Boots blanks Brampton, Railers win 2-0

Railers_2019

The Worcester Railers took to the road for the first time with new head coach Dave Cunniff at the helm, and behind a 30 save effort from Evan Buitenhuis and third period goals from Nic Pierog and Dante Salituro defeated the Brampton Beast 2-0 at the CAA Centre in Brampton, Ontario.

With the snow of the last two days playing havoc with my work schedule this writer couldn’t watch the game, so we’ll go back to the Sharkspage days and link to the article on the Railers official site. For those interested in Brampton’s point of view on the game you can check that out on their website.

The Railers also had a few tweets from the game worth seeing, the first being Pierog’s shorthanded goal and another of a quick snapshot of a nice Buitenhuis save.

They later had a quick interview with Buitenhuis.

Cam McGuire tweeted the lines out pregame, so we’ll toss those out there.
