February 26th

The Point Edward Blackhawks got some time to prepare during a 10 day hiatus since they last met the Mt. Brydges Cougars on Feb 15th. The Third game in this series of playoffs brings the Cougars to the Blackhawks home ice on Feb 26th.

The first period stared out quiet. Neither team making any big plays or hits. The Hawks created an opportunity late in the period when Daniel Marr accepts a pass from Chris Courtemanche and finds the back of the Cougars net to make it a 1-0 game.

The Cougars started to put the pressure on in the second period however the Hawks did not falter. The Cougars took a roughing penalty midway through the period. But the Hawks were unable to capitalize during the advantage. Nearing the end of the period Bradley Hunking picks up the puck just outside the Hawks zone which generated a breakaway with his shot going just wide of the net. Shortly after that, Bradley stepped up and gave a Cougars player a solid check stopping the player from making a shot on the net! The score remained 1-0 after two periods of play.

Early in the Third period, the Cougars shot the puck which got a lucky bounce off of a defensemanís pants to make it a 1-1 game. The Hawks kept cool headed and continued to try to get past the Cougars Defense. Late in the period the Cougars managed to get a bench penalty, giving the Hawks another one man advantage. For a second time this game the Hawks were unable to make the most of the advantage and the game ended in a 1-1 tie.

The series total: Blackhawks in the lead with 4 points and the Cougars with 2 points.
