(4)Devil Dawgz vs Brewers (1)
K.Araujo and P.Paikopoulos shine in Devil Dawgz 4-1 victory over Brewers
The duo between K.Araujo and P.Paikopoulos heated up on Friday night. With the game deadlocked at one goal apiece, the two delivered in a big way combining for five points. K.Araujo notched back to back tallies while Paikopoulos set up him up twice before capping it off on a late marker. M.Trivisonno also had a big game making 31 saves yielding his only goal to C.Pirone. The Brewers scored 30 seconds into the contest and figured that they had a few more in them only to go dry the rest of the way.
(3)The Family vs The Pillows(8)
Pillows ride second period surge past Family
Already up 2-1 after one period, the Pillows used three quick goals to start off the second frame and distance themselves-from the Family. M.Salerno struck twice in the same shift-from his sweet spot that included some brilliant hand eye coordination to bat the ball-from mid air. That sequence was enough to re assure that this contest was practically decided, at least in the minds of the Pillows players. The Family struggled offensively and only had their best moments when the game was out of reach. A.Perreult scored two third period goals, and S.Cavallaro along with N.Addesa collected two points each in the loss. If there is one constant when the Pillows score this many, that will be the play of T.Settino. The centre man was able to share a hat trick with M.Salerno while N.Mucci set up three different teammates-from the back end.
(7)Killer Wolves vs National (2)
National unable to contain a pair of natural goal scorers
There needs to be a couple of key game points that teams have to address in order to defeat a team like the Killer Wolves. And since many haven't this season, National was the only team so far to hand them a loss. The problem however is that unless you play them right, the odds are stacked against you. Tonight's contest saw two natural goal scores get their way once again. J.Brunet and O.Valiquette each feasted with hat tricks while the captain D.Lafleur collected three assists. Surely it's easier said than done on recognizing who the threats are and how to handle them, but National know that they could have done a better job containing them. For now, the Killer Wolves will win the regular season battle and secure a spot in the final of the first division.
(6)HBHA vs Excalibur (4)
Excalibur putting up some good challenges only to fall short once more
If the Excalibur can keep playing the way they have as of late, than S.Sauk and his troops will be just fine when the playoffs arrive. Of course nobody likes losing, but when you drop two consecutive contests versus top teams like National and the HBHA, the near future can only be bright. This game was only decided very late when the HBHA got goals by T.Koutlis and an empty net marker-from S.Nicholson. Prior to that point, both sides entered the final frame levelled at three goals apiece. The next tally went in favour of the Excalibur courtesy of S.Ruggiero snapping the tie. Unfortunately, that lead barely lasted thanks to T.Angelis responding right away for the HBHA. That was Angelis's second of the match, who shared multi goal performances with T.Koutlis and P.Karigiannis.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Kevin Araujo of the Devil Dawgz. His two goals couldn't have come at a better time. The hardnosed defenseman broke a 1-1 tie while widening the margin on a power play marker....
Thursday March 21
(4)United Arms Jr vs Smooth Sailors(10)
J.Palmitano 4 goal night helps Sailors roll over United Arms Jr
J.Palmitano had a four goal night and the Smooth Sailors were able to solidify second place of the D Thursday division. The Smooth Sailors went ahead 4-1 after only one period and showed that they were on a mission to run up the score. The second frame wasn't any friendlier for the United Arms Jr as they gave up four markers. C.Fragkiudakis notched back to back tallies right before M.Testolina did the same to finish off the period. With the game clearly out of reach, the United Arms Jr showed some pride in the final stretch where they traded a goal apiece.
(9)Job on Demand vs Legends (2)
Job on Demand give hockey clinic in thumping of Legends
The Job on Demand was dishing out harsh lessons once again on Thursday night, putting on a clinic against the Legends. There aren't many teams that suck out the soul of an opponent like the Job on Demand. When all their players show up, chances are you need a near perfect game to beat them. Clearly, the Legends weren't' even in the same time zone for how bad it went. Too many players feasted offensively with J.Rochon leading the charge on three goals. Payam Assadi was next in line with a pair but did manage to collect the most points with six assists. If timing means anything, the Job on Demand appear to be seasoned just right for what's ahead of them.
