Comeback falls short as Rebels now trail Knights two games to none in divisional final series.

Despite a valiant comeback, the Philadelphia Rebels were unable to overcome a three-goal deficit and ended up losing 5 – 4 to the visiting Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights. The Rebels now find themselves on the brink of elimination trailing two games to none in this best-of-five Robertson Cup divisional final series.

Rookie Jimmy Glynn scored his second goal of the playoffs to give the Rebels an early 1 – 0 lead.

While the Rebels were on a line change, forward Konur Peterson did an outstanding job to keep the puck moving behind the Knights net as he waited for help. After battling for the puck in the offensive zone’s far side corner, Peterson would skate around the Knights net and take a sharp angle shot that was saved by WBS goaltender Christian Stoever but the rebound came right out to Glynn who tucked in the rebound to give the Rebels the lead just 4:12 into the first period.

The Knights would even the score with 8:37 left in the period.

After the Knights won the draw deep inside the Rebels zone, the puck would go back to the near side point to Luke Robinson. The Knights defensemen took a shot that was saved by goaltender Eli Billing but the rebound went up high and bounced to the top of the faceoff circle to Billing’s right.  Blake Kryska would tap the puck up to Matt Kidney in the far side corner. Kidney sent a centering pass to Jake Olmstead who took a backhand shot that went wide of the net. Olmstead picked up his own rebound and started to skate around the Rebels with the puck on his backhand. Olmstead turned and took a shot on his forehand that beat Billing low, short side to tie the game at one.

Three minutes later the Knights would take the lead.

Defenseman Joseph Verkerke would bring the puck out of his own zone and make a centering pass to Lincoln Hatten. As soon as Hatten entered the offensive zone, he passed the puck over to Curtis Carlson on his left. As Carlson went to cut across the goalmouth, Billing went to poke check the puck. As soon as Billing’s stick touched the puck, the biscuit bounced backwards and hit the left post and went into the net to give the Knights a 2 – 1 lead with 5:41 left in the first period.

As time was winding down in the opening period, Brandon Stanley would score the first of his two goals on the night to tie the game at two.

After Alex Frye won the draw in the offensive zone, Stanley would send the puck back to Carson Moniz at the point. Moniz sent a bounce pass up along the near side boards and the puck went behind the Knights net where it was picked up by Stanley. As Stanley battled for the biscuit, he sent a short pass to Luke Radetic who tried to jam the puck past Stoever but the rebound came out to Frye. The Rebels forward swiped at it and Stoever made another save but he was unable to control the rebound and Stanley knocked it in to make it 2 – 2 with twenty-six seconds left in the first period.

The Knights then scored three, second period goals to take a commanding lead.

WBS defenseman Adrian Danchenko sent a clearing pass high off the glass that was picked up by Tyrone Bronte. The Knights forward would enter the offensive zone on a two-on-one with Jeffrey Bertrand. As Bronte gained the line, he passed the puck to Bertrand on his left. Bertrand took a wrist shot that went through Billing’s five hole to give the Knights a 3 – 2 lead with 10:04 to go in the period.

Two and a half minutes later the Knights would double their lead.

As Kryska went to clear the zone, the puck was intercepted by Kolby Vegara at the near side point. Vegara would turn to send the puck deeper into the Knights zone but it was picked off by Bronte. The WBS forward would enter the Rebels zone on a three-on-three. Bronte would take a shot that was blocked by Vegara but Bronte followed up on his own rebound and wristed the biscuit past Billing to give the Knights a 4 – 2 lead.

Shortly after the Knights scored their fourth goal Billing was replaced by Ryan Keane.

Olmstead would score his second goal of the night with one-minute left in the period to give the Knights a 5 – 2 lead.

Kidney would gain the line alone the far side blueline and take a shot that was blocked by Seth Bergeron as Moniz picked up the loose puck and send it up along the glass where it was knocked down by Michael Morrissey. The Knights forward passed the puck back to Kidney in the corner who immediately sent it to a breaking Olmstead who took a shot that beat Keane long side to give the Knights a three-goal lead going into the third.

Although the lead looked insurmountable going into the final period, the Rebels had other plans.

Bronte would clear the puck where it was picked up by Diarmad DiMurro as center ice. The Rebels defenseman would send it back to Stanley at his own blueline. Stanley then passed it up Radetic along the near side boards. Radetic would circle back and made a nice saucer pass to a breaking Stanley across center ice. As Stanley skated towards the top of the circle, he took a wrist shot that beat Stoever long side to cut the Knights lead to two with 4:05 into the third.

Aaron Maguyon would cut the Knights lead in half on a great individual effort.

After Kyrska picked up the puck in his own zone he went to clear the biscuit but it was intercepted by Ryan Patrick at the top of the near side faceoff circle. As the Rebels captain went to play it he was met by Luke Robinson. Patrick turned to shield the puck from Robinson and passed it down low to Maguyon. As Maguyon went to skate towards the goalmouth, he was inadvertently tripped by Stoever who stuck out his stick to prevent a pass out front. As Maguyon started to fall he turned to his left and slipped the puck through Stoever’s five hole to make it 5 – 4 with eight minutes left in the game.

