Game ID: 1170

In the second game of the night we had Tuck hosting the Blues.  The Blues came out firing on all cylinders taking it to Tuck who has been off for over 6 weeks but Tuck's Colin Farr was keeping them in this game as he was making save after save.  Finally with a 1:11 left in the period the Blues Ray Sprague was able to put the Blues up 1-0.  The period would end with the Blues up 1-0 but it could have been much higher if it wasn't for Colin Farr's 17 saves in the first period. 

In the second period Tuck regrouped and picked up their play to get some scoring chances but it was the Blues Reid Lesswing who would make the score 2-0 with 7:09 left in the period.  With the Blues up 2-0 frustration was starting to set in for Tuck and they would take a penalty with a little over five minutes remaining.  Although the Blues were on a power play, it was Tuck's Jeremy Deutsch who score shorthanded to make the score 2-1 Blues. Tuck would end up killing off the penalty and getting out of the period with the score 2-1 Blues heading into the third period. 

In the third period Tuck would continue to play hard matching the Blues intensity which would result in two penalties early in the period for the Blues, giving Tuck a 5-3 PP chance.  Tuck was unable to capitalize on the PP chances and the score would remain 2-1 half way through the period.  Tuck would then take two penalties of their own giving the Blues a 5-3 PP chance of their own,  the Blues were able to get one goal on the PP from Reid Lesswing (2nd of the night) to make the score 3-1.  After scoring this goal Tuck kept working hard but they would take another penalty with less then two minutes in the period to give the Blues another PP chance.  The Blues Tyler White would score on the PP to make the final score 4-1 Blues.