(3)Underdogs vs SBS Trashers(4)
SBS Trsashers hang on to defeat Underdogs
The SBS Trashers once again made a charge to claim the D Thursday regular season. The contest was barely nine minutes old when the SBS Trashers pounced all over their opponent with three goals. By that rate, this game looked to spiral out of control but the Underdogs found a way to regroup and slow things down. The net two tallies came -from D.Mansour and C.Nasrallah, and all of a sudden the Underdogs were a shot away-from evening the score. But with Joe Scalia riding a hot hand, the slick forward would eventually break through for a second time to restore a two goal lead. With the win, the SBS Trashers finished off a remarkable run dropping only one game after missing out of the playoffs only a season ago.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Joe Scalia of the SBS Trashers. After setting up the SBS Trashers first goal, the natural sniper went on to add a pair in what was a close 4-3 win over the Underdogs.
These results conclude the D Thursday regular season. The top three teams will advance to the semi final rounds while the fourth place seed will take on the fifth place seed for the final spot.
(4)Underdogs vs Legends(5) The Underdogs will enter this one game playoff round as the favourites. In order for the Legends to have a chance, patience and tight defence will be their only out. The Underdogs are faster and very resilient which should give them the edge unless they run into a hot net minder in S.Morante....

(8)Left Wings vs Fat Cats(3)
Fat Cats die out in final stretch, Left Wings erupt with six third period goals
A five point performance-from D.Provost-Jarry launched the Left Wings to victory over the Fat Cats on Wednesday night. Provost-Jarry started the eruption by setting up three straight goals before netting his second to take a strangle hold on the match. M-A Morin was also in on most of the action striking three times while collecting an assist. For two straight periods, neither side came out on top. The Fat Cats once again saw their short bench come to bite them in the end. It wasn't long ago that both teams met with the game favouring the Fat Cats by the same result.
(4)Bramabulls vs UD Redz(2)
Bramabulls score two late goals to preserve unbeaten streak
The Bramabulls, who have yet to drop a game this season, used two late goals to preserve their winning streak. Although wins are hard to come by at this stage of the season good teams tend to find ways to win hockey games. Tonight was another example of that with D.Verta coming through for his second late in the game snapping a 2-2 tie. Then, just to play it safe, J.DeSua widened the margin and the Bramabulls celebrated their ninth straight victory. Even though the UD Redz fell short, this loss will remind them that anything can happen. Both their goals came-from the very same J.Abou-Sabha as the only player to get the better of the Bramabulls net minder.
(2)Knights vs Fat Roy(5)
N.Gikas sparks a pair in 5-2 win for Fat Roy
The Knights had a tough time hiding their disappointment for how the game went down in the second half. N.Gikas broke a second period 1-1 tie, and P.Elizardo followed up late in the same frame to provide a two goal cushion. The first five minutes of the third period had a wild start to it with Fat Roy outscoring the Knights 2-1. N.Gikas was able to nod his second with the help of J.Pantelis and K.Fiore. Cleary that momentum enabled the Fat Roy to be the better team. After facing 20 shots, J.Sanoudakis earned the win in net.
(4)Buckshots vs Carnage (2)
Buckshots overcome slow start in double up win over Carnage
It wasn't their best start to the night but the Buckshots knew they had plenty of time to adjust and get it right. And once they entered the second period, the response was there as they strung two straight goals to grab their first lead of the game. The go ahead marker came late in the second period courtesy of N.Erimos. Despite the bad stretch, Carnage had more than enough time to flip the switch. Unfortunately, their first period tallies was all the scoring they managed. J.Liopoulos was perhaps the major reason why Carnage couldn't get their much needed scoring as the net minder was stellar throughout two straight periods.
(3)Knights vs Horsemen (4)
Knights drop the ball late, come up empty handed in double header night
Five little minutes was all they needed to kill off. The Knights did everything right for well over two periods carrying what seemed like a sufficient 3-1 lead. Then, the final five minutes arrived, and the nightmare began. The Horsemen did something remarkable in the final instances of the game. With the help of D.Greco's play making skills, P.Carone, D.Galloro and V.Pandza all benefited in the short span of barely four minutes. The Knights may have come off a tough loss versus Fat Roy but that pales in comparison on how they let this one slip away.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Danny Verta of the Bramabulls. With the game on the line, D.Verta came up big late in the contest bagging his second to snap a 2-2 tie while preserving a massive winning streak.
