2021-22 Playoff Finals Game 1 Recap

Some are calling it the best game of all time! The Seals and Wolf Pack toed off in a thriller this past Saturday.

The two teams started out in a deadlock after the first period, being a 0-0 afair. Each team had a fair amount of scoring chances, but the goalies AND the posts were up to the task.

The second period started with Seals grabbing an early lead with Trei Cools netting his first of the game. It wouldn't take long for the Wolf Pack to answer back as Brent Severance scored on a slick pass set up by Zeljko Sreckovic. A scary moment would be soon to follow as Trei Cools chair tipped over. But after a break to settle down from the shake up, Cools would do the unthinkable. Off the floor and on the board. Cools netted a goal just shortly after on a perfect pass by Dean Olivas putting the Seals up 2-1 heading in to the third.

Early in the third the Seals again scored, this time Alex Ernsberger netting one to make it 3-1. The game seemed to be tilting in the Seals favor before the Wolf Pack stormed back with a fury. Piotr Pasik was able to put in back to back goals in two minutes, one from half court and one on a perfect pass from Brent Severance. Just as soon as the Wolf Pack could get the momentum back, the Seals took it away. Dean Olivas scored on a goal that just snuck by goalie Ian Zurawski only 10 second after the Wolf Pack tied things up.

The Seals hung tight despite some pushes by the Wolf Pack at the end, ultimately coming away with a victory in game one. These two teams will square off once more on June 4th. If the Seals will they will capture glory, but the Wolf Pack will be looking to make sure there is at least one more game this year.
