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 – named after the Top Gun character played by Tom Cruise – 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 “Talk to me Goose” before the fight.
