saint John a 2-1 advantage – and that’s the way it would end.
As you can see by this handy map showing shots in the first and second periods, the Sea Dogs just couldn’t generate a whole lot of chances in dangerous areas.
Sebastien Auger made 27 saves in the win while Reilly Pickard made 27 stops in the loss.
