Adirondack Win Streak Halted with 5-1 Loss to Brampton
BRAMPTON, ON - Peter MacArthur scored the game's opening goal but the Brampton Beast responded with five straight to top Adirondack by a 5-1 final on Wednesday night at the CAA Center in Ontario.
MacArthur got the Thunder started with a power-play tally at 9:53 of the first period. Shane Conacher controlled the puck at the top of the faceoff circle and fed James Henry to the side of the Brampton net. Henry fed MacArthur with a back-door feed for his fifth tally of the year. The assist was Henry's eighteenth point of the season, matching him with Utah's Caleb Herbert for the ECHL lead.
Brandon Marino responded for the Beast with a power-play goal of his own less than five minutes later. Marino found a loose puck in front of the net that had deflected off a Thunder defenseman and flipped it into the cage past a diving Cam Johnson for his third score of the year.
Neither side scored again until the third period was nearly halfway over. Brampton put the game out of reach with three goals in span of 2:08. Anthony Bearuregard, David Pacan and Jordan Henry all scored for the Beast and those three skaters were named the Three Stars of the game.
Matt Petgrave made it a 5-1 final as he potted an empty-net goal with 11 seconds remaining.
Cam Johnson made his third consecutive start in net for the Thunder finishing with 30 saves on 34 shots. Beast goalie Jake Paterson turned aside 31 of 32 to collect his third win of the season.
Adirondack returns home to take on the Reading Royals for the first time this season on Friday evening at Cool Insuring Arena in Glens Falls. Puck drop is slated for 7:00 p.m.
