Shenendehowa skates past Shaker/Colonie

Hebert was pulled after that goal in favor of sophomore Jim Lanne. Lanne was scored on 14 seconds later on a weak shot by Scott Brayden that trickled in, making it 5-1.

"They (the goalies) weren't focused tonight. It's almost like they were thinking too much about the game and getting to pumped up about it," Hudak said.

At 12:05 of the second, Hitchko picked up the hat trick after placing a hard wrist shot on net from just inside the blue line that found its way past Lanne to make it 7-1.

O'Connell scored 30 seconds later for S/C after he put a shot over the glove of Mellow to make it 7-2.

Shen forward Andy Cantiello was called for tripping with 1:47 left in the second and Bryan Hunter completed a hat trick after tallying a short-handed goal on a breakaway, making it 8-2.

The Jets (5-11-3, 4-7-2) went back to Hebert for the third period and he made four saves on five shots. Lanne made four saves on eight shots in one period of work.

Shen made it 9-2 at 9:02 of the third after a slap shot from the point by Brayden made its way through traffic in front of the net past Hebert.

Shen replaced Mellow with Jared Frazer after the goal.

O'Connell completed his hat trick with 3:15 left in the third after firing a slap shot from the blue line past Frazer to make it 9-3.

"We played hard both yesterday (an 8-2 win at Saratoga) and tonight, we've got a refreshing attitude about ourselves lately and it's nice. Their work ethic seems to be right on where we want it to be," de la Rocha said.

Shen visits CBA on Friday and Shaker/Colonie plays at Bethlehem on Saturday.""
