Knights Streak Ends Against Wolfpack

The Knights fourteen game win streak came to an end over the weekend when they faced a two game homestand against the Hartford Junior Wolfpack. The Wolfpack defeated the Knights 6-2 in regulation and they also won 2-1 in overtime.

The Knights had as much confidence a team could have going into the weekend against the Wolfpack after winning their fourteenth straight game. The Wolfpack started the scoring in the first game with a goal in the first period and also the first goal in the second period. Knights’ Dan Perez answered back with an unassisted tally on the power play. Then, the Knights fell into penalty trouble and were scored on short-handed. Zach Remers added on another goal for the Knights with assists coming from John Regnart and Dan Perez. When the third period began, it was all Wolfpack as they went on to score three unanswered goals to win the contest 6-2.

The second match-up between the two teams was a much more evenly matched game. The two teams ended regulation time tied 1-1. The Knights goal came from David MacGregor off of plays by Zach Remers and Dan Perez. Forty-one seconds into the extra period, defenseman John Ryan took a boarding penalty that put the team on a 4-on-3 penalty kill. The Wolfpack took advantage of the call and scored the game-winning goal to win the game 2-1. Knights goaltender Tyler Huberty played admirably turning away 42 of 44 shots.

As any team would, the Knights will head into the week to regain their focus and fix their mistakes from playing a very tough Hartford Junior Wolfpack club. The Knights look to bounce back as they head to Simsbury, Connecticut this coming weekend to play in the EHL Showcase before heading off to their Christmas break.

14 Wins In a Row for Knights

The Knights played host to the New York Bobcats for two games over the weekend. The Bobcats were left defeated in both games by scores of 4-2 and 3-2.

After going two weeks without game-play for the Knights, shaking off the rust for the team was inevitable. The Bobcats started the game by scoring two goals within the first six minutes of the game. However, after being put in a 2-0 hole, the Knights woke up and started to take it to the opposing team. The Knights ended the period 2-1 off of a goal by Geno DeAngelo. After the intermission, it was all Knights as they scored three unanswered goals. Dan Perez, Tanner Bennett, and Blake Brazil scored for the team. Goaltender Kenny Graham made 24 saves on 26 shots in the victory.

Both teams made some minor adjustments for the second match-up and the tilt was evenly matched until the end. Neither team scored a goal in the first period. The Bobcats scored the first goal of the game in the second period. About two minutes later, Steven Orizotti netted a goal for the Knights off of a feed from Blake Brazil. Then, a couple minutes past the midway point of the last period of the game, Stephen Kelly scored with the assists coming from Bryan Hodges and Tanner Bennett. Following the goal, the Knights went on the penalty kill for seven straight minutes to close out the game. The Knights started the penalty kill with an unassisted breakaway goal by Kelly for his second of the game. The Bobcats scored a late goal with less than a minute left to cap the scoring. The final score ended up being 3-2 in favor of the Knights. Goaltender Tyler Huberty stopped 25 of 27 shots to finish the game.

The two victories over the weekend puts the win streak at 14 for the EHL’s first place Knights. Currently, the Knights hold a 21-5-0-0 record for 42 points in the standings.

Stephen Kelly – EHL Offensive Player of the Week

The Knights are pleased to announce that forward Stephen Kelly has been awarded the Offensive Player of the Week by the Eastern Hockey League. He ended the weekend with an assist on the game-winning goal of the first game and two goals in the second game against the New York Bobcats.

Stephen Kelly is a 1995-birth year, 6-foot, 190-pound forward from Columbus, Indiana. In 24 games played for the Knights, he has 7 goals, 7 assists, and 12 penalty minutes. Kelly is not particularly known for his offensive play, but his consistent, hard-nosed play away from the puck and in the defensive zone has led to offensive opportunities.

“I’m very happy for Stephen,” replied Head Coach/GM Justin Lyle. “It is particularly gratifying when a player like Stephen gets recognition for his offensive play because he does a lot for us in defending against teams. He takes care of his own end and he’s a great penalty killer for us.”
