forum Replica Roex . If, as you have already said, you would buy an unparalleled Replica Gucci Handbags, take a good look at that forum and contact the salespeople personally to ask ALL the questions before proceeding to a purchase. And if the answers do not convince you, let it go.Of course, Replica Christian Dior Handbags Travolta apologized and the bad drink is over. At least on his part since he recently presented the Ocala Film Festival in Florida.In short, what is undeniable is that the style of Travolta is very personal and, largely, responsible for its success despite its scandals, so if the actor has chosen Breitling as his favorite Replica Roex Watches, we will not be the others That we deny to Travolta the great personality that transmits its aspect. And it seems that Victoria has managed to go a step further, getting her look and that of Replica Watches are referent, not for the general public, but for other celebrities so the relevance of what they wear is even greater.

(3)Brew Crew vs Shockers(1) Game 1

Brew Crew set tone, capitalize on power play in game 1

The Brew Crew administered a thorough whipping on their special teams to jump start the series. They scored twice on four occasions and squelched the Shockers man advantage killing off four straight penalties .By the end of the match, D.Verta and S.Fabrici took full advantage of the opportunities while the Shockers missed out on their chances. Verta went on to add his second late in the game to secure the win. The Shockers did have plenty of shots and chances only to hit a hot net minder. C.Muccino earned the victory after allowing only a first period goal by T.Salberg.

(6)Shockers vs Brew Crew(3) Game 2

Power play comes to life in must win game for Shockers

The Shockers struggled mightily with the man advantage in their previous game. But after making the necessary adjustments, the reverse effect happened. Even though the Brew Crew took plenty of trips to the penalty box, they were never able to kill it off. All six Shockers goals came on the special teams with the first five on the power play. J.Blunt made his chances count by bagging a pair. The story of the match however was no other than M.Blackman. He was able to once again put a fingerprint on the result by scoring while setting up four goals. This contest was close and leveled 3-3 until two late goals by the second period doomed the Brew Crew.

(1)Brew Crew vs Shockers(0) O.T Game 3

C.Moutafis caps off a thrilling final with OT winner

Everyone imagines scoring a championship goal at some point in time. It's the last goal scored of the season and its sets off a lifetime of memories. In tonight's case, C.Moutafis captured the moment as the only player to find the back of the net. Unlike the two previous games, both sides played a little more cautious trying to avoid going to the penalty box. As expected, the net minders shined and the defense was extremely alert in hopes of avoiding mistakes. However, no matter how careful a team could be, something is bound to happen. The overtime period was only 1:30 old when C.Moutafis lifted the hearts of his teammates notching the biggest goal of the season. This series had everything possible that you would expect- from two competing teams.  It had plenty of goals, lots of penalties resulting in special teams, solid defense and outstanding goaltending. And what better way to close it off by going the extra mile in a game three overtime. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Chris Palermo and the Brew Crew for taking it all.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Chris Moutafis. His teammates won't forget that one single play that ultimately decided the championship.

Friday April 20 (Finals)

(6)National vs Bramabulls(2) Game 1

National draw first blood with game one win over Bulls

The Bramabulls talked at length throughout the course of the week on how to try and contain a team that's running on all cylinders. Unfortunately, it didn't translate in this particular game. National did what they do best and that is to utilise their speed. After a scoreless opening period, the game broke wide open with National capping the frame 3-2.Then in the span of only one minute, the Bramabulls knew they needed to rely on the next game in order to bounce back. C.Dagenais and his captain M.Pinheiro each scored during an early third period span to put the game out of reach. That was the National's captain second of the game as the only multi goal scorer of the contest.

(7)Bramabulls vs National(6) S.O Game 2

G.Follano plays for the big games, dominates the shootout once again

J.Morina ran slowly back and forth toward the net, showing forehand, then leaning quickly to the left to fake a backhand before slipping it right in the top corner. In what was a must win situation versus a solid hockey team, and with everyone eagerly watching what would happen, the Bramabulls star player was a big reason why this series got extended. As huge as that goal would appear to be, his shorthanded marker in the third period may have been the series saving moment. National had the championship in their hands up 5-3 while being on the power play only to see it slowly slip away.The Bramabulls would eventually level the game on a power play goal by their captain A.DiPerna. Even though a shootout can be argued to be a 50-50 situation, every Bramabulls player was confident enough that G.Follano would pull them through. The net minder can barely remember losing in those circumstances after being there many times before.

