The score of tonight's game doesn't really tell the story of how the Tomahawks played. Most of the night Johnstown was in charge of the game and held many of the scoring chances. That being said, because of a few soft goals, Johnstown sees themselves on the wrong side of the score.
Colin DeAugustine started the game in net for Johnstown. In his last two starts he was able to turn away 46 of 47 shots faced against him. Tonight, he could only stop 7 of 10 shots which lead to him being pulled in favor of Alex Okicki.
Okicki held the fort for most of the game and kept Johnstown within striking distance, facing 30 shots and making 28 saves.
Jordan Watt scored on the power play with the assist going to Zach Wallace in the second period.
The top line for Johnstown scored another goal for the Tomahawks to make the game 4-2. It was a Brandon Reinholz slap shot assisted by Joe Drabin and Matt Meier. That's as close as the Tomahawks would get to tying the game.
Each team went 1 for 3 on the power play.
