Muskies Get Buzzed On Hallowe'en

The St. Mikes Buzzers rolled into Lindsay on Halloween night, and they were full of tricks, not treats as they defeated the Muskies by a score of 4-2.

 

The first period was fairly evenly played. The Muskies may have had a slight edge when the teams were 5 on 5, but the first goal came at 13:10 with St. Mikes on a powerplay. It was Scott Tesky who beat Brett Chandler in the Lindsay goal from Luca Doctor, and Matt Pepler. Toward the end of the period the Buzzers got into some penalty trouble and the Muskies were able to get one past George Agriopoulos to knot the game at one. The goal was by Joey Vocino from Stuart Fierheller,, and Logan DeNoble and was scored at 18:50.

 

You make your own breaks they say and the Buzzers certainly caught one at 6:05 of the second. Ashur Elliot had the puck behind the Muskies goal, and whether it was on purpose or not, he flipped the puck over the goal, it hit Chandler in the numbers, and rolled into the goal. The lone assist on the go ahead goal went to Joseph Berton. From that point the Muskies play got a little sloppy as a number of giveaways occurred giving St. Mikes some good chances but Chandler held his own. Chandlers biggest stop came when he stood up nicely to block a shot on as two Buzzers broke in alone with nary a Muskie in sight.

 

The Buzzers very nearly went up by two early in the third on a power play but a goalpost denied them. The Muskies dodged that bullet and were able to draw even again on a power play of their own when Austin Eastman roofed one from in close. The assist went to Keegan Cairns. It wasn't long though till the Buzzers regained their lead though when Tesky was given a ton of space to walk around Chandler from in close. The time of that goal was 12:27. In the end it was another turnover in the Muskies end that sealed the deal when Elliot scored at 18:42 from Thomas Beretta and Berton.

 

“Chandler gave us a chance to win tonight but we lost our focus”, said Head Coach Dan west after the game. “When a team like St. Mikes gets a chance to lock down a win like that they're not going to let it go.”

 

The next action for the Muskies is Sunday afternoon at 2 pm when they travel to Whitby.

Chandler Picks Up His First Win In 5-3 Victory Over Newmarket

Brett Chandler had a ton of family support in the crowd Sunday afternoon in Lindsay as he picked his first win at the Jr. A level in a Lindsay Muskies 5-3 win over the Newmarket Hurricanes. 
 
The win helped Lindsay salvage two points out of a three game weekend which saw them drop games to Wellington, and Aurora.
 
The Muskies struck first when James Allen beat Connor Ryckman in the Newmarket goal at the 8:00 mark of the first from Brandon Washer and Matt Lewis.  The goal was the 4th of the year for Allen.
 
In the second period the Muskies power play struck when Washer went high for his 3rd of the year from Logan DeNoble, and Keegan Cairns to make it 2-0 at 8:06, and 48 seconds later it was Brock Spear’s 3rd that made it 3-0 from Troy Oakley.  The Hurricanes, supported by a large group of fans from Newmarket got on the board on a power play of their own at 16:25 when Jonathan Colley scored from Sam Hu.  With only 5 ticks left on the clock in the middle frame Newmarket spark plug Sam Hu got the visitiors within one on a goal assisted by Anthony Salemi, and Christian Dedenato.
 
The Muskies started off the third on the power play, but it was the Hurricanes penalty killing combination of Jonathan Colley, and Taylor Joseph who lit the lamp to tie the game up at 3-3 just 1:43 in.  The Muskies kept fighting though and at 5:22 Troy Oakley scored his 1st of the year from Brock Spear, and John MacDonald to put Lindsay back on top.  It was nail biting time for the Muskie fans as the dying seconds ticked down.  Newmarket were applying pressure with the extra attacker on the ice when Chandler made a fine glove save to preserve the lead.  Jack Scanlan added his 5th of the year into the empty net from Austin Eastman, and Logan Denoble to round out the scoring.
 
The win puts the Muskies just one game shy of the :500 mark at 8 wins, 9 losses, and 1 tie, vaults them past the Hurricanes into a 3rd place tie with the Stouffville Spirit in the North Division.
 
