Every single skater had a point in Adelaide’s dominating 9-1 win over the Brisbane Rampage on Friday night. That’s fifteen different players with points and seven different players with goals.
Amazingly, no player had more than two points.
“An amazing statistical anomaly,” said Eric Balnar on the broadcast.
With second place on the line, there was everything to play for. Adelaide came out flying in the first period.
Just four minutes into the first period, Yoanne Levesque opened the scoring with captain Corstens getting the assist.
The Avalanche used their speed and dominated the attacking zone early and was quick to clear the puck whenever it was in their defensive zone.
Smooth skating Jamie Woodman got a point shot goal past Nick Novysedlak on Adelaide’s next power play chance a few minutes later.
Only 13 minutes into the game, the Avalanche had already scored three goals but the Rampage appeared to gather momentum when Harley Anderson scored during a Brisbane power play.
Just 15 seconds later, Noah Maley had a shot tip from a pass made by Andrew Chen.
The first period ended with Adelaide – who has struggled scoring all season – putting five past the Rampage and outshooting the home side 23-7.
The second period consisted of both goalies, Nick Novysedlak for the Rampage and Jeremy Friederich for the Avalanche making tough saves.
Novysedlak faced 22 shots during the second period but only let one in when Adelaide’s Nathaniel Benson, scored a goal with eight minutes left to make it a 6-1 game.
After a 60-minute-game, Nick Novysedlack faced 64 shots and Jeremy Friederich faced 18 shots.
