Jayson Krauthammer stole the spotlight in his seventh start of the season, but the Knights netminder couldn’t come away with the win

The Chiefs came out firing on all cylinders, but Jayson Krauthammer stonewalled them at every turn. The KPC netminder kept the game scoreless after making a beautiful glove save on a shot by Anthony Pepe in the first period. Luke LaFata nearly gave the Chiefs a one goal lead with 4:20 remaining in the period, but Krauthammer slid across his crease to make the stop. The game was scoreless after fifteen minutes.

At the start of the second stanza, Anthony Pepe slipped past the Knights defense and received a pass from Thomas Ivers. Pepe came in 1 on 0, but was denied by Krauthammer. The Knights looked to fire back, but couldn’t find the back of the net. Jesse Lemza came in 2 on 1 and threaded the needle on a pass to Tyler Granelli, but Brody Dickson made a sprawling save to keep the game deadlocked at 0-0. Michael DeSaro fired a shot that glanced off the glove of Dickson, but KPC couldn’t cash in on the rebound. A slashing minor assessed to John Coyle put EI on the power play to start the third frame. At the end of the second period, the score remained 0-0.

After the Knights killed off the Coyle minor, Alex Carino was called for roughing. EI killed off the penalty. KPC Captain Stefan Hludzinski committed two minor penalties in the third period, but EI couldn’t score on the power play.. The Chiefs and Knights would trade chances throughout the third period. Bryan Slattery tested Krauthammer with a slap shot from the blue line, but the KPC netminder made a beauty of a glove save. Ronald Kemly fired back with a quick wrist shot on the other end that was stopped by Dickson. After forty-five minutes of regulation, the game was heading to overtime.

With 2:30 remaining in overtime, Anthony Pepe won the defensive zone draw forward. Thomas Ivers skated into it, but couldn’t clear the zone. Pepe overpowered two defenders to force the turnover and carry the puck up ice. After crossing across into the KPC defensive zone, Pepe threaded the needle on a beautiful feed to Ivers who beat a sliding Krauthammer top shelf to win the game.
