What A Comeback

october 8Down two goals twice during the game, your Halifax Mooseheads used the return of Timo Meier to get their second win of the season. The Mooseheads couldn’t make their passes and gave the puck up quite a bit in the first period and at the end of the 20 minutes found themselves down 0-2. Meier, who turned 19 today, took the first penalty of the game and Halifax suffered because of it as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada took a 1-0 lead. Sanche scored again 4 minutes later to give the Armada a strangle hold on the game. Or so it looked like, a delay of game penalty at the beginning of the second period and a 5 on 3 shifted the momentum to the Mooseheads big time. Cavan Fitzgerald scored on the 5 on 3 to close the gap, than Arnaud Durandeau had his second tally of the season on the powerplay to tie the game. Before the middle frame ended though, the momentum was back in Blainville’s corner with the Armada securing a two goal lead again. The birthday boy got the ball rolling in the third scoring 56 seconds in to the frame before Danny Moynihan tied the game once again, this time at 4-4. In overtime, with a 4-on-3 powerplay situation, Halifax took full advantage and Meier had the magic play to win the game for the home team.
