Flames complete 4 point road weekend
John Dunbar had a 3 goal night, including the shorthanded winner, and the Flames jumped out to a 4-0 lead that eventually translated to a 7-4 Patton Conference win at Coventry Blaze. Dunbar opened it at 5:36 and Kruise Reddick counted a powerplay goal a few minutes later. A 14th minute Jesse Craige follow up had the Flames in a 3-0 lead at the break. They extended it to 4 early in the 2nd through Geoff Walker, but seconds later Brett Robinson got Blaze on the sheet. At 26:17 Dorian Peca cut the deficit to a pair, but a Dunbar shorthanded marker had the 3 goal lead back in play at 5-2. Just over halfway through the frame, Jordan Pietrus made it a 2 goal difference once again, and that is how the club’s began the 3rd. Dunbar’s Hat Trick goal in the 48th minute made it a 6-3 game and Rhett Rachinski on the powerplay shortly thereafter had the 7th, but a late Blaze reply by Gaelan Patterson pulled it a bit closer ahead of time expiry.
