15:10, 2nd: John Furgele picked up a puck along the boards and tipped it out to Odeen Tufto. Tufto carried the puck up-ice on an odd-man rush with Alex Whelan and Brogan Rafferty before feeding Whelan for the wrister from the face-off dot.
15:59, 3rd: BC’s Jacob Tortora ties it a 1-1 with a power play goal. Off the draw, the puck bounced through the crease and found Tortora on the opposite post for the one-timer. Assists on the goal to Casey Fitzgerald and JD Dudek. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