(0)National vs Bramabulls(1) Game 3

P.Charbonneau scores unforgettable championship goal

With overtime looming in a scoreless game three mini game, the Bramabulls d-man delivered a moment of brilliance that won't soon be forgotten on either side of the court. Smart players often know when to time an opportunity. Charbonneau snuck in just at the right moment when he riffled a precise wrist shot to beat F.Lamarche. The corner stone defenseman keeps showing how much of a complete player he is. It wasn't long ago that he captured a championship with Bijoux. Now,only a couple of months later, he's hoisting the same trophy in a different uniform. Throughout the entire series, P.Charbonneau was essential for what the Bramabulls have come to accomplish. Apart-from his series deciding goal, Charbonneau scored twice in the previous game while playing a sound defensive series. The Bramabulls entered the night as slight underdogs, but by applying their fierce competitive nature, it just went to show that anything is possible. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Anthony DiPerna and the Bramabulls for their incredible run.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Pete Charbonneau. The Bramabulls couldn't ask for anything more-from a very vital piece. Charbonneau scored three big goals while making sure the opposition would struggle to get any when he was on.

Thursday April 19 (E1 Finals)

(6)Bramabulls vs Legends(1)  Game 1

Six different goal scorers set the tone for the Bramabulls

This contest lacked the intensity for the Legends, who seemed to be playing in quicksand. From-the get go, the Bramabulls made their opponent pay the price. They used their speed and pretty much did whatever they wanted with the ball. The score was already 3-0 by the eight minute mark of the opening frame. N.Sbarra used a precise slap shot on the power play that stood up for the winner. Knowing that the end result was inevitable, the Legends were stuck taking notes on how to address their poor play heading into game two. Nothing went right, and unless they figured out a solution, this series would lack the hype.

(3)Legends vs Bramabulls(9) Game 2

Bramabulls stick to same plan, Legends never had a chance

Even though they took plenty of time in the dressing room to tweak a few things, the Legends simply couldn't compete with a superior hockey club. The Bramabulls did the exact same thing like in game one. They were always first on the ball and often danced their way to completing pretty plays. Despite the lopsided affair, the Legends hung in there for about a period trailing only 4-3. But once the second frame hit, it was all curtains.  M.Testolina was a menace riffling four goals while M.Maggiore was next in line posting a pair. The Legends had only one good thing going for them, and that was their power play. All four of their goals in both games came with the man advantage. It was almost a given that the Bramabulls would prevail in the end. When looking at their roster-from top to bottom, nobody can deny that they are lethal. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Anthony DiPerna and the Bramabulls for capturing the E1 Thursday division championship.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Matthew Testolina of the Bramabulls. Quicker than a jackrabbit, the Legends couldn't keep up with his speed. Testolina went on to notch four goals while creating constant chances.

Thursday April 19 (E2 Finals)

(2)Scorpions vs JLR Brossard(4) Game 1

J.Pantelis restores confidence for JLR Brossard

Escaping the first period up 2-0 in a playoff game can never be a bad thing. M.Gagnon scored both goals, and the JLR Brossard were feeling pretty good about themselves. Then, in only two and a half minutes, those feelings disappeared. The Scorpions battled back getting goals-from F.Martin and A.Singh where all of a sudden this contest was up for grabs. That's up until a late second period tally by J.Pantelis re stored the lead for the JLR Brossard. Knowing that the Scorpions had the ability to come back, the men in black made sure to tighten up while relying on their net minder. P.Assadi knew that he had to make nearly every save possible in order to earn the win, and he did just that to take a 1-0 series lead.

