Moose play role of David as they defeat Goliath in 6-5 OT win over Marlies

Recap of the Moose OT win over the Marlies.

Moose 6 Marlies 5

The Moose have had their collective clocks cleaned by the Toronto Marlies throughout the season having played seven times already and been outscored 33-9 heading into the game this afternoon.  The Moose showed some resilience as they easily could have folded up shop going down 3-1 to the best team in the AHL.  Instead they dug deep and made quite the game against a team that was 48 points ahead of them in the standings.

Tonight’s Top Moose:

Eric Comrie: continues to display a poise and skill level that seems unusual in someone so young.  He made some key saves with his team already facing a deficit and held the Moose in the game.  He faced 43 shots and made 38 saves.

Chase De Leo:  Plays with a real zest for the game.  Really doesn’t take any shifts off and today was no exception. Got the game started with a goal just 47 seconds into the 1st and then scored again on the power play early in the 3rd period to give Manitoba a 4-3 lead.

JC Lipon:  His first period slashing penalty resulted in the Marlies getting back into the game after a hot start for the Moose but he continued to play a really tough, physical game and ended his night with one goal and four assists. Given the flak jacket by his teammates for post game interviews.

Nic Petan:  Continues to show off his play making ability and while usually he is the one dishing the puck tonight he finished off 3 on 3 OT with a very nice display of hands to put it home from in tight.
