The Pirates peppered Goalie Curtis McElhinney for 32 shots but narrowly escaped with the win 3-2
Andy Miele kept familiar with the score sheet by scoring early assisted by Rundblad and Larrson. Not only did Ollie the Trolly get an assist but he netted his own goal late 3rd to tie the game at 2. This gives you a sneak peak of how it will look for years to come with the Coyotes enjoying the services of Miele and Oliver Ekman-Larrson. But the contest was still unsettled. Didnt take long to decide this one. Hextall put in the game winner just 26 seconds after the game was tied to give the Pirates the lead for good as they held on for the nice come from behind victory.
The win gives the Portland Pirates 6 straight wins and the division lead by 4 points. Only 3 points behind conference leading Syracuse.
With the end of the world tomorrow it appears that only the Mayans could stop the Pirate’s win streak. Just glad to have some hockey to follow until the rich guys figure out it’s worth keeping us not so well off fans happy. Because we make them rich.