(8)JLR Brossard vs Scorpions (5) Game 2

JLR Brossard save their best for last, crowned E2 champions

It wasn't going to be easy but the JLR Brossard found a way to be the better side in the end. This contest could have gone either way with both teams trading five goals each after two periods. A pivotal moment that may have ultimately doomed the Scorpions happened late in the second period. Rather than going up by a pair due to a power opportunity, they allowed the JLR Brossard to level the game on a shorthanded marker by S.Bentivegna. That goal sparked plenty of fuel and motivation for the JLR Brossard, who were all over the Scorpions in the last fifteen minutes of play. Already with two goals and an assist, J.Pantelis kept his foot deep on the peddle that resulted in two more tallies. Both games were extremely close after two periods. It was by the third and final frame that the JLR Brossard separated themselves-from the Scorpions. On behalf of Hcokeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Pedram Assadi and the JLR Brossard for taking it all.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Jimmy Pantelis of the JLR Brossard. The crafty forward came through once again when it mattered the most. He scored a total of five goals that included the winner in game one to help lead his club to glory.

Wednesday April 18 (F2 & F3 semi finals)

(3)Fat Cats vs United Armenians (4) S.O F2 Game 2

United Armenians pull through after Fat Cats late collapse

The United Armenians were able to avoid going an extra round when J-F Aumais levelled the game late to force a shootout. Two minutes was all that was left for the Fat Cats to force a third and deciding game. Instead, they complicated their situation and went empty handed after sending three of their skilled players in the shootout. G.Follano remained calm stopping all three breakaway attempts while G.Sangiovanni missed it by one allowing only C.Khesiafy to get the better of him. The Fat Cats looked to be in good shape when J.Mancini provided his club its first lead of the night passed the mid way point of the third period. But with the United Armenians playing relentless hockey like they've done all year long, killing six more minutes felt like an eternity for the Fat Cats, who may have needed that extra goal rather than killing off the clock.

(3)Venom vs Armadillos (5) F2 Game 2

Armadillos enforce avoiding mistake-from last week

This time, the Armadillos got it right with their two goal cushion heading for the third period. At no point did they allow Venom to battle back. Despite trailing 2-1 after fifteen minutes of play, the Armadillos erupted by the second bagging four goals that left Venom wondering what went wrong. It took only five minutes with scoring efforts-from four different players to tilt this game in the opposite direction. Once the third period hit, the Armadillos were able to bear down and give Venom almost nothing to extend the series.

(2)Armadillos vs Venom(3) F2 Game 3

45 seconds, 2 goals and a ticket to the final

Its one thing to pull off something improbable once, but for it to happen twice, Venom should try playing the lottery for the way they advanced. This was the second time in only three games that either Venom was incredibly fortunate or that the Armadillos had a dark cloud following them. Regardless the reasons, J.Parisella and J.Courteau never gave up sparking back to back goals for a 3-2 Venom lead that left only one minute on the clock. G.Bouchard had made the score 2-1 for the Armadillos 30 seconds before the late madness occurred. Shock mingled with dejection for a team that felt they got hit with lightning twice. As for Venom, they are just glad to have reached the final where they'll hope to carry their good fortune.

(3)United Arms vs Hellfish(2) F3 Game 2

United Arms win on two late goals to even series

H.Jerjian and J.Sadek scored two and a half minutes apart, and the United Arms had extra work to do after levelling the series. Their only lead came when J.Sadek struck with 75 seconds left in the contest. The United Arms knew they had to play to their full potential in order to defeat a team like the Hellfish. And by rolling three lines while getting a solid team effort-from everyone, the end result justified the result. G.Jerjian and H.Jerjian are the engines that fuel United Arms as both players keep making a mark combining for four points.

(1)Hellfish vs United Arms(0) F3 Game 3

F.Benhamadi caps game three thriller

The Hellfish are glad they have F.Benhamadi as part of their line up. The relentless forward never gives up on any play, and by working hard the way he does, good things will often happen. The contest was just 90 seconds shy of being over when Benhamadi celebrated his clubs biggest goal of the season. It was a game and series that could have easily gone the other way, considering how well the United Arms challenged the first place Hellfish. Nothing ever comes easy when there is so much on the line. But with the ball being round for both teams, it becomes only a question of time on who will benefit. Tonight, the Hellfish seized their opportunity and will be moving forward with one more chapter ahead of them.

