As the team takes the ice for the second period, the Genny band is playing a kicking version of “Don’t Stop Believing”.
Elmira scores it second power play goal of the evening at 1:06, with just six seconds left on the man advantage. Sebastian Gulder’s shot from the point is stopped by Jokic, but Stefan Schoen is on the doorstep to bang in the rebound. Some argument from Geneseo that Schoen was in the crease prior to the shot, but the goal stands.
Elmira scores shorthanded at 5:38 with a bad, bad goal. A simple clearing shot by Larry Willard hits Jokic in the breadbasket. The puck drops to his skates, and he proceeds to fall back, kicking it into his own net. 3-0 Elmira. Jeff Pesemko now in net for the Knights. He’s only played 15 minutes so far this season.
Things are looking bad for Geneseo as it takes another penalty, but just as it expires, the Knights get a 3×2 rush and Jeff McPhee beats Elmira netminder Casey Tuttle low stick side from just inside the blue line.
The teams trade penalties and Elmira gets its third power play goal of the game with 32 seconds to go. A shot from the high slot by Russell Smith glances off of Pasemko’s glove and into the net.
Some extracurriculars at the end of the period will give Geneseo a power play to start the third.
