McAdam Says "Nyett"August 19, 2012 - United States Hockey League (USHL) Waterloo Black Hawks
The Black Hawks survived a scare early in the game, going two men shorthanded with veteran defensemen Ian McCoshen and Matias Cleland sitting for 1:25 of overlapping penalty time. McAdam made a pair of strong saves at 6:20, and Waterloo came back to full strength still scoreless.
Shorthanded three more times, the Hawks battled through to eventually take the lead seconds after the fifth Energie power play ended. At 12:35 of the second period, Vince Hinostroza eluded defenders through the right wing circle and to the side of the net. Dropping the puck back to Alec McCrea, the defenseman's shot along the ice found the back of the cage. Fifty-eight seconds later, Taylor Cammarata made it 2-0, rifling a shot under the crossbar, which was in and out in a split second.
In the third period, the Hawks went to the power play for the first time and cashed in right away. Ian McCoshen sent home a bullet from the deep slot 49 seconds after intermission. Waterloo found the target twice more during five-on-three power plays. At 4:16, Ryan Papa's chance from the right circle went off goalie Vladislav Habal and in. Then at 11:31 Cammarata lifted the puck to the top corner.
McAdam's last shutout was also against a foreign team when he blanked a barnstorming club visiting Young Arena from Harbin, China on October 10, 2010.
Waterloo returns to the ice Tuesday against Dynamo Shinnik, representing Belarus. Dynamo played their first game during the event Saturday, defeating the Omsk Hawks 2-1. Monday's matchup will begin at 3AM Central Time.
