Thunder Blank Hood Rats to take Game 1

Brett Gauthier earned his first career playoff shut out, as the Thunder blanked the Donovan Hood Rats 2-0 and take a 1-0 series lead. The game was tight throughout, with the plenty of scoring chances on both sides, but it was Kyle Rick and Vince Laferriere who were able to net one past the Hood Rats. The Thunder will look to close the series out, Thursday, July 25th at 9:00PM. Hood Rats need to win to keep their season alive, while the Thunder will look to punch their ticket to the D.J Hancock Memorial Cup Finals.
