Barrie has won five in a row and eight of their past 10. This game featured a rare goalie fight at the end of the second period. The Barrie Examiner has the story: "The bizarre brouhahas started when Kingston's Ethan Werek scored to cut Barrie's lead to 2-1 with a few seconds to go in the second period.
"Werek apparently got a little too close to [Barrie goaltender Mavric] Parks â€“ named after the Top Gun character played by Tom Cruise â€“ which only fuelled an already frustrated Parks, who went after his former teammate and landed a quick jab on the Kingston forward.
"A scramble ensued after the Parks-Werek dust-up, and that's when goalie Tyler Beskorowany -- and his six-foot-five, 204-pound frame -- saw an opportunity.
"'I had to,' said Beskorowany, who skated 185 feet down ice to find a willing six-foot, 183-pound dance partner. "Stuff happens. It's too bad the refs got in the way. I was having fun.'"
This is why we love junior hockey. And there is no truth to the rumor that Mavric closed his eyes, clenched his necklace, and said â€œTalk to me Gooseâ€ before the fight.
