Jaeger magnificent, McLeod settles contest in first game back
No matter how you look at it, this was one of the best defensive battles of the season with two stellar performances in net. Thankfully, the Texas Brahmas came out on top with a 1-0 shootout victory over the Corpus Christi Ice Rays tonight at the NYTEX Sports Centre.
The Brahmas went zero for five on the power play. Corpus Christi went zero for nine. The Brahmas were assessed 18 minutes on nine infractions; the Ice Rays received 10 minutes on five infractions.
The 3rd Star of the game went to Kevin Nastiuk for his performance in goal tonight. The 2nd Star was awarded to Brett Jaeger for the same reason and the 1st Star went to Kevin McLeod, who scored the game-winning goal.
