Danbury Saves Season, Bests Carolina 6-2
A frustrating night for the Carolina Thunderbirds ended in a 6-2 defeat at the hands of the Danbury Hat Tricks in Game 3 of the Commissioner's Cup Final.
Despite big saves from Greg Hussey and spectacular efforts all around, Daniel McKitrick's 2 goals proved to be a huge difference in the outcome.
Both of Carolina's goals came in the first two periods, both from defensemen, and both during 4-on-4 play.
Tucker Firth opened the scoring when he finished off a wrist shot in the early going of the first. After Danbury tied the game, a spectacular individual effort by Joe Kennedy gave Carolina a 2-1 lead.
Danbury answered with five unanswered goals, and Carolina hit three goal posts in the game to boot.
Game 4 will be tomorrow night at 7:00.
