continued "We talked about having a third period like our second period, but I think they were more concerned with generating offense than getting the puck," said DeRubertis. "We were taking off on offense before we took possession of the puck."
Guilderland/Mohonasen started strong when Andrew Mundweiler redirected John Dombrowski's shot past CBA goaltender Kyle Stockman for a power play goal less than two minutes into the first period. But the Brothers responded with goals from Sean Glennon and John Bassett to take a 2-1 lead. VanEpps later scored off a feed from Dean McMahon, and Bassett tallied with 36.4 seconds left in the first period to make the score 4-1.
Guilderland/Mohonasen went on the offensive to start the second period. The Dutch Warriors fired nine shots on goal in the first 3:30 of the frame after managing only three in the first period. On Guilderland/Mohonasen's 10th shot of the second period, Mundweiler scored to get his team within striking distance at 4-2. Ryan Ghizzoni closed the gap to 4-3 when he charged in and shot home a loose puck in front of the CBA goal, and Aaron Hull poked a loose rebound home with 9.2 seconds left to tie the game at 4.
Fraser changed goalies in the third period, with Dakota Smith taking over for Stockman. Smith made a pair of big saves including one on a Ghizzoni breakaway with 10:14 left in the frame. Less than four minutes later, VanEpps gave the Brothers the lead for good.
Cody Greenwald added an insurance goal with 3:19 left in regulation to seal CBA's second CDHSHL victory of the season.
Smith and Stockman combined for 20 saves, while Simmons stopped 31 shots for Guilderland/Mohonasen.
