Game Story
The Manitoba Moose (18-22-3-2) went toe-to-toe with the San Jose Barracuda (24-11-1-3) in a rematch of Friday’s game at MTS Centre. It only took 3:24 for the Moose to get on the board as Peter Stoykewych wired a low shot past Troy Grosenick on the powerplay for a 1-0 lead.  San Jose caught a break 1:41 later when a pass out front redirected into the Moose net off a defender to tie the game 1-1.  The visitors gained the lead when John McCarthy redirected a Barclay Goodrow shot past Jamie Phillips with 2:23 left in the frame.  The Moose goaltender kept Manitoba within one, turning aside 13 shots in his first period of AHL action.

San Jose added to its lead 4:18 into the period off some slick execution on the powerplay.  Nikolay Goldobin went down low to Marcus Sorensen who tapped the puck back out to Daniel O’Regan who fired a shot to the back of the net.  The Barracuda made it 4-1 three minutes later when Buddy Robinson was able to knock in a rebound.   Manitoba nearly pulled back within two when Dan DeSalvo had an open look, but the leading Moose goal scorer rang his shot off the post.  The Moose outshot the Barracuda 15-12 in the second, but trailed 4-1 after 40 minutes.

The Moose offence started to click midway through the third.  Kyle Connor scooped up the puck in the neutral zone, raced onto the attack and fired a wicked shot from the top of the slot to get Manitoba within two.  The rookie wasn’t done there.  With just under five minutes left in the period, Connor grabbed a Cormier rebound and deposited it in the goal to make it 4-3.  With the net empty and the Moose pushing for an equalizer, Marcus Sorensen was able to find the empty cage to restore the two goal lead.  Only 11 seconds later, Quinton Howden struck for the second game in a row to pull the Moose back within striking distance.  Unfortunately for the home-side, the push fell short with San Jose taking the 5-4 win.

Quick Hits

  • Jamie Phillips made his AHL debut for the Moose, making 34 saves.
  • Brenden Kichton registered the 100th assist of his AHL career.
  • Kyle Connor registered the first multi-goal and multi-point game of his AHL career.
  • Game attendance was announced at 7,326.

Head Coach Pascal Vincent – "We battled hard. We had more scoring chances than they did, we had more shots. We generated good offense. That goalie's pretty good. Their goalie was... I don't know if he got a star, but I'm sure he was one of the three stars. So that's what we expect from our guys. We want them to push and after the second period we wanted to make a statement to ourselves, and know that we can believe in the fact that we can come back in games. I think we moved forward today. We accomplished something."

Goaltender Jamie Phillips – "I thought we played well. I mean, obviously we're playing a really good team, they're second in their division, but we battled back. We did a good job. A lot of guys stepped up, especially at the end. It was just one of those ones where if I made one more save we keep it tight, but it is what it is."
