Storm Beginning to Brew As Thunder Win Second Straight

Cody Conine/InsideTheRink

The Adirondack Thunder came into Tuesday’s game riding a high after their most decisive game of the year, where they defeated the Worcester Railers by a score of 7-0 before the holiday break. Adirondack will play four games in five nights, starting tonight with the first of two north of the border vs. Trois-Rivieres. Adirondack showed no rust from the holiday break as they got off to a fast start, out-shooting the Lions 8-2 to start off the opening frame. Trois-Rivieres would roar back and end up getting the first goal of the game as Anthony Beauregard got the Lions on the board first. Nicolas Lariviere would double the Lions’ lead, and the Thunder were starting to look like the team they were before that win over Worcester. Adirondack would need three unanswered goals to take home the victory tonight, and that’s exactly what they got as Colin Long gave the Thunder some life as he would deflect one off the stick of Xavier Parent to get the Thunder on the board with a PP goal. Ryan Smith came into tonight’s game with one goal in his first 22 games of the season but would get his second of the season just 2:53 into the third to tie the game up at two. With less than two minutes remaining, it would be Ryan Smith who would get a break-away and beat Philippe Desrosiers to give the Thunder a 3-2 lead that they would hang on to. Isaac Poulter wasn’t named one of the three stars tonight but has seemed to have found his game in his past two starts and made some incredible saves, including one in the final seconds to hold the lead to pick up his second win of the season.

Adirondack and Trois-Rivieres will face off again on Thursday Night at 7pm.
