Looks like the Chiefs may get things cooking this month.
Morgan Cey stopped 34 of 35 shots faced for the win. Veteran Randy Rowe paved the way offensively with 2 goals and 1 assist. Jean Desrochers added 2 assists and the other Chiefs goals were scored by Andrew Martens and Brandon Elliot (or whatever alien has taken over his body and made him into a goal scorer lately). Dimitri Tarabrin, Maxime Boisclair, Ryan Gibbons and John Adams had individual helpers.

I'm working with the Salisbury School athletic department to get quicker recaps on their games, so hopefully I can keep track of Kevin a little faster and easier.
In 18 games this season Kevin has recorded 6 assists, has a +12 rating and 6 PIM.
His Crimson Knights (13-3-2, 5-3-1 Founders League) are unbeaten in their last seven games and sit 3rd in the Founders League standings.
Their next game is Feb. 7 against Taft School a team they drew to a 0-0 tie back on Jan. 8.
UMASS continued to play well down the stretch knocking off #13 Boston College 5-3. John Wessbecker was scoreless and +1 in the game. The Minutemen (13-8-4, 10-6-2) are now unbeaten in their last 4 and sit in 5th in the HEast one point ahead of #9 Maine.
#9 Maine kept pace with the rest of the league beating the new #1 ranked New Hampshire 4-2. Mike Lundin was scoreless and even in the game. The Black Bears (17-7-2, 10-7-1) sit 6th in the HEast one point behind UMASS and three ahead of Northeastern. New Hampshire took over the top ranking in both polls from Minnesota who had held the top spot for most of the year. Minnesota was swept by North Dakota last weekend and fell to #3.
Art Femenella was scoreless and even in #14 Vermont's 3-2 win over Providence. The Catamounts (15-8-4, 10-4-4) are now unbeaten in seven games and sit 3rd in the HEast three points behind Boston University and one point ahead of Boston College.
Dusty Collins was scoreless and finished even with 2 PIM in Northern Michigan's 1-0 shutout win over Lake Superior. The Wildcat's (12-17-2, 9-13-1) broke a three game losing streak with the win.
Andreas Holmqvist had a power play assist today, but Linkopings still could not shake out of its tailspin losing 3-2 in overtime to MODO. Former Springfield Falcons forward Zdenek Blatny had a shorthanded goal in the match for MODO. Holmqvist, who has been steady as a rock offensively for over a month now, now has 5 goals and 22 points in 43 games this year. Unfortunately, due to Linkopings' recent struggles, his +/- has now dipped to -1 for the season.
