Elmira looked awful in the opening minutes of this one, but has rallied back from an early 2-0 deficit.
St. Thomas opened the scoring at 2:20 when Ryan Hoehn got his second of the season off a feed from Alex Coles. Just 1:22 later, Hoehn struck again, blowing down the left wing shorthanded, and beating Soaring Eagle goaltender Casey Tuttle five-hole. St. Thomas had several more scoring chances after that, and was using their speed well.
Elmira got a power play goal with 1:01 to play in the first. Some nice passing found Ryan Arnone all alone at the back door, and the put it in the weak side to cut the Tommies’ lead in half.
Elmira got the momentum going its way with the tying goal just 38 seconds into the second period. Justin Joy’s shot glanced off a defenseman’s skate and past St. Thomas goaltender Jake Maida.
