The Waxers defeated the North York Rangers 5-3 in a game that shared many of the traits of the previous night's contest. Lawne Snyder and Paul Robinson scored third period markers to give the Waxers a 2-0 series lead.

Markham jumped out to a an early first period lead when Tom Kotsopoulos tipped home a puck from Kevin Tompkins and Brent Pollock less than five minutes into the contest. At the eight minute mark Ryan Steane scored, unassisted, when he took advantage of a Ranger turnover and made no mistake.

The second period was a disaster for the Waxers. Three straight goals allowed North York to leapfrog into the lead, momentarily at 3-2 before James Regan would blast one in with five minutes remaining in the frame from Jason Young to tie the score at 3-3.

The third period saw the Waxers once again take control of the contest at both ends of the ice. At the thirteen minute mark Lawne Snyder's wrist shot turned out to be the game winner with assists to Greg Chambers and Jason Fraccaro. Less than three minutes later Paul Robinson put the game out of reach when he delivered a big league feed from Chambers to conclude the scoring.

Once again Jeremy Wenzel stood his ground when he was needed the most and didn't allow the Rangers to get a sniff in the final half of the contest.

The Waxers have to be happy to be heading back to home ice with a 2-0 series lead but can't be too satisfied with the way they are achieving it. It's a sign of a good hockey club when at crunch time players rise to the occasion to lift their club to victory.

Game three is a rematch at Markham on Monday, February 14 at 8:15pm. Look for the Waxers to use the day's rest to good advantage and to be a lot stronger than they've shown to date in the series.