Thursday March 21
(5)Scorpion's vs Mighty Drunks (2)
H.Sedeghi natural hat trick powers Scorpions
H.Sedeghi scored three goals, and in every possible way to help lead the Scorpions over the Mighty Drunks. After netting his first on an even strength tally, the Scorpions forward buried his second with the man advantage while completing his hat trick in a shorthanded situation. All three goals came in the second period alone which put the Scorpions in the driver's seat up 4-0.Finally, the Mighty Drunks got on board thanks to a pair of markers-from S.Archambault, but the damage had already been done. There was no doubt that M.Cimenelli was somehow involved offensively. Game in and game out, the Scorpions know that they can rely on him, and tonight wasn't any different as he opened and closed the scoring while collecting a helper....
Monday March 18
(9)Capitals vs United Armenians (2)
United Armenians crushed by Capitals in 9-2 rout
The Capitals only started to look serious as of the mid way point of the game. Prior to that moment, this contest was extremely close with the Capitals up only 3-2.Then, the game started to shift and the United Armenians slowly fell apart giving up three tallies just before the second period ended. T.Bertin dressed for a first time this season and wasted no time making an immediate impact with three consecutive markers. M-A Bernier chipped in with a pair while setting up the games last four goals. Most areas of the game favoured the Capitals, who had a 37-20 shot advantage. The United Armenians got their lone tallies-from Y.Derohannessian and E.Mavroudis as the only two players to figure out C.Fortin.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Marc-Andre Bernier of the Capitals. In almost every instance that the Capitals scored, M-A Bernier had his hand in on it accumulating a total of six points.
Tuesday March 19
(7)GK vs River Rats(1)
GK score 4 in third to pull away
While things started off tight between the two, the third period belonged only to the GK. P.DiGiacomo's early third period goal deflated the River Rats, who found themselves trailing 4-1 from-that point. Clearly the GK were much more superior dominating many aspects of the game. Offensively, Terrance was the only player to score twice while M.Fortin took care of the back end stopping all but one shot. This result definitely wasn't what the River Rats were expecting. M.Richard may have scored but wasn't pleased on what he got-from his teammates. Unless they address key aspects of their game, the River Rats will continue to struggle....
Monday March 18
Chic Choc shutout Immigrant after settling for draw
After settling for a 3-3 draw, the Chic Choc entered the second game full of confidence to rout Les Immigrant 4-0.There was no question that the Chic Choc deserved the win. Four different players had scored while F.Peloquin shut the door throughout the entire match. J-R Lemay had already riffled a pair in the previous game before adding the winner along with an assist in the second encounter. Les Immigrant got their scoring done-from H.Garabedian, A.Addante and A.Daghlian as all three players combined for six points. With the season winding down, Les Immigrant would have preferred some extra points to the standings rather than settling for only one for how close the race to the playoffs are.

Dragons rebound after opening loss to Yellow T-Shirts
The Yellow T-Shirts may have enjoyed their opening 3-1 win over the Dragons but two victories would have satisfied the appetite for how tight the standings are. Unfortunately, a bad start and a late period breakdown left them settling for only one win instead. The Dragons jumped off to a 4-1 lead in the second encounter which forced the Yellow T-Shirts to open up and take chances. And despite the deficit, this contest wasn't over until the final buzzer rang. N.Katsifolis and T.Bergomi each scored to pull their club within one and all of a sudden the Dragons were feeling the heat. Luckily enough, P.Assadi made some late saves to close out a nail biter. He may not be known for his goal scoring but G.DeStefano had a night to remember striking three times while collecting an assist.

