CHARA VS. HAMHUIS (Part Two. First Half)

- Chara wastes no time in getting on the board as Jordan Harris cleared the zone and Dylan McCann did the rest as he skated in from the left side and tucked one past the goaltender Mitchell Traichevich to make it 1-0 for Chara.

- A good start for Jansen Harkins as he shrugs off a check or two and then passes back to Stephen Wack for a point-shot. The shot was stopped, but it was a smart play all around. Lots of physicality early on too.

- Carson Bolduc continues his strong play, but unfortunately for him he was robbed by Joshua Shank after a nice backhand move towards the goal. 1-0 Chara.

- Joshua Shank to the rescue again as this time he denies Brad Morrison from in close.

- We're tied. Brad Morrison wins a race for a loose puck behind the Chara net, and slides a perfect pass out front to the waiting Jagger Thomas. 1-1 with 20 minutes remaining in the first half.

- Brad Morrison strikes again! Morrison put home a rebound in front of Joshua Shank, and Team Hamhuis has a 2-1 lead.

- Carson  Bolduc has padded the lead for Team Hamhuis. He puts home a very nice pass from Jagger Thomas. Once again the likes of Bolduc and Morrison continue to impress. 3-1 Hamhuis leads with 13 minutes to go in the first half.

- Dylan McCann showing some great wheels as he gets a pass and races in alone. Mitchell Trachevich shuts the door to keep the score 3-1 for Hamhuis.

- First half has come to an end. What a period for Brad Morrison and Jagger Thomas. Each had two points, and were dominant at times for Team Hamhuis.
