Jimmy Reed scored his second goal of the night early in the third period with an assist from Jordan Blake-Jones. Justin Huelsman scored midway through the final period off another assist from Blake-Jones leaving the final score 7-3.
ï¿½I would classify tonightï¿½s game as solid but not spectacular,ï¿½ Head Coach Chuck Kennedy said about the nightï¿½s games. ï¿½We struggled a bit in our zone with the trap Puget was playing in the first period. Then the boys started to read the play better in the second and third so puck movement out of the zone was solid. It was good to see the goal distribution as well because in playoffs we will need all lines contributing.ï¿½
The Eugene Generals play the second game of the weekend on Saturday the 29th at the Lane Events Center-Ice. The puck will be dropped at 7:35 pm with the EGHN pregame starting at 7:15 pm.
