Austin Bianchi (4) started the Hitmen comeback digging out a rebound in the crease and lifting it over the goalie to tie the game at two. Defenseman and call up from the 18U team Walt Keiper (1) blasted a point shot over the glove hand side taking a 3-2 lead and sending the Hitmen bench into a frenzy. Chase Wiedemann scored his first of the year and sealed the win for the weekend sweep. After two quick first period goals, Starter Nick Modica shut the door making 34 saves in the victory and is now 7-2.
The Hitmen travel to play the South Shore Kings in a two-game series this weekend. The Hitmen currently sit in 2nd place in the USPHL North Standings and sit 4 points ahead of the Kings. The two teams have not yet faced each other this season.
