Markham Waxers Game Report

JAN. 18/2002 (Game 44) P1 P2 P3 OT FINAL
PICKERING PANTHERS 1 2 1 0 4
MARKHAM WAXERS 1 4 2 0 7
Markham got back on the winning track on Friday night taking the first of a home-and-home weekend with the Pickering Panthers, 7-4.  Markham controlled the pace of play from the outset and could have made the final much worse except for a number of posts and missed open nets.

Pickering opened the scoring in the first on a powerplay at the 8 minute mark.  Markham responded just over 2 minutes later when Mark Menonte and Steve Nobili combined on a pretty give and go passing play on a2-on-1 that saw Menonte bag his first goal of the night. The period ended 1-1.

After Pickering took the lead 2-1 early in the second, the Waxers waited just 1:18 before taking the lead for good.  Just 35 seconds after the second Pickering goal, Jesse Boucher tied the game when he found a rebound lying behind the Panther goalie (it was there for what seemed like 10 seconds) and tapped it in to the empty cage.  Then, 44 seconds later, while on a powerplay, Boucher fed Derek Doucette at the point and he dragged the puck along the blue line and snapped a hard wrist shot at the net.  The goalie made the stop but kicked the rebound right to Kevin Cribari who slammed the puck home for his first goal of the night and the 3-2 lead.  Later in the period the Panthers would tie the game briefly before the Waxers converted on more powwerplays.  The fourth goal was scored when Cribari deflected home the point shot of Matt Neely who was found at the blueline by Menonte.  The fifth goal was a result of a pretty passing play started by Doucette and Neely and finished by Menonte, Cribari and Ben Cottreau.  Doucette moved the puck to Neely who fed Menonte on the half boards.  As Menonte stepped off the wall, he passed the puck behind him to Cribari who then fed Cottreau with a goal mouth pass for the redirect goal.

In the third period, Menonte upped the lead to 6-3 scoring in the fourth minute of play.  Michael Fish kept the puck in the zone after a pass out from the corner by Boucher, and threw the puck at the net.  Menonte scooped up the rebound and deposited his second of the night.  Pickering cut in to the lead less than a minute later but Nobili iced the game with a goal with 2:35 left on the clock.  Jason Duffy and Cottreau executed a perfect 2-on-1 setting up the easy drop pass to the late coming Nobili who deked the goalie and slid home the backhand for the final goal of the evening.

Kevin Sit turned aside 31 shots for the victory.
