COLLINSON CUSTOM BUILDING presents KINGSTON FRONTENACS GAMEDAY REPORT vs FIRST CHANCE TO WIN SERIES COMES ON HOME ICE KINGSTON IS ONE WIN AWAY FROM THE CONFERENCE FINALS AFTER 7-1 WIN IN BARRIE After tying the series with back to back home wins, Kingston headed to Barrie for game five looking to make it three wins in a row. The Frontenacs dominated from the opening face-off. They would see six different goal scorers in a 7-1 road victory, the franchise’s first playoff win in Barrie. The win resulted in a 3-2 series lead with the series shifting back to Kingston for game six. Max Jones had made a difference in the physical aspect of the game since returning to the lineup but had yet to score a goal. That changed quickly in game five. He scored in the opening two minutes of the game to get Kingston rolling. Gabe Vilardi’s hot streak continued with his third consecutive two goal game. Robertson, Neumann, Day and Hotchkiss also lit the lamp in game five. Kingston’s power play has been a major part of their success in the playoffs, but they put up six goals before they had a chance on the power play in game five. Leo Lazarev had been a major reason that Barrie was in games or winning games in the early parts of the series. In game five he struggled, giving up 5 goals on 16 shots in the first period. That led to Kai Edmonds starting the second period in the Barrie net. When game five was out of reach, Barrie started to get chippy. They were making a point to try and get under the skin of the Frontenacs as they tried to make it known they were ready for game six. Game six is the first opportunity for either team to win the series. Kingston was the first team to win a road game in this series with their win in game five. The Frontenacs have closed out each of their last three playoff series wins on home ice. A win would send Kingston to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 1993. The Hamilton Bulldogs have already defeated the Niagara IceDogs and are awaiting the winner of this series. - KF BILLY KIMMERLY OFFICIAL GAMEDAY PROGRAM, VOLUME 45, 2018 5
