When the puck dropped in game two on Friday night, you could feel the opposing energy of the Sabres eager to claim the title and the Lions equally eager to defeat them. The first period saw a single goal for both teams, and the hard-fought second was scoreless. As the clock ticked down in the third, the Sabres picked up the pressure to earn several scoring chances, each denied by the quick stick and gloves of the Lions’ goaltender. In overtime, the momentum shifted long enough for the Lions’ to pounce on the puck and make a quick play to secure a 2-1 OT victory.
