BLAINE, MN- For the first time since the 2014-15 season, the Austin Bruins start off the regular season with a record of 3-0.
The Bruins would again, start off strong as and Dylan Gajewski would score 35 seconds into the game as Sutter Muzzatti and Carson Riddle would draw the assist on the 2nd goal of the season for Gajewski. That would be the lone tally after the first period and for most of the 2nd until the Bruins would find themselves on the Power Play. For the fourth time in three games, Jens Richards would score with the extra man and he would find the loose puck at the doorstep of Titans net-minder, Ben Charette, who would make the initial stop off a shot from Marian Haborak.
Special teams for the Bruin have been solid for Head Coach, Steve Howard as Austin would go 6/6 on the Penalty Kill which would also include a short-handed goal from Riddle at the 6:18 mark of the 3rd period. Niko Goich, who would get his first career NAHL start for the Bruins was shutting out the Titians’ offense until Rocco Testa-Basi would find a feed from Brandon Avenzov to give New Jersey their lone goal. Bruins would add one more Insurance goal on the PP as Braidan Simmons-Fischer would redirect a shot from Jack Malinski. Goich would collect his first career NAHL win for the Bruins, as he would stop 12 of the 13 shots he faced.
Austin wraps up their week at the NAHL Showcase tomorrow evening, as they will take on the Minnesota Magicians at 5:45 pm at the NSC Super Rink. All the action can be seen live on HockeyTV.