(2)Les Raymonds vs Kentucky Blue(6) F3 Game 2

Kentucky Blue continue their stride with 2 game sweep

Les Raymonds were hoping that their early 1-0 lead would be a sign of good things to come. Unfortunately, rather than playing ahead, they found themselves trailing only minutes later. The Kentucky Blue were on a mission and it showed throughout the entire contest. They paired goals in every frame while getting an outstanding performance from-R.Estrela, who buried three goals as part of a four point night. Just like in their previous encounter a week ago, this contest wasn't much different resulting in an identical 6-2 result.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Fares Benhamadi of the Hellfish. With timing being everything, F.Benhamadi couldn't strike at a better moment. His lone goal late in the mini game sent the Hellfish through to the F3 finals.

The F2 & F3 divisions are now down to two intriguing match ups. The F2 division will feature the United Armenians taking on Venom. Both these teams know that they can win. The United Armenians have the depth which has worked for them all season. Venom, will likely rely on their offense as they have enough game breakers to make a difference. Look for the United Armenians to apply constant pressure to eliminate any time and space from-Venom. With that said, Venom will need to figure out how to create chances if then plan on winning. The other final will also be a great test for the challengers. On the one hand, the Kentucky Blue have a pair of snipers that have been tearing up the division in players such as T.Oliveira and R.Estrela. As for the Hellfish, it's all about team effort. All they need to do is apply the same game plan that's been working for many seasons.

Monday April 16 (Semi finals)

(6)Red Lite vs Black Knights(2) Game 3

M.David and Red Lite sink Black Knights

M.David may have single handily ended the Black Knights season on Monday night. Four out of the seven goals belonged to M.David alone. The skilled forward was simply ruthless finishing on every chance he got. The Black Knights knew they needed to strike first or at least keep it very close throughout the entire match. At one point, they did cut the lead in half courtesy of M.Stinziani, but that only lasted so long. It took only a pair of minutes after that for M.David to re store a two goal cushion. With only one period remaining, the Black Knights were forced to gamble in order to make a game of it. Unfortunately, when taking chances versus Red Lite, you're just asking for it. The red machine ended the series with three quick tallies only three minutes and change apart.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Matthew David of Red Lite. No one will argue that he was definitely the best player out there. The skilled forward barely missed resulting in four goals.

The stage is now set for two ball hockey giants to go at it in a best of five series. Both sides know each other quite well with the season series belonging to the P-Ball. The stakes are high and both teams have something to play for. The P-Ball want to make a name for themselves and what better way than to do it versus a legendary hockey team. As for Red Lite, like all champions, they want nothing more than to remain on top and remind everyone that they are the best team in ball hockey.

Monday April 16 (Semi finals)

F.Russo, Punishers close off semi finals with back to back shutouts

The Punishers started things off just the way they wanted on Monday night. The contest was only a minute old when C.Gingras opened the scoring. By controlling much of the action, the Punishers would eventually pull away-from the Mighty Drunks, who struggled to get anything by F.Russo. Three of their four goals came in the second period with Gingras sealing the win for his second of the contest. The Mighty Drunks had a few moments to reorganize and figure out what to do in order to try and extended the series. Unfortunately, almost the exact same thing occurred in the second encounter. C.Gingras was able to score first, and the Punishers wasted barley any time adding three more before the period ended to put a stamp on this series. J.Chiropoulos chipped in with a power play goal as part of a three point performance, and for a second straight game, F.Russo didn't need to look behind him to collect two consecutive shutouts.

Hustlers pour it on early, Corporation couldn't recover

Only 2:30 minutes went by, and the Corporation knew they were in for a long night. A.Stamiris riffled two laser's right before D.Bertrand made the score 3-0.The Corporation did have a quick response after that but the hill was too high to climb versus a team like the Hustlers. Those early goals were able to stand up as part of a 5-2 result. Now that the pressure was on the Corporation to answer back, not much changed in the second encounter. The Hustlers continued-from where they left off eventually building a 3-0 lead. There was no doubt that they were ready to reach the finals. They were more decisive with the ball and used all their players accordingly to out play the Corporation. M.Dagenais, even though he had plenty of help in front of him, still had to make some key saves in order to keep the games out of reach.

