Brampton, ONT – The Adirondack Thunder earned a point for the fourth straight game in a 2-1 shootout loss to the Brampton Beast on Sunday afternoon at Powerade Centre.
After a tough break against Adirondack disallowed a goal for the Thunder early in the first, Brampton capitalized on a late-period power play for the only goal of the opening period. Forward Reggie Traccitto fed defenseman Jordan Henry at the left point, where the 6-2 blueliner fired past Adirondack netminder Connor Ingram for his second goal of the season. Traccitto and forward Scott Jacklin collected the assists on the play, the sixth of the season for Jacklin.
Following a second period that saw the Thunder hit a trio of posts, the visitors finally broke through 40 seconds into the third as Ty Loney scored for the fifth straight game to knot the score at one. With Adirondack on the man advantage, Kevin Lough fired a shot from the left point that Loney redirected past Brampton netminder Andrew D’Agostini for his ninth goal of the season. Lough and Shane Conacher collected the assists on the play, Lough’s fourth straight game with a point.
Both teams had their opportunities in regulation and overtime but neither was able to convert, setting up a winner takes all shootout. After the first three rounds saw no goals, Adirondack’s Terrence Wallin was denied by D’Agostini before Chris Leveille scored in the fourth round to earn the Beast the extra point.
The Thunder continue on their 12-game road trip on Tuesday with a 10:45 a.m. puck drop in West Virginia against the Wheeling Nailers. The Thunder are next home on Saturday, November 25 at 7:00 p.m., which begins a seven-game homestand at Cool Insuring Arena.
