Beast Score Twice Late; Edge Chill in Shootout
St. Charles, Mo. - The Chill scored three goals in the final three minutes of the second period to take control 3-1 but allowed two in the final five minutes of regulation to send the game to extra time where St. Charles eventually lost the shootout on the sixth shooter to fall by a final of 4-3.
Brampton, playing their eleventh consecutive road game, took the lead in the first minute of the second period on a power play goal from Rob Collins and the score would remain 1-0 for most of the period until the Chill took advantage of a pair of minors at the 16:13 mark.
It appeared the Chill had tied the game at 1-1 but a goal was waived off, seemingly igniting the team. With the Chill (3-10-4) with a 5-on-3 man advantage Andrew Conboy scored his first with the Chill on assists from Kyle O'Kane and Jordan Fox. 66 seconds later while still on the man-advantage St. Charles took their first lead against the Beast (10-8-1) when Phil Bushbacher deflected in a slap shot from Kevin Noble after the pass from Anthony Perdicaro to make it 2-1. Less than two minutes later it was 3-1 when O'Kane deflected a blast from Dan Weiss from just inside the blue line after Fox set him up and the Chill took a two-goal lead into the third period.
St. Charles controlled the action in the third, tightening up in the neutral zone and making it tough for Brampton to get any offensive flow until the Chill were hit with back-to-back penalties. Collins netted his second of the game to close the score to 3-2 at the 15:42 mark. Less than two minutes later Matt Caruana split the defense and raced in down the slot on a breakaway and beat Chill goalie Robbie Moss to tie the game at 3-3.
After a scoreless overtime period the teams went to the five-man shootout and the Chill took the lead on a goal from Perdicaro but the Beast tied the shootout at 1-1 with their fifth shooter, Tylor Michel, and Jason Pitton sealed a win after a Chill miss.
