Gabriel Carriere posted a shutout, stopping all 14 of the Smiths Falls Bears shots throughout the game. The Kanata Lasers took the lead early in the first on a goal from Ryan Bunka and never looked back.
Ryan Bunka chipped in with 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist) and Chad Merrell had no trouble finding the scoresheet, adding 2 points (1 goal, 1 assist).
During the first period, Bunka opened the scoring for Kanata with what turned out to be the game winning goal at 1:38 with helpers from teammates Merrell and Nocita. Merrell put in a goal at 15:04 with helpers from his linemates, Nocita and Poeze.
During the second, Ulanov netted a goal at 17:48 with assists from Brochu and Bunka.
Kanata’s victory was in no doubt helped out by Carriere’s shutout, as he stopped all 14 of the shots he faced. Carriere’s counterpart, Dobson, also had a big night, managing to stop 34 of 37, but ultimately fell short.
This win brings the Kanata Lasers’ record to (26-19-8-1).
