Eugene, OR – The Eugene Generals (10-6) ended the Seattle Totems (12-5) eight game winning streak with authority tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice. The Generals crushed the totems 8-3, and in doing so were able to put an end to the longest current winning streak in the NOR PAC Pacific Division. The win was sweet revenge for the Generals, who received a five goal beating from the Totems the last game the two teams met, but the Generals must remain focused with one more game against Seattle tomorrow.
“The guys have to remain focused and look to the game ahead of us,” Generals Head Coach Chris Hartly stated after the game tonight. “They have to remember what happened in the second game in Seattle, and make sure that we do our job tomorrow night.”
The Generals had a huge night from first year forward Steven Slattery. Slattery single handedly scored more goals than the Totems with 4 goals in the contest. Slattery was also able to find time to assist Garrett Bossert for the first goal of the night. Bossert was also able to tally the game winner 11:24 into the second period, and had two assists on the night. Michael Frei added three assists to his team leading 23. Ben Tikka had one goal and one assist for the Generals, and was able to jump past Seattle’s Ryno Linder atop the standings for points among defensemen in NOR PAC.
The Generals came out of the gate swinging, and were able to put the game out of reach before the Totems gained any momentum. The Totems showed a lot of heart in the game tonight, as they never gave up in the game. Seattle was fighting hard until the final whistle, but the Generals were just too much to handle tonight.
The Generals will face the Totems tomorrow night at Lane Events Center-Ice at 7:35 PM. The game will be broadcast on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games or GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
