10/4 Recap: Adam takes advantage

On Sunday, Luke Adam had a pair of power play goals including the overtime winner to rally Cape Breton past Rimouski, 5-4. The game's #1 star, Adam scored his third of the year in the second period before again striking in the first minute of overtime. The 6'2, 203-pound center also had a power play assist in the win to take over the Eagles' scoring lead with eight points (4+4). Marek Zagrapan was even in 16:26 of work as Severstal lost to Minsk, 2-1. Severstal now sits in last place in the KHL's Western Conference. In Burlington, Drew MacKenzie was even with three shots on goal as Vermont lost their exhibition opener to CIS power University of New Brunswick, 3-2 in overtime. Cape Breton's #1 center last season, Chris Culligan, had a goal for the Reds. Brad Eidsness stopped 11 of 12 shots in over a period-and-a-half, and Corey Fienhage was +1 as North Dakota cruised past Manitoba, 7-1. Eidsness was poised in his first tune-up, while the rusty Fienhage was a little more tentative in his first game action since December 6th. Wrapping up the weekend, Mark Adams notched his first USHL point on Saturday, an assist, as Chicago stomped Team USA, 10-5. The Providence commit was also called for two roughing minors in the lopsided win. The Steel helped welcome the national program to the Jr "A" ranks, outscoring them 15-6 while earning the weekend victories.
