After a bad start to their first round playoff series with the St. Thomas Stars on Thursday night, a delay in the start of the game due to a power outage and a 3-1 loss, the Sarnia Legionnaires were looking to regroup as they went into the Timkin arena to face the Stars in game two.
Sarnia would keep things tight through most of the first period, but late in the frame would get into penalty problems putting St Thomas on the power play twice. Jarret Marks and Trevor Bogaert would get back to back penalties and that would result in goals from Peter Fleming and then Adam Keyes. With just under a minute to play and Sarnia being a man short Josh Barraclough would get one behind Jesse Hodgson of the Stars for a short-handed goal.
Brett Fisher would score the only goal in the second period getting the puck from Mason Millman to put it behind Will Barber to put the Stars up 3-1.
Sarnia would go on the power play in the third period, giving Greg Hay the opportunity he needed. Taking the feed from Brock Perry, Hay would beat Hodgson. But that would be it for Sarnia as the Stars would hold on for a 3-2 win.
The Legionnaires now have their work cut out for them as they return to the Sarnia Arena on Sunday night for game three. Being down two games to none puts Sarnia in a bad position, one thing they do not want to do is go back to St. Thomas down 3-0.
