The Eugene Generals defeated the Puget Sound Tomahawks 6-1 tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice in the Generals first playoff in team history. The Generals had lost the previous five games to the Tomahawks, but came out gunning for Puget Sound. The Generals played a full sixty minutes of hockey, and didn’t fall prey to the Tomahawks physical play in the third period. “We played our style of hockey tonight, Generals Head Coach Robert Freeland stated. “Our team showed a lot of heart tonight knowing that they have lost the last five to the Tomahawks. The guys came in with the attitude that they couldn’t be beat, and they showed that tonight.”
The Generals went down 1-0 in the first period, but scored six unanswered goals to finish the game. The scoring from the Generals started with a Troy Mytinger power play goal. Kris Kranzky scored two goals in the pivotal first game of the series along with Ryan Schank. Lucas Romero added one more for the Generals.
The Generals will have a chance to sweep the Tomahawks tomorrow night when they travel to Bremerton, WA tomorrow for the second game of the NOR-PAC Western Division Quarterfinals against Puget Sound. The audio of John Strong and Flint Doungchak will be broadcast on GiTV on www.eugenegenerals.com tomorrow night at 7:30. For more information on upcoming games please visit www.eugenegenerals.com.
