Smokies win O/T thriller against Langley on Saturday at Cominco Arena
Sunday, October 19, 2014 - Submitted by Trail Smoke Eaters

The Trail Smoke Eaters scored 2:44 into the the first overtime to defeat the Langley Rivermen 3-2 on Saturday evening at the Cominco Arena.  Kienen Scott scored his first goal of the season and it proved to be a huge one as he potted the game winner on a wild scramble in front of the Langley net.  Assisting on the goal was Scott Davidson and Bryan Basilico.  The goal capped off one of the most entertaining games played at the Cominco Arena for a long time.

Langley opened the scoring at 6:43 of the first period on a goal by Gage Torrel with assists going to Marcus Vela and Dante Hahn.  Charilie Zuccarini tied the game on an unassisted goal at 3:57 of the second period.

At 2:08 of the third period Trail went ahead 2-1 on a power play goal by Harlan Orr assisted on by Charlie Zuccarini and Jake Lucchini.  Just 37 seconds later Langley tied the game on an unassisted goal by Dante Hahn.  That set the stage for Kienan Scott's heroics, scoring the overtime winner.

Midway through the first period Jacob Zeleznikar of Langley went akwardly into the boards and remained on the ice for 45 minutes  while being attended to by both team trainers and paramedics.  Jacob was taken to Trail Regional  Hospital by ambulance and underwent surgery Sunday morning.  He suffered a broken femur.  The Trail Smoke Eater organization wishes Jacob all the best and good luck with his recovery.

Adam Todd was selected 1st Star of the game for his 36 saves in the Trail net. Kienan Scott was named 2nd Star and Charlie Zuccarini was named 3rd star.  Honourable mention goes to Langley's Dante Hahn who had a strong game scoring 1 goal and assisting on the other.

Trail's next home game is this Wednesday Oct. 22 at the Cominco Arena vs the Salmon Arm Silverbacks.  

Fans will be treated to "Wicked Wednesday" with a $5.00 admission charge across the board as well as $3.00 specials at all concession outlets.

In addition, the Smoke Eaters will be raffling off a used car at the game. The car was donated by AM Ford.  Tickets are $3.00/each or 4 for $10.  The draw will be held during the game.  You must buy the raffle tickets at the game and must be in attendence to win the car.