Rebels progress to take series after dropping opener

When a team is unable to keep pace as the night goes on, the fate of an outcome can easily be predicted. But it's not to say that the Degenerates couldn't prevail in this series. They did win the opening game 2-0 which at worse case would have given them a chance in a game three mini game to pull through. However, with the Rebels starting to take control by winning almost every loose ball, the inevitable was in the making. They overcame a 1-0 deficit in game three with a rapid and deflating response of three goals in only 90 seconds. In that quick instance, the Degenerates saw their season flash before their eyes. H.Ethier could be considered as the master mind for the Rebels as the slick player participated in all four goals of the mini game. Both sides were lucky to have their net minders keep them in all three games. P.Boucher was a great help for the Rebels making timely saves while P.Assadi was equally impressive giving the Degenerates every chance possible for a better outcome.

Depth scoring sends Underdogs through to finals

One key aspect of all successful teams is the ability to use all their players and get contributions-from up and down the line up. The Underdogs have achieved this all season long and tonight wasn't any different. After collecting back to back wins, they managed to score a total of ten goals that saw nearly every player collect at least a point. One player did stand out a little more in the second contest. M-A Haber opened the scoring while posting back to back tallies for his hat trick. As good as the Underdogs are for finishing in first place, the 1 Timer couldn't be too pleased with their overall performance. They allowed too many chances in both games despite being slightly better in the first periods.

(4)Underdogs vs 1 Timer(2) Game 1

(4)1 timer vs Underdogs (6) Game 2

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Hugo Ethier of the Rebels. After battling back-form a 1-0 series deficit, H.Ethier took matters into his own hands by scoring three times while adding a pair of assists.

With the semi finals coming to a close, four teams have one more step before reaching the finish line. The Punishers and the Hustlers have an abundance of talent on their rosters and no one could know for sure who will win in the end. Look for disciple to be a key factor as power play opportunities in 4v4 hockey is almost a guaranteed goal. The other semi final match up in division 2 will feature the Underdogs and the Rebels. Both these teams play a determined man on man game and have deep rosters. With mistakes being a big part of hockey, the team that limits their errors should take it home.

Forwards, defensemen and the goaltenders will give everything they got to compete for the coveted gold medal.

General Manager Francois Chalut " I would like to congratulate all the players that were considered to make this team but especially these twenty-three outstanding athletes on their selection on Masters Team Canada 2018."

M.David and Red Lite sink Black Knights

M.David may have single handily ended the Black Knights season on Monday night. Four out of the seven goals belonged to M.David alone. The skilled forward was simply ruthless finishing on every chance he got. The Black Knights knew they needed to strike first or at least keep it very close throughout the entire match. At one point, they did cut the lead in half courtesy of M.Stinziani, but that only lasted so long. It took only a pair of minutes after that for M.David to re store a two goal cushion.

Red Lite A Division Champions

Monday May 15(Finals)

(2)Black Knights vs Red Lite(4) Game 3

Red Lite crowned again as best team in hockey

After only three games in, Red Lite defeated the Black Knights 4-2, to complete a three game sweep and win the Premier division once more. Despite a respectable effort, the Black Knights got deflated in the third period where Red Lite capitalized twice less than a minute apart. J.Provost-Blais snapped the dreaded 2-2 tie for his second with the man advantage, and M.David put the final dagger only moment s later, also for his second that surely provided enough of a lead with eight minutes remaining. Every game was close in this series but the Black knights couldn’t get that timely goal to get any sort of advantage. The saying of good teams always find a way to win surely summed up this series. Red Lite, whether they trail or play with a tie will more often than not find a way to get the job done. Once again, the ball hockey giants proved to everyone how good they really are by winning the Premier division. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations goes out to Carl Ghilarducci and the rest of Red Lite for capturing the A division title.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joel Provost-Blais. The forward scored back to back goals that snapped a third period tie along with providing an assist to finish with a solid three point night.

