Moynihan’s Hat Trick Gives Moose PITR Victory

Your Halifax Mooseheads have their first mini winning streak of the season. The Herd’s offence exploded tonight for 7 goals with the help of the first line on Pink in the Rink night. Danny Moynihan got the game started quickly with a goal less than 2 minutes into the game before Bathurst tied it 8 minutes later. Halifax wore special pink jerseys to raise money for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation which gives grants to find a cure for breast cancer, tickets were raffled off for fans to win a jersey. After the first period the game was tied but the other Moynihan; Connor gave the Mooseheads a 3-2 lead in the second and the team never looked back onto their 4th straight PITR victory and second in a row on the season. Danny scored two more times while captain Timo Meier had four assists on the night. The Titan didn’t make it easy on the Herd to get the win though, with a clear off-side play being called a goal in Bathurst’s favor as well as plenty of rough stuff.