The next game for Lindsay is Friday night when the St. Mike’s Buzzer come to Lindsay.

Tigers Take a Bite Out Of The Muskies

The Aurora Tigers ran their winning streak to 10 games straight by knocking off the Lindsay Muskies by a 6-3 score on Saturday night in Aurora.

 

Things did not go well for the Muskies right from the get go. Cameron Morrison put the Tigers up 1-0 just 47 seconds in, then Daniel Mantenuto made it 2-0 on a powerplay at 1:02. Lindsay's Austin Brown got his first of two at 8:10 from Joey Vocino, and Austin Eastman to close the gap, but Aurora's Drake Broad scored at 14:08 to make it 3-1.

 

In the second Vocino gave the Muskies some hope when he made it 3-2 from Matt Marchese, and Brown at 10:29, but the Tigers came right back just 39 seconds later when Nolan Dunn made it 4-2. A powerplay goal for Aurora with 11 seconds left in the period by Eric Williams. Pretty much sealed the deal.

 

In the third Keaton Ratcliffe made it 6-2 at 11:50, before Brown rounded out the scoring for Lindsay with his second of the game on the powerplay from Owen Barnett, and Austin Eastman.

 

The loss drops the Muskies record to 7 wins, 9 losses, and 1 tie. They get right back at it with a Sunday afternoon game at home against the Newmarket Hurricanes.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Night at the Muskies Game

Dukes hold off Muskies 3-2

The Wellington Dukes came to Lindsay on Friday night, and although the game was close throughout the Dukes out hustled their way to a 3-2 win.

The Muskies came out looking to avenge a 12-0 beat down that they suffered in the first meeting a couple of weeks back in Wellington. The game got off to a good start but just over four minutes in the hinges on the Wellington players bench was busted leading to a lengthy delay. The Muskies found themselves down a man a number of times as the period rolled along. For the most part the penalty killers did very well. Kris DiClemente blocked a number of shots, and most of the ones that got through were stopped by his brother, net minder Boyd DiClemente. Late un the period though an Andrew Coupland shot from the point was redirected in front by Marco Azzano to give the Dukes a 1-0 advantage. The other assist went to Joe McKeown and the time was 18:24. The goal seemed wake the Muskies as they came back with a stron shift that saw Logan DeNoble rip one off the post. With just seconds left in the period Taylor Welsh went post to post in the Dukes goal to make his finest save of the period.

The Muskies came out flying in the second, throwing a lot more shots at the Wellington goal, and they were rewarded when Brock Spear broke in alone and beat Welsh to tie the game at 1-1 at 2:27. The assist went to John MacDonald. Wellington thought they had regained the lead a few moments later when they put the puck in, but the goal was waived off as instead the Dukes were handed a goaltender interference penalty. DeNoble rang the post for the second time in the game but that's as close as they would come at that point. At 14:10 a turnover at the Muskie blue line proved costly when Ben Sokay scored to give Dukes the one goal lead again. The goal was assisted by Griffin McCarty, and Nick Devito. The Dukes got themselves into some uncharacteristic penalty trouble late in the period, but the best chance to score came on a Dukes shorthanded breakaway. Boyd DiClemente was able to close the door though and the period ended with no further scoring.

The Muskies did not get the start they wanted in the third. Another turn over wound up in the goal at 1:13 to put the Dukes up 3-1. The goal went to Kosik Brown, from Marco Azzano, and Justin Bean. Midway through the period Keegan Cairns was handed a tripping penalty, and had a little too much to say about it and was given another 2 minutes. Just as that penalty began Wellington's Brandon Kosik was caught kicking a Muskie player which lead to a five minute major, an early shower, and a long period of 4 on 4 hockey. At 10:50 the Muskies got back within one when Austin Brown scored an unassisted marker. Dan West called his timeout with 1:29 left in the third and decided to park his goalie on the bench at that point. With :53 seconds left Wellington were handed a penalty which set up a six on four. The Muskies threw everything but the kitchen sink at the Duke's goal but Welsh held the fort and the Dukes skated off with the win.

