HOW IT HAPPENED

  • With eight minutes left in the first period, with the Ephs on the power play, Josh LeBlanc tapped a pass by the Williams defense for a breakaway.
  • LeBlanc moved from the left across to the middle of the offensive zone and fired a shot on goal that was narrowly stopped.
  • A few minutes later and on the power play, Travis Broughman swung a pass out to the wing where Garrett Clegg fired it on goal.
  • The Ephs made the initial save but Shane Bull gathered the rebound and snapped it in for the 1-0 lead with 4:22 left in the opening period.
  • Three minutes later and after Oswego killed off the Ephs third power play of the period, they earned the third power play of their own with about forty-eight seconds remaining.
  • The Lakers won the ensuing faceoff and swung it back up to Clegg at the point who fired a wrister over the left shoulder of the Williams goalie for the 2-0 lead.
  • Bull earned the assist on the goal and Oswego took the two-goal cushion into the intermission.
  • Kozikoski was big in the second period, stopping a three-on-one chance and making some key saves in the Ephs’ second power play of the period.
  • The final two minutes saw Oswego take a pair of penalties and kill off a five-on-three in the final 37 seconds of the period.
  • Williams was set to start the third period with 24 seconds of five-on-three and then almost a minute of additional power play.
  • Kozikoski made a big glove save through traffic to start the third period during the five-on-three segment to help kill off the two-man advantage.
  • Oswego then killed off the second power play to maintain their 2-0 lead.
  • With just under a minute left, Broughman gathered the puck near the top of the Laker defensive zone and skated it all the way into the Ephs’ empty net.
  • There were 18 total penalties called in the contest, with Oswego going 2-for-8 on their chances.
  • Williams outshot the Lakers 50-42, with a 24-18 edge on-goal.
