Team Red 2 - Team White 3 (shootout)
Junior Summer Development Camp
CALGARY – The final intrasquad game at the National Junior Development Camp at Father David Bauer Arena was perhaps the best of the week. Team Red was looking for a first win, while Team White was hoping for a sweep of the three-game series.
Jonathan Bernier (Laval, QC/Lewiston, QMJHL) got the nod in net for Team Red while Carey Price (Anahim Lake, BC/Tri-City, WHL) started for Team White.
Team Red opened the scoring for the first time in the three-game series as forward Claude Giroux (Ottawa, ON/Gatineau, QMJHL) showed incredible patience in beating Price low on the stick side.
It only took five minutes for Team White to respond as Chris Stewart (Scarborough, ON/Kingston, OHL) stole a puck at his own blue line and went in all alone, sliding the puck by Bernier to even things up at 1-1.
A minute and a half later, defenseman Patrick McNeill (Strathroy, ON/Saginaw, OHL) scored his third goal in as many games to give Team Red a 2-1 lead heading into the second period.
Team Red goaltender Bernier finished with 10 saves before being replaced by Tyler Plante (Brandon, MB/Brandon, WHL), while Price finished with four saves for Team White before Jean-Philippe Levasseur (Victoriaville, QC/ Rouyn-Noranda, QMJHL) took over at the 10 minute mark of the second period.
Calgary Flames’ draft pick Daniel Ryder (Bonavista, NL/Peterborough, OHL) thrilled the home town crowd as he scored for Team White to tie the game up at 2-2 for the only goal of the second period.
With a scoreless third period, and the game tied at 2-2, the teams went to a five player shoot-out.
Cogliano, Toews, Marchand, and Little all scored for Team White while Giroux and McArdle tallied for Team Red.
Team White won in the shoot-out to give them a clean three game sweep for the series.
Levasseur finished with 15 saves for Team White registering the victory, while Plante made 11 saves in net for Team Red.
