THUNDER TAKE DOWN LIONS, 6-3

TROIS-RIVIERES – The Adirondack Thunder scored three goals in the second period in a 6-3 victory on the road over the Trois-Rivieres Lions on Friday night.

Ryan Francis gave the Lions a 1-0 lead on the power play in the first period. Francis took a pass in the left circle and lifted a shot over the right shoulder of goaltender Jake Theut for the lead at 7:12. Assists were credited to Cedrick Montminy and Brett Stapley.

The Thunder answered back later in the opening frame courtesy of Brandon Schultz. Patrick Grasso came in on a two-on-one with Schultz and set him up for his fourth of the year. The goal came with 4:08 remaining in the first and the game was tied at one after 20 minutes.

After the Lions scored early in the second to take a 2-1 lead, Adirondack rattled off three goals to take a 4-2 lead into the third. Colin Long scored his sixth of the year on the power play at 9:31 to even the score at two.

Just over two minutes later, Grant Jozefek jammed the puck by goaltender Joe Vrbatic for a 3-2 lead. The goal was Jozefek’s eighth of the year with assists from Shane Harper and Matt Stief and came 11:35 into the second.

Patrick Grasso gave the Thunder a 4-2 lead off a great feed from Ryan Smith. From below the goal line, Smith sent a backhand pass to Grasso and he one-timed it into the net with 1:49 left in the second. The goal was Grasso’s 17th of the year from Smith and Brandon Schultz and Adirondack took the two-goal lead into the third.

In the third, Colin Long and Shane Harper added empty-net goals for a 6-3 win. Jake Theut made 24 saves in the victory.
