Rams win back and forth battle with the Bandits. An offensive outburst by the Bandits and the Rams in the first period saw the Rams leading 4-3 after one. The second period more closely resembled playoff hockey as neither team was able to tally and the scoring chances were limited. In the third the Bandits scored twice to take the lead. The go ahead goal set off goaltender Kevin Dowell as he felt he was run by the Bandits mustached Russian forward. Rams defenseman Thor certainly gave the Russian a shot, but Kevin’s point was “the guy made no effort not to run me and went right for my head.” It could have been lights out for the Rams at that point but a pair of power play goals and the relentless play of the Rams forwards, particularly the forecheck of Billy put the Rams back in the lead. The game winner, by Denny was a sniped laser from the wing that left the Bandits goalie with no chance. Robbie Mel scored an empty netter to ice the win. If the Rams can field three lines on Saturday captain Deaner is confident they can wear down the Bandits and successfully close out the series.
