On Saturday October 1 the Red Wings' captain Christian Powers scored the winning goal in a 4-3 game in Burlington with just six seconds left on the clock. Quite a remarkable feat. What has been even more remarkable is that in the three games following- at home to Georgetown, in Newmarket and a 'home' game at the Showcase in Cobourg against Oakville is that the Wings have been unable to record a single goal. At this level it would probably take quite a deep delving into the annals of time to find when this was last 'accomplished'.
Outshot 126- 59 over these three games, including a possible team low shots for of just 14 in Newmarket, Hamilton comes mentally limping into a home game Monday night against the Milton IceHawks.
The last three contests for the visitors have also been ones they would like to forget, being outscored 28-6 and outshot by a 133-62 count.
The Wings now have nine points from a dozen starts, Milton six from eleven.
The IceHawks play it scrappy with the most penalty minutes in the West/North led by Kyle Cecchetto with 58 minutes in the box and Justin Devincentis with 48. One of the bright lights for them so far has been Jonah Renouf, leading the club with six goals. Spencer Gourlay, Adam Nanji and Charles Williams lead pointscorers for Milton with ten each. They will be missing two players due to suspensions following Saturday afternoon's 11-3 loss to Cobourg, Lester Brown got one game and Joshua Dacosta two.
A must win for the fragile Wings!
Also on the card Monday- Cobourg should get the job done at home to the struggling Stars but beware it will be their third game in as many days and fellow strugglers Vipers and Panthers meet at the Al Palladini Centre in Vaughan.
