Northeast Generals: Week in Review

This week featured adversity overcome by both the NAHL team and NA3HL team. The NA3HL team is now on their way to the Fraser Cup as the number one overall seed after a game three win over Danbury. The NAHL team got two points out of six in a tough battle against Maine.

NAHL Head Coach Bryan Erikson

“I thought we were terrible defensively and in net all weekend. Need to be much better from the net out. Really disappointed in our guys lack of ability to score goals on Friday and Saturday. We outplayed them 5-5 but were on the kill way to much and that was terrible. Saturday we put up 52 shots and could only score 2. Today we blew a 3-1 lead and put ourselves in a 5-3 hole. Gutsy comeback that shouldn’t have happened. But we needed the 2 points and we got them. Happy to win but a lot of work to do this weekend. Krause has been fine. Scored 2 big goals today but needs to get better 200 feet.”

NA3HL Head Coach Darryl Locke

“I thought in game one we came out flat. Danbury jumped on us and scored at the beginning of the game. We regrouped quickly and scored three consecutive goals to give us a cushion. D’Mar was solid again making grade A chances look routine. From there we were able keep the pace high and secure the victory. A nice team win for the boys in game one.

Game two in Danbury we knew they were going to make a push. They’re a gritty team with excellent goaltending and we expected a tough game. I thought our forechecking lacked some jump. I don’t know if it was fatigue or just the bus ride down to Danbury but we left our legs on the bus. We were able to take the lead on a Payton Felix goal but after that I thought we were kinda hanging on a bit. We had a couple of defensive gaffes and they capitalized with two goals. We were chasing the game after that and gave up an empty net goal to end the game. Mason Joseph played good enough to win but the boys couldn’t pull it off for him.

Going into game three I knew it was going to be a super close game. Both teams play a similar style of fast and physical hockey. They gave us great games during the regular season. Sean Gorman got us going with a goal. Braeden Kennedy, in his first game back from suspension, gave us a two goal lead. Danbury cut the lead to one goal when we got caught napping in the dzone. Players from both teams were doing all the little things to will their team to win. Luke Fundator was stellar between the pipes and secured the series win. We have three excellent goaltenders. This game was Luke’s in the rotation so I had no hesitation in putting him in that situation. He was great tonight and showed why our GM Bryan Erikson went out and secured his services. All positions will again be reevaluated by Bryan and myself in the next two days. We’ll be looking to put together a lineup we think can help us win the next game. This was a small step in our quest for The Fraser Cup.”
