CIS No. 3 Axemen lose first game against No. 4 UNB
UNB erased two, one-goal deficits – both times from Tom Nesbitt – and held on to a 5-3 win in front of a sold-out Aitken University Centre on South Side Elementary School night.
Cam Critchlow scored the game winner midway through the third period, tailing a Marc-Antoine Desnoyers breakaway and netting the rebound, and captain Chris Culligan sealed the win with his 50th career goal – a shorthanded, top corner wrist shot over Evan Mosher’s shoulder.
