Jr. Canadiens shut down Flyers
The Toronto Jr. Canadiens had the Don Mills Flyers number this past season and continued their success against their black and orange opponent on Wednesday, skating to a 4-0 win as Sami Molu stopped all 21 shots he faced.
Blueliner Daniil Chayka (2) opened the scoring after a scoreless first period, converting on the power play with an assist from Dylan Robinson at 5:25. Robinson (1) added a goal of his own just 28 seconds later as JRC was in the driver’s seat up 2-0.
Liam Kennedy (1) and Cole O’Hara (1) added third period tallies as the Jr. Canadiens improved to 1-0-1.
“I think our team can do big things and I think we showed that when we won the Marlboros Tournament at Christmas,” said Jr. Canadiens captain Shawn Spearing. “We spread the scoring around today and put in a full effort.
“We’ll need more of that in the next couple days against some good teams.”
The Jr. Canadiens outshot Don Mills 38-21, going 1-for-7 on the power play while holding the Flyers to 0-for-4.
JRC (1-0-1) is back in action against the Thunder Bay Kings (0-1-0) at 8:45pm while Don Mills (0-1-0) battles Barrie (0-0-1) at 9:15pm.
