Hockey Lakers gain payback against CBA/J-D

Kuhns hits tying, winning goals in third period of 3-2 win

— To that point, CBA/J-D had not gone on the power play – but it did so midway through the third period, only to have Skaneateles make a successful kill.

Then another Laker penalty, this one for tripping, gave the Brothers another man advantage with 3:54 left, which forced Skaneateles to play strong defense again.

Here, it didn’t take long for the Lakers to clear out the puck. A CBA/J-D player picked it up behind the net, but before it could get started again, Kuhns, rushing back, forced a steal and, in one motion, went out in front to beat Decker for a short-handed, go-ahead goal with 3:16 left.

Now in catch-up mode, the Brothers made one more attack, pulling Decker, but Skaneateles again turned it back and held on for a particularly satisfying victory.
