Knights beat Generals, 4-1, in lone NAHL game on Thursday

October 12, 2018

Zach Stejskal made 42 saves in a 4-1 win on Thursday.

Northeast 1 @ Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 4 – Knights goalie Zach Stejskal made 42 saves to led his team to a 4-1 home win over the visiting Generals in the lone NAHL game on Thursday. Gabe Temple paced the Knights offense with two goals, which included the first goal of the game, as he struck just eight seconds into the attack, pouncing on a wrist shot in-between the circles to beat Generals’ goalie Marko Sturma. Less than two minutes later on the continuous major penalty power play, Jordan Strand took a center point shot with traffic in front. Jeffrey Bertrand was there and able to re-direct the puck into the net for a 2-0 Knights’ lead.The Generals countered just over a minute after the major penalty expired with a tic-tac-toe passing play between Connor Marshall, Brady Gaudette, and Trevor Smith, who finished the play by beating a sprawling Zach Stejskal at the side of the net to cut the lead in half. Northeast had some man advantages to try and tie the game afterwards, but a combination of solid penalty killers and the goalie Stejskal, who made 42 saves, were able to keep the Generals at bay. The visitors had three power plays in the third, as well as a six on five with an empty net. What felt like a “game ending goal” came up in the latter stages of the third. The Generals had just began their sixth power play, but a costly turnover at the attacking blue line led to Adrian Danchenko stealing, then scoring on a top shelf shorthanded marker. Gabe Temple would throw home the empty net goal for his second of the game to officially seal the deal. Sturma made 34 saves in the loss. Boxscore
