The Buffalo Jr. Sabres are on a hot streak, coming off a pair of 4-0 wins over Milton and Mississauga.
On October 14, the Jr. Sabres visited the IceHawks and came away with a 4-0 win. Christian DiFelice opened the scoring in the second period, with the team adding on a three-goal third period to seal the victory.
Andrew Pizzo and Aaron Reinig both tallied power-play goals, with Brenden Dunning potting an empty-netter to finish things off.
Tucker Weppner was credited with the shutout after playing forty minutes in Friday’s game. He stopped all 23 shots faced. Alex Camarre stopped all nine shots faced in the third period.
IceHawks goaltender Will Rawski stopped 38 of 41 shots faced.
DiFelice and Matt Jakubowski (2a) earned first- and second-star honors for the game.
Buffalo returned home to host the Chargers on Sunday, October 16. A different rink and a different team – but the same result in the end: a 4-0 win for the Jr. Sabres.
This time, Buffalo’s offense was boosted by the return of Michael Faliero to the lineup. With his goal on Sunday, Faliero has at least a point in each of his last five games played.
Once again, Buffalo waited until the middle frame to kick things off, with Erik Urbank putting his team on the board just over five minutes in. Faliero then added one on the power-play minutes later, with Colton McKenna and Adam Tretowicz also tallying before the end of the period.
Alex Camarre earned the shutout victory with 26 saves.
Next up, the Jr. Sabres visit Burlington on October 21 before hosting Milton on October 23. It’s a 6:30 pm puck drop at HARBORCENTER.
