Bulldogs overcome 4 goal deficit for 4-4 tie.

The Siun Devils raced out to a 4-0 lead, but the short bench could not hold it. The red Bulldogs got a pair of goals from Jon Morin as he threw the Dogs on his back to salvage a 4-4 tie.

Perhaps being in first place all season has the gold Sun Devils a little complacent.

The newest Devil John Ragucci had a pair of goals, while Onello and Danaher had single tallies as the Sun Devils were cruising with about 6 minutes to play in the 2nd period.

Thoughts turned from hockey to the holidays on the gold bench, that's how happy they all were.

The Bulldogs though quietly chipped away at the four goal lead. Jon Morin and Marc Teal found the net before the 2nd period ended. Then in the third, the pattern repeated itself, as both Morin and Teal scored again to tie it at 4-4.

Rob Chiulli was on the ice for all 8 goals in his throwback white jersey.

OT came and went without a goal, which was a moral victory for the Sun Devils who "hung on" for the tie after blowing a 4 goal lead.

"We're like the St. Louis Rams," said Tony Onello. "We have a strong first half, then fall apart like a house of cards."

The tie now drops them out of sole possession of first place, and into a tie with the surging Ducks who won in OT in the other rink.
