Flames' seven game winning run was halted here by Panthers, who have faded recently, but played better here the game went on and gained a deserved victory. Flames looked a bit flat after winning 6-5 at Steelers last night. The first period was quite physical and close-run. Flames had slightly the better of things and took the lead after 9:20. There were several scrambles around the visitors' net but NM Garnett had a great night. There were a few flare-ups too, mainly caused by the visitors.
In the second, Panthers came out powerfully and equalised early on. The game was then quite even, still physical, and again Garnett and good defending kept the scores level.
In the third the visitors upped their game and Flames had no answer. Halfway through the period Panthers took the lead through Rissling and had the initiative. Pitcher then robbed a defender and finished well to kill the game. The best goal of the game was an empty-netter at the end, Farmer won the ball superbly to set up Guptill for a great finish.
Seemed quieter than usual tonight. Two Zambonis to clear the ice today, one seemed to be following the other....
If you're going to/been to a Hampshire Premier League match, I'd really appreciate you filling in a questionnaire - available in the Groundhopping/General section, or just PM me for a copy. Thanks.
