Brodeur in the nets. The Baldwin Blazers countered with Tomas Vokoun
fresh off of his game #1 shutout. A tight checking opening period
resulted in very few shots after the first three line shifts. The
final shift saw a dramatic change in play. Both clubs opened up the
offense and the goalies were called upon to stop 3 goalie ratings
each. Vokoun handled the first two but Joe Sakic's power play goal
broke the ice on card #29. 1-0 Exodus after one. Coach Raymond
Bourque changed his line match-up strategy in period #2 and the move
paid dividends. Matching the Ovechkin, Sundin, Hejduk line against
the line of Savard, Kotalik, and LaPerriere provided a couple of
scoring opportunities and Milan Hejduk tickled the twine on card #19
of period #2. Assists were awarded to Sundin and Ovechkin. 2-0 Exodus
after two. The third period was played in rapid fire with Alexander
Ovechkin scoring on card #28 and Oli Jokinen disappointing the crowd
and Martin Brodeur by scoring on the 30th card of the period to break
the shutout. The Exodus hope the momentum gained from this win will
carry over for games 3 and 4. By splitting the first two games, the
Blazers have assumed home ice advantage.
Series tied 1-1.
Road orders to follow in a day or two.
