Second Period Stuns Jackals

December 3, 2008 - ECHL (ECHL) - Elmira Jackals News Release

Elmira, NY- The number one team in the ECHL came into First Arena and proved that numbers don't lie. With the highest winning percentage in the ECHL and most goals scored per game, the Everblades exploded for five second period tallies en route to a 7-2 win over the Jackals.

The Jackals got on the board first at the 3:16 mark of the first period on a short handed goal from Chris Korchinski. At the 4:30 mark Yannick Tifu evened the score at 1-1 on the power play. Deadlocked at 1-1 after the first 20 minutes the Jackals were in good shape out shooting Florida five to three.

The second period was an entirely different story. The Everblades lit the fuse and out shot the Jackals 12-6. They also outscored Elmira 5-1 in the second. The first goal came at the 3:20 mark when Michael Genzy lit the lamp. At the 8:35 mark Florida struck again with a goal from Jacob Micflikier. The Everblades didn't stop there as they added goals from Baker, Micflikier and Bouchard to take the 6-1 lead. The Jackals would then get a boost of life when Brad Zannon fought Travis Gawryletz. Gawryletz would hands down win his first pro toss. The Jackals would then add their second tally of the evening with a goal from Josh Aspenlind. Pierre-Luc Faubert and Craig Switzer would get the assist on the power play goal.

Anticipating a rowdy third period, things were kept pretty quiet. The Everblades would extend their lead to 7-2 on a goal from Brad Herauf at the 9:12 mark. Josh Aspenlind would toss the mitts with Brad Zannon at the 15:22 mark and bring First Arena back to life but the score would remain 7-2 to the finish.

With the loss the Jackals fall to 9-7-0-2 while the Everblades take control of first place in the ECHL with a 14-3-1-0 record.
