"The shorthand team was really good tonight," said goalie Tyler O'Neill, who recorded 18 saves in the win. "Lake Placid couldn't really possess the puck in our end and we were getting the puck down the ice. Most of the shots they had were from outside, and my teammates always gave me a good look at them."
"We just were not working hard enough on the power play," Lake Placid head coach Keith Clark said after the game. "There were a lot of times that we were not setting up right, and when we did, we got decent chances. They were skating and moving well and they got rewarded on a shorthanded opportunity."
The Blue Bombers broke up O'Neill's shutout just over three minutes into the final period, as Dillon Savage put home a deflection off a shot by Dylan Smith to give the Bombers their lone goal.
"We talked about going out and winning the third period and build off of that," Clark said. "We got a couple of good chances in the period and we accomplished our goal, so there were some good things that we can take out of this game."
Brody Hayes made 21 saves for the Blue Bombers.
