BRAMPTON, Ontario — It wasn’t a win, but it was close, and it capped a very good weekend for the Adirondack Thunder.
Brampton won the shootout for a 2-1 victory over the Thunder on Sunday. Adirondack picked up a point to take five of a possible six points on the weekend, all on the road.
The Thunder still have five games left before they return from their month-long road trip, but they are tied for second in the ECHL’s North Division, two points behind first-place Manchester. They play this week in Wheeling, West Virginia (Tuesday), Norfolk, Virginia (Thursday) and Manchester, New Hampshire (Saturday).
Brampton scored a power-play goal in the first period, but that was the only goal surrendered during regulation and overtime by goalie Connor Ingram. He stopped 37 of 38 shots.
Adirondack tied the game 40 seconds into the third period on Ty Loney’s power-play goal. It was Loney’s ninth of the season and the fifth straight game in which he’s scored.
Brampton went on to win the shootout, 1-0, on Chris Leveille’s goal in the fourth round.
