Birds, Beavers are even

March 16, 2014

Soo Thunderbirds have evened their first-round, best-of-seven, Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League playoff series with Blind River Beavers.

But it wasn’t easy.

The top-seeded Thunderbirds withstood two late third-period goals from the eighth-ranked Beavers for a narrow 3-2 triumph.

The score flattered the home-ice Beavers who were outshot by a 50-19 margin.

The best-of-seven series is now tied at 1-1 heading into Game 3 on Thursday night at the Soo’s Essar Centre.

What you think about “Birds, Beavers are even”

  1. BEAVERS- be proud of your selves
    Blind River Beavers be PROUD of yourselves for
    your game efforts yesterday.
    You gave the fans the game they deserved to watch
    Yesterday you didn’t win the game,
    but you sure as hell had the T-Birds in a flutter
    if the clock hadn’t run down I am sure you
    would have tied the game and maybe won it
    You all played an excellent game
    I am so proud of everyone of you for your efforts
    and not falling into the T-Birds way of hockey.
    Good luck Thursday.
    We will be there to cheer you on.
