RiverDogs melt Frostbite 5-2
RICHMOND, VA- A balanced attack, key goaltending and a never say quit attitude powered the Richmond RiverDogs to a 5-2 victory over the Adirondack Frostbite and moved the team into a tie with the Quad City Mallards for 8th place overall in the United Hockey League. The RiverDogs and Frostbite traded a pair of first period goals, Mike Oliveira and Todd Grant with the markers for Richmond. From the second period on, it was all RiverDogs as Joey Bastien, Bill Vandermeer and John DiPace got goals for the victors. Mike D'Alessandro made some key saves in the game, stopping 23 of 25 shots for the win in nets.
