The Eels fought back from a 2-1 deficit to tie the game and in fact take the lead making it 3-2 but the Hitmen managed to get back on the scoreboard and tie it up once again bringing it to 3-3.
At the end of regulation the two teams went to a Five minute 5 on 5 OT but it remained all even at the end of the 5 minutes. Then the two squads went to a shoot out and the Hitmen best the Eels and won the game.
The Eels earned one point. The Eels return Friday to take on the Rush and Saturday the Northern Cyclones.
No doubt the boys had National jitters but they seemed to find themselves in period 3. We expect to have them back in order for Friday’s game
