Two Nations, One Winner: Tonight, the Savannah Ghost Pirates played the Trois Rivières Lions. This was the first time that the Southern team would face a representative of the Great White North. The whole game had a lot of physicality and aggression, including a brief fight in the first period. Even though they were missing a bunch of their best players tonight, Savannah won 5-0, giving Michael Bullion his second shutout of the season in his first game back from his suspension. After tonight’s high-scoring game, the Ghost Pirates have scored 46 total goals in 17 games.
First Period Frenzy: Savannah scored four unanswered goals in the first period. This single period was arguably one of the best-played by Savannah in their franchise history. Our four first-period scoring machines were: Logan Drevitch, Simon Pinard, Brent Pederson, and Pat Guay. Guay, who is back from playing with the Henderson Silver Knights, got two points in his first home game back in Savannah.
Third Period Shutout: Nobody from either team scored in the second period, making it another set of 20 minutes that Savannah’s defense was on fire. Savannah got one more goal in the third period, made by Ross Armour, and that was game over for the Lions. Michael Bullion was on fire in the net, making some incredible saves with his outstanding reflexes. Having Pat Guay back really helped our offense as he scored a goal.
The Ghost Pirates performed incredibly well in arguably their best game played this season. They next play at home on Tuesday for Jewish Heritage Night as they take on the Jacksonville Icemen.
