Game #7

Yost Ice Arena - Ann Arbor 1st 2nd 3rd Final
Novi FireCats    1 1   1 3
Ann Arbor Wolves 1      1 1   1 4
Tonight's contest between the Novi FireCats and Ann Arbor Wolves was a rematch of the first game of the season, as the FireCats looked to equal the success from the 7-6 victory in that game. Things did not get off to a good start for the FireCats, however, as they fell behind less than two minutes after the opening puck drop. It took a while, but the FireCats managed to even things up at a goal apiece midway through the period at 1-1, and the two teams would go into the first intermission with this score.

The FireCats got the jump in the second period, scoring less than 30 seconds in to grab a 2-1 lead. They did their best to hold that lead, but a goal just past the midway point by the Wolves knotted things up once again, and like the first period that score would stand until intermission.

It was the Wolves who broke through first in the third, scoring the go-ahead goal with just over 8 minutes remaining. Things were looking bleak as penalties started to pile up for the FireCats, but they didn't give up. They kept attacking, and finally scored to tie the game once more with two and half minutes to go. It was beginning to look like the game would end in a tie, but a somewhat controversial goal by the Wolves with 34 seconds remaining gave them the lead (I say controversial because it was pretty clear to everyone in the arena that the FireCats goalie had the puck covered with his glove, but the whistle didn't blow and the Wolves players kept poking at the puck, eventually knocking it free, and then into the net). With little time remaining, the FireCats weren't able to tie things up one last time, and wound up falling by a score of 4-3.
