GLENS FALLS, NY- The Adirondack Thunder sold out the Cool Insuring Arena for the second straight night. Despite their twelve-game winning streak ending, they picked up a point as they lost 2-1 in overtime to the Trois-Rivieres Lions, “Played seven forwards most of the game; I thought we played really well, I think we played fantastic hockey. With Zach Walker being suspended, Patrick Grasso being injured, and Tristan Thompson going overseas, Adirondack would sign Trevor Adams, who last played with Union College back in 2022, “I got the call today at about 2:00-3:00, so it wasn’t what I was expecting my Saturday night to look like” said Adams.”

Adirondack would open the scoring as Ryan Orgel would found a rebound that bounced out to the circle and fired it past Joe Vbretic at the 5:05 mark of the opening frame. Injuries have been hurting Adirondack as of late, and tonight it would be more of the same as Mike Gillespie left the game early, and Jace Isley missed a chunk of time in the first and second as he was getting stitches. Trois Rivieres would get on the board halfway through the second on a delayed penalty as Anthony Beauguard scored to extend his point-streak to three games and has points in back-to-back games after missing 13 games with an injury.

Adirondack, despite giving up 19 shots in the second, would come out strong in the third, and despite either team being unable to score, the Thunder would hold the Lions to only 12 shots on six shots on goal in the third. Both teams would have some PP time during the extra frame, but it would be Jokav Novak who’d find the back of the net to give the Lions the extra point as they’d pick up the win 2-1. Joe Vrbetic would make 40 saves in the win.
