Forward Andrew Bellant had three points and goaltender Ryan Keane turned aside all 21 shots he faced to lead the visiting Philadelphia Rebels to a 4 – 0 victory the Johnstown Tomahawks. The win keeps the Rebels undefeated on the season with a 9 – 0 record.

It was the Tomahawks home opener and the team did it right with a spectacular indoor light show and then had National Hockey League Hall of Famer Paul Coffey drop the ceremonial first puck. It was a very festive atmosphere but Bellant quickly changed the good mood just 3:07 into the first period.

With the puck in their own zone, a Rebels defenseman dumped the puck up high into the neutral zone where it was picked up along the near side blueline by Johnstown’s defenseman Reagan Wortz.

After noticing the passing lanes being blocked up the middle, Woolley sent a pass back to Bellant at the circle. Bellant took a wrist shot that was saved by Stoever but Moore kept digging at the puck which ultimately squirted out to Peck who put it passed Stoever to give the Rebels a 1 – 0 lead.

A bench minor was called on the Rebels at 9:46 of the third period to negate a power play and have each side play four on four hockey. After a deep rebound off of Keane came out to Jimmy Glynn, Glynn would send a cross-ice pass up to Julian Makary, who carried the puck into the offensive zone on a 2 on 3 with Glynn. Makary dumped the puck down into the far side corner where Glynn picked it up and circled around the net.

Former Rebel Carter Dwyer helped his old team in the very beginning of the game when he took a slashing penalty at 4:41 into the opening period. The Rebels were having good puck movement on the powerplay but were unable to get any shots on net due to Johnstown’s defense. Then the puck went back to Diarmad DiMurro at the near side point. As he started to walk the blueline to his right he passed the puck back to Jensen Zerban, who promptly passed it downlow to Aaron Maguyon at the bottom of the faceoff circle. Maguyon found a wide open DiMurro at the top of the slot and he took a wrist shot that beat Tomahawks’ goalie Vinnie Purpurra blocker side to give the Rebels a 1 – 0 lead at 5:43 into the opening period.

A little over four minutes later Adam Peck would give the Rebels a 2 – 0. After Rebels goalie Eli Billing made a nice back-door pass save to keep the Tomahawks off the board, the rebound came out to Julian Makary who skated up the far side boards. Makary sent a cross-ice pass to a streaking Jimmy Glynn along the near side boards. As Glynn skated to the faceoff dot he passed the puck to Makary in the slot.
