Sage Broda posted a shutout, stopping all 26 of the Long Beach Sharks shots throughout the game. The L/A Nordiques took the lead early in the first on a goal from Clifford Ogle and never looked back.
Caleb Labrie had a busy night with 3 points (2 goals, 1 assist) and Colby Audette delivered for his team with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist).
In the first, Ogle opened the scoring for L/A with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 1:20 with helpers from Labrie and Ouellette. Colclough put in a goal at 15:08 with a helper from defenseman Mccormick.
During the second, Labrie netted a goal at 7:42 with assists from Ouellette and Ogle. Berry deposited a goal at 11:41 with assists from Ouellette and Colclough. Ventura scored a goal at 16:10 with helpers from his teammates Mullen and Chauvin. Labrie put in a goal at 19:15 with an assist from fellow Nordiques forward Audette.
During the third period, Audette netted a goal at 5:28 with helpers from Tehan and O’keefe.
L/A’S victory was in no doubt helped out by Broda’s shutout, as he stopped all 26 of the shots he faced. Broda’s counterpart, Cortez, also had a big night, managing to stop 46 of 53, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the L/A Nordiques’ record to (25-9-2-1).
