Oates scores OT Winner as Breakers beat Caps 4-3
Stephen Oates scored 1:49 into overtime as the SS Pugliesevich Breakers downed the visting St. John's Capitals 4-3 Sunday night at the SS Arena. Oates took a feed from DJ Elliott and snapped one past the blocker of Kyle Downer, who was exceptional for St. John's with 48 saves. The game was back and forth all night. Shane Boland opened the scoring on a short handed breakaway for the Shore, tucking one over Downers glove. Roger Pender evened things at 1 on the PP for SJ after taking a feed from Mike Druken and roofing it over Ben Goss. Jacob Pitcher staked the Caps to a 2-1 lead in the second period on a beautiful 2 on 1 rush, snapping it over Goss' glove after he cheated of the post. Daniel Dalton tied it for the shore on the PP on a beautiful back door pass from Riley Ricks as both teams headed to the second intermission knotted at 2. Ricks then scored early in the third to put the Breakers up by one after Sean Lynch coughed it up behind the Caps net to Brandon Baird who fed Ricks. With 2:15 remaining the Caps tied it when Goss came out of his net for the two pad stack which led to Mike King having an easy shot on the yawning cage and he made no mistake to tie the game and send it to OT. This set up Oates OT Heroics after some early scoring chances from both teams. Next weekends action sees the Eagles with the weekend off, the Caps play Bell Island Saturday night and then host the Breakers Sunday night at the Rogers Bussey Arena. [2015-01-19 08:03:16]