After the game West didn't have a lot to say. “We got outworked”, was pretty much it but it was easy to sense the disappointment. “We could have maybe tied the game at the end but we didn't deserve to win”.

The Muskies busy weekend continues Saturday night when the team heads to Aurora, the Sunday afternoon they are back at home to take on the Newmarket Hurricanes at 1:30.

DiClemente Picks Up Shutout While Marchese Scores In Win Over Patriots

The Toronto Patriots came to Lindsay Friday night only to have the hosts show one of their gutsiest games of the season as Boyd DiClemente picked up the shutout in a huge 1-0 victory.

It was nice to see former Muskie Mat Robson got the start for the Patriots. Despite the difference in the standings between the two teams the first period was a very evenly fought affair. Each team enjoyed one power play but neither were able to capitalize. The Muskies best chance came late in the period when Joey Vocino had a clean chance from in close but the puck hopped over his stick at the last second. Toronto very nearly got one in the dying seconds when DiClemente was unable to corral the puck in a wild goal mouth scramble but the puck eventually wound up in the corner as the period ended.

The Muskies very nearly opened the scoring early in the second when Logan DeNoble beat Robson high to the glove side, but did not beat the post. A few minutes later though at 6:47 on the power play Matthew Marchese netted one against his former team to put Lindsay up 1-0. The goal was Marchese's 5th of the year and was assisted by Connor Annett. The Patriots finished the period with some good pressure, and ended the period on a power play but there was no more scoring in the frame.

The Muskies played with fire a minute and a half into the third when they found themselves down two men for 1:35 against the potent Patriot's power play but DiClemente and the penalty killers did the job to the delight of the home fans. The Muskies took two more consecutive minors. Before the start of the second penalty the Patriots coach called his 30 second timeout to refresh his troops. The Muskie penalty killers enjoyed the short break too, and again they got the job done. In the end the Patriots got their goaltender to the bench with :56 seconds left on the clock, but the Fish were able to hold on.

Head Coach Dan West was very satisfied after the match. “We asked everybody to commit to tough, grinding hockey, and they did that tonight.”

West also mentioned that the game was a big one for Matt Marchese. Tonight was the first time has faced his former team. He was the featured player in the Muskies program tonight, and he scored the only goal in the win, but more then that he was just happy for the win.

Both DiClemente brothers were all smiles after the game as well. When asked about the shutout Boyd was quick to compliment the entire team. “It was a good team effort tonight. The boys played well in front of me, and we're happy for the win”. The shutout was the second of the season for the net minder.

“The team battled hard all night”, he said. “We've had some tough times lately but tonight we fought through it”.

The win improves the teams record to an even 7 wins, 7 losses, and 1 tie. They are off until next weekend, but then they have three games in three days, starting Friday night when the Wellington Dukes come to town.

2014 Prospects Camp Report

The Lindsay Muskies would like to thank all of the players and families who attended our Prospects Camp at the Lindsay Recreation Complex on the weekend.

Management and coaching staff report the camp was high tempo, tough, clean, hockey. The players battled fiercly through 4 games each over 2 days and left it all on the ice for the evaluaters to decide.

Muskies management would like to personally thank the many people attending who took time to speak to one or more of our staff members to mention the quality, professionalism and attention to detail of an extremely well organized camp.

A special "thank-you" from management goes to the ladies and gentleman at the front end during registration. In addition, as many as 12 evaluaters were reported to be watching each game in all areas of the rink; their time and commitment to the Muskies is appreciated. And perhaps the hardest working individuals of the weekend were the many trainers, dressing room attendants and rink rats; you guys are the first to arrive and the last to leave... THANKS!

The Lindsay Rec Plex staff were very accommodating and we thank you for putting up with us and our scheduling changes. Thanks to all Muskies staff for your time and commitment. You are a HUGE part of our success and make us a great family! And again, thanks to all of the players and their families for considering the Lindsay Muskies for the 14-15 season.