Despite intense pressure for the remainder of the game, the Rebels were unable to tie it.

Billing and Keane combined to stop 24 of 29 shots while Stoever turned aside 30 of 34. Click here for the box score.

The series now shifts to the Revolution Ice Centre where the Rebels have to win two to bring the fifth and deciding game back to IceWorks on Friday, May 4.

Rebels blank Generals 5 – 0 and advance to division final series

The Philadelphia Rebels used a balanced scoring attack and relentless backchecking and forechecking en route to a 5 – 0 win over the visiting Northeast Generals in the fifth and deciding game of the Robertson Cup’s divisional semi-final series.

The Rebels now advance to the divisional final series against the winner of the New Jersey Titans and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights series that will be decided later today.

Brandon Stanley would give the Rebels an early 1 – 0 lead just 6:12 into the opening period. It ultimately would be the game winning goal.

After Northeast’s goalie David Fessenden stopped a backhanded shot from Eric Olson, the Generals’ Jeff Skinner picked up the rebound and went to clear the puck around the near side boards but it was intercepted by Bryant Gunn at the point. The Rebels defenseman took a wrist shot that Fessenden was unable to catch and Adam Peck tried to poke in the rebound but Fessenden made another pad save. The rebound, however, came right out to Stanley, who was positioned at the top of the crease, and he tapped in the loose puck behind Fessenden for his third goal of the playoffs.

The Rebels second goal was arguably one of the prettiest on the season.

After Jensen Zerban won the draw deep inside his own zone, the puck would come out to Aaron Maguyon who skated through center ice. As Maguyon got to the top of the far side faceoff circle, he stopped and made a drop pass to Zerban. The Air Force Academy commit sent a sensational cross-ice pass to a wide-open Carson Moniz in the slot and Moniz redirected the puck into open net to double the Rebels lead at 8:33 of the second period.

With Northeast pressuring in the Rebels zone, Peck would clear the puck into center ice where it was picked up by the Generals’ Colin Bilek. As the West Point commit went to pass the puck over to his defensive partner Ryan Rowland on this right, it was intercepted by Stanley who carried the puck into the near side corner. After battling for the biscuit, Stanley would send a short pass up to Peck along the boards. Peck would look to his left and he found an open Jimmy Glynn in the slot. Glynn would move to his left and backhanded the puck up high and past Fessenden into the net to give the Rebels a 3 – 0 lead with 7:55 remaining in the game.

Eighteen seconds later, the Generals’ Matthew Wiesner was called for head contact and received a game misconduct which resulted in a five-minute powerplay for the Rebels.

Slightly less then two minutes later, Zerban would score his third goal of the playoffs.

Moniz was behind his own red line and he sent a long outlet pass to Stanley along the near side boards. As Stanley gained the offensive zone line, he skated towards the net on a two-on-one with Maguyon. Stanley went to pass it over to Maguyon but Rowland blocked it with his stick. The puck would bounce off Rowland’s blade and came right out to a trailing Zerban who wristed it by Fessenden to give the Rebels a 4 – 0 lead.

Gunn would score an empty netter with twenty-four seconds remaining to make it a 5 – 0 game.

Rebels goalie Ryan Keane, who stood tall throughout the game, stopped all nineteen shots he faced while Fessenden turned aside 28 of 32. Click here for the box score.

The Rebels now will face the game five winner between the Titans and the Knights, which will be played later today at 5:00pm at Middletown’s Ice World. The Rebels will be the home team for the divisional final series which will begin either Thursday, April 26 or Friday, April 27.

The Generals scored two, first period goals and road the coattails of a thirty-five save performance by goaltender David Fessenden, who made several grade A saves to keep the Generals in the game.

Northeast got on the board first just 3:55 into the opening period on Brady Gaudette’s first goal of the playoffs.

After Rebels goalie Ryan Keane made a tough, left-pad save the rebound went into the far side corner where it was picked up by Gaudette. The Braintree, MA native would send the puck to Mike Egan in the slot, who in turn passed the biscuit back to Luke Perunovich at the point. Perunovich would circle towards the center of the blue line and take a shot that was saved by Keane but Gaudette was to goalie’s right and he tucked in the rebound to make it a 1 – 0 game.

The Generals would make it 2 – 0 with 5:09 remaining in the first period.

Just prior to the Generals taking a two-goal lead, Rebels forward Brandon Stanley had a chance to tie the game but couldn’t control a rolling puck and the shot went wide of the net.

Colin McCabe would pick up the loose puck along the far side boards and skate back into his own zone and then head up along the near side boards. After gaining the line, he sent a seem pass over to Brendan White on his left, and McCabe took a wrist shot that beat Keane blocker side to double the Generals lead.

The Rebels would cut the Generals lead in half just 2:08 into the second period.

Ryan Patrick would pick up the loose puck along the far side boards and backhand it over to Jensen Zerban on his left. As Zerban entered the Generals zone, he took a low, far-side shot that Fessenden had to make a pad save but the rebound came right out to Aaron Maguyon who tucked the loose puck into the back of the net for his first goal in the series.

With 7:11 left in the game, Stanley was called for high-sticking to give the Generals the extra attacker. Twenty-two seconds later the Generals would double their lead again.
