2004 5-2 exhibition win vs Albany (Hart Center, Worcester, MA)
The Worcester IceCats and Albany River Rats used almost everyone in what would be their usual regular season line-ups in a 5-2 preseason win for the ‘Cats. Colin Hemingway opened up the scoring with a power play goal, assisted by Mike Mottau and Dennis Wideman, at 7:48 of the first period. Mottau then made it 2-0 with a power play goal of his own at 8:32, with Hemingway and Peter Sejna providing the helpers. In the second stanza Konstantin Zakharov made it a three goal lead at 3:27 with Aaron MacKenzie providing the lone assist. Aaron Voros got one back for Albany on the power play at 7:44, but Blake Evans’ unassisted tally at 8:40 got the IceCats three goal lead back. In the third Aleksander Suglobov made it 4-2 at 7:54. Johnny Pohl added an unassisted empty net goal 19:07 for the 5-2 final. Jason Bacashihua played the whole way for Worcester and made 22 saves on 24 shots.