Tocas collect a pair of unexpected points versus LG HC
If the Tocas knew that both their games would go the distance with the LG HC, the paper work would have been prepared and signed for that kind of a deal. To their surprise, both games did go the ultimate distance and the Tocas banked a pair of key points that may help save their season. The first match looked to be wrapped up in regulation time with the LG HC up by a goal, but that was until P.Santullo ripped a bullet top corner giving F.Baratta no chance at all. The shootout however belonged to the LG HC thanks to D.Bertand and E.Girouard scoring on the breakaway attempts. The second contest had a similar occurrence of what just happened, this time with the Tocas leading late in the game. Then, with only two minutes remaining, E.Girouard riffled his second to send the game once more into a shootout. Neither side came out on top as both teams each scored twice. Once again, E.Girouard and D.Bertrand made K.Koch look behind him while S.Marricco and K.Araujo did the same to F.Baratta.

The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Giovanni DeStefano of the Dragons. Playing quietly under the radar, G.DeStefano was masterful on Monday night foe the Dragons accumulating four points that included three markers....
Sunday March 17
(1)Butchers vs Icons (10)
E.Girouard and S.Robineault feast combining for seven goals
Once again, the Butchers were not the better team. The Icons were able to take it to them dominating every aspect of the game. When you're chasing most of the match, a negative result is always to be expected. At least three goals went in every period with E.Girouard leading the charge on four tallies. Next in line saw a long time and familiar line mate cause havoc as S.Robineault popped in three. Eventually, the Butchers did have something to celebrate about when S-A Longo took away C.Stavriadis's shutout.
(2)Fatal Demons vs Lynx(8)
Lynx use their speed to out play Fatal Demons
The Fatal Demons were under no illusions that they got beaten by a quicker team. To their credit, they did hang in there for most of the match. However, once the third period hit, the downward fall began. The Lynx pulled away notching five goals that saw R.Beaver hit the target three times. Only three players scored in the win that included the captain J.Lang and J.Labadie sharing a pair. This result was a classical example of a younger and quicker team having the legs in the final stretch of a hockey game, especially going up against only two lines.
(5)Shocker's vs Slayers (3)
Slayers comeback attempt falls short in loss to Shockers
If only the Slayers could have started the way they finished. Playing error prone hockey, the Slayers were stuck trying to dig themselves-from a very deep hole. So dominant were the Shockers virtually -from the opening draw that the Slayers were left reeling. The Shockers scored early and often, grabbing a 5-0 lead before there was finally a response-from the other team. But despite the huge deficit, the Slayers refused to give up and eventually made a game of it. Unfortunately time just wasn't on their side as they settled for three consecutive goals. The beauty with this win for the Shockers was that everyone pulled their weight that resulted in five different goal scorers. D.Bourque was also major factor as the net minder enabled his club to play with a substantial lead.
The SalumiVino player of the night goes to Randy Beaver of the Lynx. With the game close after two periods, R.Beaver took it upon himself to break it wide open by riffling three markers....
Tuesday December 18(Final)
(5)GK vs River Rats(3) Game 1
GK hold on to beat River Rats
In what was arguably the single best game of the season so far, the GK took it late in the contest to capture the win. There were breathtaking goals, plenty of scoring chances and heart stopping close calls in the final moments encased inside a breakneck pace sometimes seen at this level of a game. The River Rats, despite tying the game late courtesy of M.DeTorre found themselves immediately playing-from behind only seconds after the equalising goal. P.Genereaux came to rescue the GK right before J.Bradley secured all doubts. The win came with scoring efforts-from five different players while the River Rats saw M.Crialese do most of the damage with a pair of markers. The result may come as a disappointment, but the River Rats will look to take positives knowing that the game could have gone either way.
(0)River Rats vs GK(2) Game 2
Y.Labonte's third period goal secures Premier division title for GK
It was a third period goal-from Y.Labonte that propelled the Gk to a 2-0 victory over the River Rats. Prior to that moment, both sides had their fair share of chances and enough shots to crack the barrier. And with the urgency lying on the River Rats backs, they just couldn't get their first. Props go to the GK defence and goaltender for keeping a clean score sheet versus a lethal River Rats hockey team. It's not often the River Rats go empty handed in a hockey game. Once Labonte opened the scoring, the pressure fell on everyone's shoulders to answerer back. Unfortunately for the River Rats, they kept hitting a wall and never got to the GK's net minder. K.Kuczmarski set up Labonte's winner and J. Bradley summed up the series by feeding an empty cage. On behalf of Hockeyballe.com, congratulations go out to Dahn Nguyen and the rest of the GK for capturing the Premier division title....
