Just 14 seconds into the 2nd, Wilson (Peters, Crozier) banked one in from a weird angle to give the Flames a 2-0 lead. With 3:03 left in the period, Wilson (Peters) struck again, sending the Flames into the 3rd with a 3-0 lead.

Other assists came from Zach Wilson (2), Lucas Muttart (2), Brett MacDonald, Cody Jay, and Connor Gauthier.

In the final game, the Flames faced the Restigouche Coyotes. A very confident bunch, we are able to defeat them by a score of 7-3 after a chippy affair. MacLean made 12 saves in the win, and goals came from Havenga (3), Gauthier (2), O. Handregan, and Wilson.

There was no scoring in the first two periods; two periods that were very physical, and controlled by the Flames. Shots after 1 were 7-5, and shots after 2 were 14-11. The Flames used the second intermission to calm themselves down and refocus on the goal of earning the two points and earning the top seed going into the playoff round.

Just over 2 minutes into the final period, Ben Peters (MacDonald) banged one home from the top of the blue ice to give the Flames a 1-0 lead. At the 7:43 mark of the period, right when a Flames penalty expired, Lank (MacDougall) was sprung on a breakaway and finished the chance to give the team some much needed breathing room the rest of the way. After some strong defense in the final minutes, the Flames hung on and kept the shutout in tact for Stead.

2nd star of the game was Cody Jay, and the most sportsmanlike player was Brett MacDonald. Peters awarded Stead with the team player of the game helmet.

The semi-finals will take place Sunday morning at 11:30 back at the Northumberland Arena in Murray River. The other semi-final will see Cumberland take on Pownal, also at 11:30 in Georgetown.

Charlottetown opened the scoring halfway through the first period on a defensive breakdown. No other scoring took place until the third period. Flames dominated in the shots department, leading 12-3 and 21-6 respectively in the first and second periods.

Handregan (O. Handregan, MacDonald) finally solved the Abbies goaltender 1:40 into the final frame. A few minutes later, the Abbies thought they had scored a powerplay goal, however after some discussion among the officials, the goal was waved off due to a high stick. North River capitalized on the break, and after dangling through all 5 Charlottetown skaters, Peters (unassisted) scored a highlight-reel solo effort tally to give the Flames a 2-1 lead. They would hold on the rest of the way to earn the victory. Final shots were 34-10.

The Flames and Abbies will face off once again tomorrow (Thursday) night to open the Montague tournament. The game will take place at the Northumberland Arena in Murray River, and puck drop is scheduled for 8:20pm.

Flames and Gulf Storm Each Earn Single Point

Wednesday night at the APM Centre in Cornwall, the JR’s Pizza Flames and Gulf Storm skated to a tie. The final score was 3-3. Goaltender Ethan MacLean stopped 17 shots, and made some timely saves to preserve the single point. Daniel Godfrey scored his first of the season and added another assist, while Lucas Muttart had two helpers. The tie moved the Flames regular season record to 5-3-7.

The Flames opened the scoring at the 6:56 mark of the first period on a Rowan Walsh (Peters) shot that fluttered its way into the net through a maze of bodies. That was the only scoring in the period, and shots were even at 6-6 after 12 minutes.

Gulf Storm tied up the game with 8:48 to play in the second period, however, 44 seconds later, Godfrey (Muttart) roofed a shot from in tight to give the Flames a 2-1 lead. Gulf Storm scored again to tie the game with 2:01 to play. Once again the Flames responded quickly, this time 24 seconds later. Owen Handregan (Muttart, Godfrey) finished off a nice passing play to restore a Flames lead. North River led 3-2 after 2 periods, and also led in shots to the tune of 17-12.

The Flames held off a strong Gulf Storm attack for most of the 3rd period, however gave up the tying goal with 5:00 to play. With less than 2:00 to play the Flames were forced to kill off a 5-on-3 powerplay. They were able to do so to salvage a point.

Bantam AA Reads at Westwood

The Bantam AA Flames traveled to Westwood Primary School in Cornwall on Friday, December 19 to read to several of the Grade 3 classes. The classes were divided into small groups and the boys read Christmas stories in French and English to the children. The students were very excited to see the boys - some of them asked for autographs and performed Christmas songs for the players! The boys did a great job and were very attentive and kind to the youngsters - we can all be proud of how they represented NRMHA and their community - they were true harbingers of the Christmas spirit! Well done boys!

The Flames offence began to click in the 2nd period, starting with a Peters (O. Handregan) goal 3:00 into the middle frame. Summerside replied 2:04 later to even the score, then the Flames took over. Wilson (Peters) added his second of the game from inside the slot, and with 1:03 to play in the period Peters (Hughes) found the back of the net on a nice deke.

2:48 into the game, Wilson (Crozier) roofed a shot from in tight to give the Flames an early lead. Much of the opening frame was played in the neutral zone, and shots were 3-2 in favor of the Ducks.

TASA scored their first goal 1:51 into the middle period, and added another at the 5:50 mark to take a 2-1 lead. They would take this lead into the intermission; shots were 16-8 for the Ducks after the period.

