March 27, 2014, Victoria (ISN) – It was game 2 of a 5 game series for the Victoria Hockey League’s Sharks and Stingers on Thursday night at Naden Arena. Before the game commenced the Stingers led the series 1-0 but by shutting out the Sharks 6-0, they now lead by 2.

With Dave Brumby in net for the Sharks and Jason Stone in for the Stingers, the exciting and fast-paced game was underway. Even though the puck saw both ends of the ice, two of the Stingers’ six goals were scored in the first period. The first was by Clint Murgatroyd at 17:31, and the second scored shortly after by Kyle Wells at 15:07.

Then at 17:18 in the second, it was Greg Simpson’s turn to bury the puck. Again there was a lot of hard skating and many puck battles but Jason Stone had closed the door early, not allowing the Sharks in. Thomas Grant scored his first of two at 9:50, followed by Mike Simpson’s back-of-the-netter at 6:00. Then Thomas Grant sealed the deal with his second of the night, a short-hander at 3:36 ending the game and shutting out the Sharks.
