The Boston Blazers came out Saturday night well knowing they needed a win to stay on par with the rest of the eastern conference. And with wins from Toronto, Rochester, and Buffalo, Boston stayed right on pace with the rest with their win over the Colorado Mammoth.
It was rather quiet early on, with the score 1-1 and not changing. But in the second the Blazers came out like a house of fire and showed the Mammoth a real Champions Cup Contender.
After scoring six goals, Chris Levis was pulled in favor of back up goaltender Matt King. King was acquired from Calgary before the season started.
King didn't do all too much better, as the Blazers scoring continued. Casey Powell became the all time leading scorer of American born players with his 244th career goal, while Damon Edwards and Nick Cotter each tagged two goals. Along with his goal, Powell put up four assists, and Dan Dawson had the same numbers.
Josh Sanderson broke out of his little funk with a hat trick on the night. "It was a great win, I didn't think we were at our best early but our defense and goaltending were great, obviously on our short-man," said Josh Sanderson. It was really good and we are happy with the win, but we have to get a lot better going into Minnesota. Obviously they are one of the best teams in the [Western Division] and we just have to keep getting better."
Jack Reid also scored his first career goal on a break away after leaving the penalty box, and Anthony Cosmo made 38 saves.
