Lakehead 3 Waterloo 2 in OT
This wasn't a very exciting game to watch. Waterloo was quite content with sitting back and playing a trap all night long. They collapsed in front of the goalie and made it difficult for us to get shots through. We outshot them 42-24
Waterloo got the first goal of the game. Dupuis gave up a big rebound and the man in front was left wide open and he put it away for the 1-0 lead late in the 1st. In the 2nd, Quesnele took a stupid penalty and Waterloo made it 2-0. We answered back quickly with a PPG of our own (Grondin). Carrick got his 2nd in as many nights as he put a little snapshot through the goalies legs to even it at 2-2.
There was no scoring in the 3rd period. We had the puck for most of the period, but couldn't get many quality shots. Waterloo did have a couple of good chances in the 3rd. Dupuis wasn't overly busy in goal, but he made a number of big saves to keep it tied.
On to OT. Fillman used his speed and took the puck from our own end and skated through/around everyone and got the game winner. Big win for us. Barring a collapse, we should finish no worse than 2nd in the OUA West. We are now 15-1-0 in our last 16 OUA games
