HOW IT HAPPENED:

  • The Rams got on the board in the opening minutes when Tom Crotty sent a long strike on net that was saved, gathered by Michael Gennello and finished off by Bryan Whelan to give the Rams the 1-0 advantage which would hold through the first period of play. 
  • After a flurry of second period penalties the Rams broke through just about halfway through when Matt Seigel finished a give and go with Whelan on the power play to go up 2-0.
  • Under a minute later the Hawks answered 4-on-4 with Donovan Tehan connecting on a one-time pass from Colby Audette to make it a 2-1 game. 

  • After more failed powerplays on both ends the Hawks squeaked through the equalizer midway through the 3rd when Luke James snuck a shot past the Rams keeper with assists from Jason Diamond and Phillip Garcia. 
  • The Rams had a player on a breakaway while shorthanded with about eight minutes to go but his shot went high of the post. 
  • Moments later the Hawks found the back of the net again when Tehan scored again after a great setup but Alex Kielczewski to take a 3-2 lead.
  • The Hawks scored again in the final minute when James finished a pass from Jason Diamond to reach the final margin. 
  • The Rams outshot the Hawks by a 35-to-32 margin. The game saw a large number of penalties, 19 overall. The Rams were 1-for-8 on the powerplay while Becker was 0-for-11 on the man advantage.
