Ridge Meadows Juvenile A1 'Moose' were shut out and forced to a 3rd and deciding playoff game after a 2-0 loss to Burnaby Winter Club Bruins.
The Moose who went into the game 2 points ahead in the 4 point series fell quickly behind the eight ball in the first period. #1 Brenden Vogt, net minder for the Moose was working at full speed keeping shot after shot out of the Ridge Meadow net.
A flurry of costly penalties plagued the Moose during the entirety of the game. The first goal was scored on a four on four, while the second goal a full strength goal. Burnaby Winter Club was aggressive on the ice, keeping Ridge Meadows from tying the game.
With the series now tied at 2 points a piece, the series returns to Burnaby on Wednesday February 29th. Puck drops at 9:45pm at the Burnaby Winter Club, which is located 4990 Canada Way in Burnaby.
