The Puck Pimps were on a five game losing streak, taking on the
last place Hooligans. The Hooligans have played some good hockey in spurts, but
were unable to get their first win until their previous game.
The Hooligans began with a goal to make it 1-0, but were unfortunately tagged right back when Greg Mustoe tied it at 1-1. Going down a man, the Hooligans were able to keep the Puck Pimps out during the PK, but for practical reasons, didnít accomplish what they set out to do because right after the penalty ended, and before the fifth skater could get into the play, Chris ďThe KazmanianĒ Devil Kazlauskas was able to untie it and make it 2-1. The Puck Pimps would get another power play, but were unable to score, nor could they replicate scoring as soon as the penalty ended. Before the end of the first period, Tarek Bonna, who was just coming off a skate sharpening, was able to increase his teamís lead to 3-1, which was the score heading into the second.
Hooligans scored two goals quick in the second to tie the game 3-3. No more goals would be scored in the second period, with that 3-3 score holding for the third, and the Hooligans eager to win their second straight.
The Puck Pimps would go in front on Bonnaís second goal to make it 4-3, when the forward sped down the wing, roofing to puck. Trying to get some breathing space, the Puck Pimps were unable to because Hooligans tied it to make it 4-4. Bonna regained his teamís lead with another goal, his third of the game for the hat trick to make it 5-4. Time was running out on the Hooligans, but they called timeout with 1:49 to go, and getting the extra attacker on. Bonna pounced on this, scoring on the empty net to make it a 6-4 lead to get the "natural hat trick" as well, but it wasnít over yet. The Hooligans got the extra attacker on again with 42 seconds remaining, but it would not be enough, and the Puck Pimps won 6-4.
Nick Minarik was in goal stopping 24 of 28 shots in the victory.
