Boston Blazers Beat Edmonton, 10-7 in Home Opener (1/15/11)
by Matt Noonan
BOSTON, MA – Boston Blazers forward Nick Cotter clearly kept the Edmonton Rush on their toes for the entire four quarters, as he finished the evening with three goals and led his squad to a 10-7 victory during the teams home opener at the T.D. Garden.
Cotter scored two goals during the first half and recorded a third during the fourth quarter, which solidified the win for the Blazers.
Besides Cotter’s epic performance, the Blazers also watched Casey Powell find the back of the net twice to record two goals during both the first and second half of regulation.
Ryan Hotaling, Dan Dawson, Geoff McNulty and Josh Sanderson each added one goal of their own too during the teams second win of the season.
Goaltender Anthony Cosmo allowed only seven goals through 60-minutes, but continuously kept the Blazers in contention to steal multiple leads from the Rush and eventually the game.
Blazers head coach Matt Sawyer seemed rather satisfied after the win as Boston advanced to (2-0) on the season. They will next play Friday January 21 against the Toronto Rock at 7:30pm eastern.