The Flames struggled to gain any momentum and get many chances in the final period, and TASA added an insurance marker with 4:13 to play. Final shots were 27-10 in favor of the Ducks. North River’s player of the game was Stead, and the most sportsmanlike player was Garett MacDougall.

The JR’s Pizza Flames were defeated Wednesday night by the Pownal Red Devils to the tune of 4-1. The game took place at the APM Centre in Cornwall. The loss dropped the Flames to 2-3-2 on the season.

After a slow start to the game, the Flames opened the scoring on a goal by Matt Lank (E. Handregan, Godfrey) with 4:37 to play in the opening frame.

The second period was one filled with penalties, and some strong killing by the Flames; including 3 blocked shots from defenseman Rowan Walsh in the period. Pownal scored later on just after a penalty expired, taking a 3-1 lead with 1:47 to play in the period. Shots after 2 frames were 11-10 in favor of Pownal.

The third period was much more of the same, with untimely penalties derailing any momentum the Flames could muster. Pownal added an insurance marker with 4:45 to play, taking the score to 4-1. Final shots were 17-15 for the Red Devils.

Tonight's Game Cancelled

Hi folks,

Just a note on tonight's game against the Western Aces that was scheduled to take place at the APM Centre. It is now CANCELLED, with a makeup date to be announced sometime in the future.

The team will use the ice time as a practice time, but please use your own discretion and judgment on whether or not to attend as the time approaches. If conditions permit, we will still have a little cake for Chace, as this will be his last session with the team before he heads back to Alberta.

Flames Defeated by Truro in Semi-finals

The Truro Bearcats emerged victorious over the North River JR's Pizza Flames in a semi-final game at the Grant Thornton Early Bird Tournament on Sunday morning. The final score of the game that took place at MacLauchlan Arena was 2-1.

The Bearcats dominated the play for the majority of the 1st period, but were blanked by Flames goaltender Cedric Stead who made 12 saves in the opening frame. North River was only able to direct 1 shot at the Truro goaltender.

The second period brought much of the same, and the Bearcats struck for two goals in a short span. The game became quite chippy following this, and that tone followed the rest of the way through. Through two periods, the Bearcats fired over 30 shots in the direction of Stead, while the Flames were once again held in check, having 3 total shots through 2 periods.

The 3rd period was more tightly contested, with the Flames beginning to keep the play in the Truro end, pressing for a goal to get back into the game. With 5:17 to play, a Rowan Walsh (Godfrey, Lank) point shot found its way through a maze of bodies to pull the Flames within one goal. After continuous pressure with an empty net, North River could simply not bury a tying goal. Final shots were approximately 45-8 for Truro. 

Rightfully so, Stead earned the Flames MVP award, while Walsh was the Most Sportsmanlike Player. The coaching staff would like to thank the players for their great effort throughout the tournament, and believe that lots of building blocks were created for future success in the rest of the season.

We are back on the ice tomorrow morning at 6:00am for practice, and the next game is a regular season contest against the league leading Western Aces. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:20pm on Wednesday, November 26 at the APM Centre in Cornwall. Players are asked to be at the rink by 6:20.

At the Simmons Arena, the Flames came out with the goal of advancing in the tournament and did just that. North River controlled the pace for the whole first period, outshooting the Aces by a 10-4 margin, with no goals coming from either side.

North River continued to dominate the game through the second period, however the Aces found the back of the net on a breakaway midway through the middle frame. Shots were 18-7 for the Flames, now facing a 1 goal defecit heading to the 3rd period.

It was do-or-die time for the Flames, and after a good start to the period, Zach Wilson (Peters, Crozier) evened the score, potting one from the top of the blue ice. Western mounted a late attack, but strong play from goaltender, and player of the game Ethan MacLean kept the Flames even, with the game ending in a tie.

The Abbies added to their lead 0:56 into the second period, giving the team a much needed insurance marker following the Flames attack.

The rest of the second period was evenly matched, however the Abbies added a third marker with 0:56 to play in the period, gaining a 3-1 advantage heading to the third period.

The third period began with the Flames dominating the flow of the game; Connor Gauthier (Jay, Peters) got a shot through from the point and cutting the Abbies lead to 3-2 with 9:47 to play in the 3rd period.

The Flames responded quickly, adding an insurance marker with 1:00 to play and held on for the victory.

Team captain Matt Lank (O. Handregan, Muttart) opened the scoring 7:09 into the game, beating Summerside’s goaltender with a well placed shot from just outside the slot. 1:22 later after some strong work down low, Ben Peters (Wilson) banged the puck across the line from the top of the blue paint, giving the Flames a 2 goal cushion. Shots in the first period favored North River 15-3.

2:02 into the second period, Zach Wilson (Crozier, Peters) snuck one past the goalie after more magic from behind the net by the trio, giving the Flames a much needed insurance marker. Spending most of the second period shorthanded, the Flames escaped with a 3-0 lead, shots after 2 were 19-7.

Summerside broke goaltender Cedric Stead’s shutout bid 3:20 into the 3rd period, and notched a second marker with 1:18 left on the clock.
