Eugene, OR – The Eugene Generals (20-8) remained undefeated at home tonight after a 6-4 victory over the NORPAC Pacific Division leader Seattle Totems (26-4) at Lane Events Center-Ice. Tonight’s loss gave Seattle their first losing streak of the season. The Generals are the first team to defeat the Totems multiple times this season.
“These were two big wins for our club, but honestly our biggest concern is how we’re playing,” “With that in mind we’re all very excited about how we played this weekend. As long as we continue to improve as a team, and stick to our game, we know the wins will keep on coming, no matter who we’re playing.”
The Generals were able to get a huge game from Dylan Woodring who was able to stop all but four of the Totems 70 shots on net. Woodring made 120 saves on the weekend, and only allowed seven goals. Woodring made several acrobatic saves, but his biggest accomplishment of the weekend was making the tough saves appear routine. The Generals also helped Woodring by only giving Seattle five powerplays on the weekend.
Michael Frei had a hat trick on the night and Tyler Tymchuk scored two goals, but Erik Brody was the unexpected hero of tonight’s game with his game winning shot with fewer than seven minutes to go in the contest. Generals Captain Justin Adams moved into the second spot in points (72) in NORPAC with three assists tonight.
The Generals will face the River City Jaguars next Friday and Saturday at 7:35 PM at Lane Events Center-Ice. The games will be broadcast on GiTV. For more information on upcoming games or GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
