Canadians Stay Perfect

The Carleton Place Canadians became the first club to start the RBC Cup tournament with back-to-back shutouts since the Calgary Canucks did so back in 1995.  The Canadians shut out the host Portage Terriers 3-0 Sunday night, handing the Terriers their fist shut out loss since the 2014 playoffs when they fell 4-0 to the Steinbach Pistons.  The Terriers were also limited to just 13 shots on the night as they could only muster a total of 6 in the final two periods.

Carleton Place received goals from Owen Stewart, Stephen Baylis, and Bryce Van Horn while goaltender Guillaume Therien finished with 13 saves for the shutout victory.

Goaltender Justin Laforest finished the night making 15 saves on 18 shots as Portage was also able to limit the Canadians shot count as well but unfortunately could not get their offense rolling.

The Canadians are back in action Tuesday May 12th at 3pm when they square off against the BCHL champion Penticton Vees.

In Other Action

The Penticton Vees also picked up a shut out victory on Sunday as they pulled out a 4-0 victory over the SJHL champion Melfort Mustangs.  The Vees are now 1-1-0 in the tournament while the Mustangs are 0-1-0.

Melfort takes part in the only game Monday as they take on the NOJHL champion Soo Thunderbirds who are also winless thus far in the tournament after falling to Carleton Place 4-0 in their opening game.
