“The plan was to get a quick start and try to relax a little bit,” Eagles coach Kyle Botos said. “Three goals like that kind of settles everybody in.”

The Eagles pressured NDCL (14-9-2) from the start and it paid off with the three scores in less than two minutes midway through the first period.

Defenseman Leo Goetz started the scoring with a slap shot from the right wing on assists by Shane Docherty and Alex Provenza with 8:56 left in the first period.
