Pigs poke the Chickens in OT, 5-4.

Despite listening to Cold Play, Mark Melito had just enough man left in him to score the winner in OT for the red Pigs.

The teams were in the back end of a home and home series. Last week the Chickens barely got by the Pigs 10-0. This week the red team would not get shutout, as Mark Melito took a pass from Trevor Legere and made a nice coldplay for a 1-0 Pig lead after one.

In the 2nd the Chickens came out clucking. Mike Raimo made the most of his two shifts and tied the game at 1-1. Assists going to Chris Caruso and a very Angry Joe Smith.

"I've never seen him that mad, he was a bad hombre," said Brian Armand.

Morin and Bruner would trade goals and the middle period finished up 2-2. In the 3rd each team scored two, and each team had a brief lead, though nobody would win in regulation. A late Dustin Silk goal made sure of that.

In OT it got angry. As in Angry Jack. Not sure what he was doing out there in the bonus 3 on 3 period, but he set up Melito for the game winner with just 25 seconds to play.

"We put out our 3 most angry players," said Marc Teal. "And we still had several angry players on the bench ready to go."

The loss is an OT loss for the Chickens, their only blemish on what was/is a perfect season. They sit at 6-0-0-1, well ahead of the pack.
