Panthers knock off Bucs again

For the Peninsula Panthers and Nanaimo Buccaneers Friday night at the Panorama Recreation Centre was deja vu all over again

Panthers’ defenceman Cody Breitenstein (#3) winds up for a slapshot on Friday night in a game against the North Division Leading Nanaimo Buccaneers.

For the Peninsula Panthers and Nanaimo Buccaneers Friday night at the Panorama Recreation Centre was deja vu all over again.

During last week’s game on Nov. 15 the Panthers hosted the Buccaneers and came out on top with a 4-2 score.

This past Friday, the Buccaneers looked to avenge the loss from a week earlier but once again took a loss against the Panthers, 3-2.

Connor Logan was the lone Panther to put a point on the board in the first period of Friday’s game when he took a pass off the stick of Panthers’ rear guard Sean Buchanan and went in for the shot against Buccaneers’ goaltender Michael Herringer.

The second period was all Panthers with Brandon Story scoring in the first minute of play and Zack Smith finishing off with a goal in the last minute of play giving the Panthers a solid 3-0 lead after 40 minutes.

The third frame saw the Panthers play shorthanded after two penalties and the Buccaneers were finally able to get two goals on the board — but it was not enough to win the game.

Panthers Sean Buchanan, Cody Breitenstein and Stephen Heslop were named the game’s three stars.

The Panthers are back in action at home this Friday, Nov. 29 when they take on the Comox Valley Glacier Kings who are in for their final visit of the regular season. The puck is set to drop at 7:30 p.m.
