Elite Eels Blank Juniors 2-0

Fort Myers, FL: The (7-1-0-1) Florida Eels Elite team secured the weekend sweep on Sunday afternoon when they shut out the Tampa Bay Juniors 2-0 on Sunday afternoon at the Fort Myers Skatium.
After a scoreless first period of action, Ryan Goral put the Eels on top at the 8:19 marker of the 2nd period. With the Eels on the power play, Adam Burtzlaff sent a saucer pass from the near point to the low slot, where Goral batted the puck out of mid air and slid it between the wickets of Juniors goaltender Tyler Moschella.
With the clock ticking down to the final moments of the third period, Adam Burtzlaff broke loose from a defender in front of Tampa Bay’s empty net and stuffed the disc home as the buzzer sounded to solidify the 2-0 victory for the Eels. The lone assist on the final tally came from Easton Moore. Burtzlaff concluded the two-game series against the Juniors with a total of three goals and an assist.
Eels goalie Karlis Mezsargs earned the victory between the pipes to up his starting record to 1- 1-0-1 on the 2019-20 campaign. He stopped all 24 shots faced to grab his first shutout of the season.
The Eels now look forward to a rare weeknight tilt this Thursday night when they travel across town to battle the Florida Jr. Blades for the first time this season. Puck drop is slated for 9 PM at Hertz Arena in Estero.
