At the end of the day Port Huron went 4 for 11 on the power play and Johnstown went 0 for 4.
Port Huron's other goal came shorthanded.
The only Johnstown goal was scored by Collin Finkhouse, assisted by Shane Cuckovich in the second period, tying the game at one.
For only the second time in his career, Cody Gylling was involved in a fight after sticking up for his teammate, Shane Bednard, who took a punch to the side of the head, knocking off his helmet. The fight didn't last more than a few seconds as both players fell quickly to the ice.
Port Huron outshot Johnstown 34-23.
We'll have a new post tomorrow over on JuniorHockey.com that takes a deeper look at all the action from this weekend in our "Weekend WrapUp" with series stats and much more.
Johnstown couldn't get much going this game and will look to the NAHL Showcase to pick up their first win of the season.
Newcomer Trevor Hesuer racked up 20 penalty minutes in today's game, getting into two fights during the game.
The story of this game was the amount of penalties called against Johnstown, and the lack of offense Johnstown was able to generate while skating even strength.
Alex Okicki was in net for the loss. He made 29 save on 34 shots. Okicki now has a record of 0-2-0 with a GAA of 3.54 and a save percentage of .873.
Max Milosek was in net for the win. He made 22 saves on 23 shots. Milosek improves to 2-0-0 with a GAA of 1.00 and a save percentage of .957.
Just remember, it's only two games, and there's a ton of hockey to be played. Hopefully the team can pick up a couple of wins during the showcase and get on the right track. With that being said, things aren't going to get any easier as the Tomahawks' will face the Amarillo Bulls, the defending NAHL Robertson Cup Champions, in the first game of the Showcase.
Griffin Leach was injured during the game and did not return. He left the game after taking what appeared to be a stick to the head.
