Back on Track
This is a rematch of opening night between AsiaXpat and Bravo. The first time, Asiaxpat easily beat Bravo 7-4, so Bravo was looking to get a little revenge. Unfortunately for Bravo, they were missing top scorer Jason Yip and the game did not start well for them. Hamish Pang (also on a multi-game scoring streak) stole a puck deep in Bravo's zone and scored just 58 seconds into the game. Even before Bravo was able to get all their players on the bench!

Bravo seemed to gain their composure back with 2 quick goals from Donald Chan and Tim Tsui (LPP) and get the momentum back. But late in the period, Eric Pang make a few patented dekes and skated by 3 Bravo defenders before cutting along the goal line and roofing a beautiful short side top corner goal by Antony Chan's ears to even the score.

The second was a similar pace with Art Tam finishing a nice play from So Fuk Hing and Tim Tsui to regain the lead. Bravo had a great chance to get some insurance as Leon Mo found Art Tam on a breakaway only to have Lui use his head to knock away the shot.

AsiaXpat’s special teams then took over. Starting with Eric Pang’s second on a power play, followed shortly by Danny Chui (LPP) firing a shorthanded goal by Chan to regain the lead. A lead they would not relinquish.

AsiaXpat got 2 more in the 3rd, Jimmy Lee, and Danny Chiu (LPP) with his second on the night, before Leon Mo scored with 52 seconds left to round out the scoring.

Jerome Lui stopped 17 for the win while Antony Chan stopped 21.

The Three Stars:
1. Eric Pang (AsiaXpat)
2. Danny Chiu (LPP) (AsiaXpat)
3. Art Tam (Bravo)

Solid Team Effort
This proved to be a very tight checking game between CHG and InetAsia. InetAsia came in looking to get their 2nd win, while CHG looked to bounce back from a drubbing last week. Whatever GM Alex Gautier said to the team seemed to work. CHG came out strong and essentially smothered Inet's attacks all evening limiting them to 13 shots all game.

While on the other end, CHG's forwards were opportunistic, first with Theo Wong capitalizing on the power play, while Hugo Fan and Reston Ko each had a goal in the 2nd and 3rd periods respectively to round out the scoring.

Edward Lee earned the win and a shutout with 13 saves, while Arthur Chan had a solid effort with 18 saves.

The Three Stars:
1. Edward Lee (China Hockey Group)
2. Hugo Fan (China Hockey Group)
3. Theo Wong (China Hockey Group)

Lady Luck wearing green tonight
HoiHoi was coming off a 2-game win streak and Taboo was hoping to continue their winning ways without 2 of their top players, Stuart Chan and Grant Phillips.

A quick start 40 seconds in on a goal by Michael Liu put HoiHoi up 1-0. It wasn’t unti/ 1/2 way through the period and HoiHoi's 3rd consecutive penalty, did Taboo's Donald Chow finish a broken play to beat Marco Au (LPP) on the powerplay. HoiHoi continued to take penalties and gifting powerplay opportunities to Taboo, but they were unable to convert golden scoring opportunities as Au looked like a brick wall to keep HoiHoi in the game. Jim Liu was able to catch Taboo off guard with an unassisted tally with just 36 seconds remaining in the first to regain the lead for HoiHoi.

In the 2nd, HoiHoi continued the penalty parade, but Au and the team continued to thwart Taboo's shooters and instead, Jason Yee was able to score a short-handed goal to give HoiHoi a 3-1 lead entering the 3rd.

In the 3rd period - Taboo continued to control he zone play and was finally rewarded with goals from Leon Mo (LPP) and Kenny Chiu to tie it up midway in the 3rd. With 2 minutes remaining, Michael Liu was able to work his way into the low slot and fire a shot using the defenseman as a screen past Rendell giving HoiHoi the lead once again.

Taboo pressed and with the goalie pulled forced HoiHoi to take 2 more penalties giving them almost 2 full minutes with a 6 on 3. As the crowd watched Taboo have full control, they generated at least 5 golden scoring opportunities but were met by acrobatic saves from Au, or Taboo players were unable to finish into the open net to tie the game.

HoiHoi breathed a sign of relieve at the buzzer and walked away with their 3rd win in a row.

Marco Au stopped 20 for the win, while Kirsten Rendell stopped 12.

The Three Stars:
1. Marco Au (LPP) (HoiHoi)
2. Michael Liu (HoiHoi)
3. Jason Yee (HoiHoi)
