Battle of the Brothers ™
|GAME #3||Do we start Wamsley as we have at home most of the season? Will Hrudey bounce back from losing two in a row?
We decide to go with Hrudey… wise choice.
Pittsburgh wins 5-3 on the strength of Hrudey’s 30 saves and Kasper’s 2 goals (one empty netter).
|GAME #4||Another strong game by Hrudey as he saves 23 of 25 en route to a 3-2 Spirit victory!|
|Sending it back to Charlestown with the series tied 2-2!|
|GAME #5||Someone chokes…|
|After working out all of the technical difficulties… The Battle of the Brothers ™ must continue! We managed to win Game 5 in Charlestown. Back home for Game 6 and a possible elimination game! Can the Spirit close out the Chiefs?|
|GAME #6||The Chiefs start playing for their lives and score THREE first-period goals to take a 3-0 lead! The Spirit are shocked and head to the locker room to lick their wounds and make some adjustments.
2nd period, the Spirit gets back two goals to close the gap, 3-2.
In the third, Larmer (4) with his 2nd of the night ties the game 3-3!!
With time winding down, 1:45 left to play in regulation… Goulet (5) shocks Chiefs goalie Hayward and gives the Spirit the late 4-3 lead!
Hrudey would make it stand as he saved 29 of 32.
Hayward had 34 saves, and Paul Coffey had 1G, 1A for the Chiefs.
|SERIES SUMMARY||Great season for my brother and his Charlestown Chiefs. I’ll say, this is what you get for stealing Lemieux from me! 😉
On to CapJack for a rival and undoubtedly one helluva series!!