Note that both Red Lite and the Black Knights will be representing Quebec at this years Nationals. Red Lite will be classified as QB1 and the Black Knights will be QB2.The event will take place from August 7 - 13 at Saint John New Brunswick.

Team Slovakia Wins Gold Medal at WC 5vs5 in Pardubice,Cz Republic-- Three-peat: Slovaks win wild, back-and-forth final.Canada wins silver

Patrik Svitana’s power-play goal with 1:55 left in regulation time broke a 4-4 tie, as the Slovaks won a gold-medal game in which they blew a three-goal lead, then had to come from behind themselves. Michal Hrivnak of Slovakia and Danick Martel of Canada each had two goals and one assist in the game, which Slovakia won 6-4 to “three-peat” as Men’s Ball Hockey World Champions.

 

Svitana’s goal was the first in a tension-filled third period, but the way the game started, it didn’t seem like the third period would be meaningful at all.

Slovakia struck twice before the game was a minute old, and made it 3-0 by the 7:22 mark. Jaroslav Martiniuk got things started just 19 seconds in, charging through the middle and surprising Tim Barlow with a low shot to the blocker side. Then they went right back to the attack and the Canadians couldn’t clear the zone after Lukas Madera fired a shot off the goalpost, with Hrivnak eventually sliding the puck into the net with Barlow down and out. The third goal was on a slapper by Boris Oravec on the power play, and it looked like the game would become a blowout, with the many Slovaks in attendance going crazy.

Just 34 seconds after Oravec’s goal, Remi Laurencelle got the Canadians on the board, beating Petrik five-hole from the left-wing side. Then they went to the power play shortly afterward and it took them just 14 seconds to strike, with Martel firing a blast over tournament MVP Stanislav Petrik’s shoulder.

Barlow and Petrik, who both posted shutouts in their teams’ semi-final wins, had now combined for five goals against in less than nine minutes.

The game settled down for a time after the wild start, but a pair of Slovak penalties late in the second period opened the door for the Canadians to strike twice and take their first lead of the game. On a 5-on-3, Martel’s second of the game tied it, a one-timer set up perfectly by Victor Azevedo. Then 51 seconds later they scored up one man after some nice tic-tac-toe passing finished off by Marcus Power, which thrilled the few Canadian fans in attendance and left the Slovak majority in stunned silence.

They would have something to cheer about before the period was finished, though. With 1:10 left in the middle frame, some pretty passing led to Milan Rampacek firing a ball into the open side, with Barlow having no chance.

Slovakia went hard for the win in the third period, getting several great chances, but after a shaky start, Barlow was now playing great. However, back on their heels, the Canadians took three penalties in a row trying to contain the Slovak push. They had a two-man advantage for a time, and while still up one man, the ball was worked to Svitana at the point, who’s one-time blast went through everybody, and sent the arena into bedlam.

After an empty-net goal from Hrivnak, the Slovak fans, whose emotions had been toyed with all night long, could finally let loose and start celebrating. After the final horn, they serenaded their now three-time ball hockey champions with the chant: “Zlaty hattrick.”

Reactions

Ian Moores (head coach of Canada): I think we had a great tournament. I’ve got a lot of respect for my players, the coaching staff and the Canadian Ball Hockey Association. We represented the country proudly and well. It’s disappointing to come fall short here today, we were tied coming into the third period, it could have gone either way. Overall I think we had a good tournament but going home without the trophy certainly sucks. I think the host committee did an amazing job here. The host city was great, the Czech Republic overall is a great country. They treated us with hospitality.

Jozef Ďuriš (headcoach Slovakia): We came into final with that, we want win it. We had great beginning, we caught Canada in first minutes off-guard, after them, we took the lead 3:0. But whole match was before us. That was confirmed, Canada turned around toi 4:3. But with enourmous will, enthusiasm and patience we turned the game in the end and gain the third title in the row.
