Demons’ Turnaround Season

It is no secret that the past couple of seasons haven’t been kind to the Demons.  Finding the right blend of talent and personality to fit a team’s identity can be a bit of a challenge.  But it looks like the wait has been worth it. New additions this season of Automatic Neil and BSA’s coworker (sorry I forgot your name already bro) have resulted in positives.  Through three games the Demons have scored 18 goals, allowed only 3 goals (+15 differential), sit atop the league standings, and played in the rain. Welcome back.

Second Star

Derek, Cory and Steven from Instant Karma

Cory not pictured.

Goalless and winless heading into the contest against the King Slayers things were looking a little bleak for Karma.  Not being a team to back down from any challenger Karma rolled up their sleeves, grabbed their lunch pals, and got to work.  Derek was a freaking maniac at both ends of the asphalt pond scoring two goals and containing a wild Hogg. Cory titled possession in his team’s favor with every shift and scored the shootout winner.  And Steven, who was drawing on inspiration from Robin Lehner, was stoic in net during the shootout by blanking all three of the Pucks’ chances. Things are looking up for Karma thanks to these boys.

First Star

Hookers’ Defense

Tiffany and Danilo are arguably the best defensive tandem in the league.

You would think being a Hooker would be all offense everything to earn that beer money, but these streets at BTSH have gotten real.  Through three weeks to start the 2019 season the Hookers haven’t allowed a single goal(!). That’s pretty amazing stuff considering the opponents they have faced (Butchers, Gut Rot, and Cobra Kai).  Kudos to the team’s net minders (that include a Week 2 Greenwald appearance) for keeping a clean sheet, but hats off to their defenders for the support.

Honorable Mention

Jason from LBS, Inc. scored two goals against a division rival in which one was on a breakaway that he celebrated by leaping into the fence Ovi-Style.

Mega Touch just seems to have the Gremlins number.  After starting the season 0-1-1 Julie brought in some ringers to ensure a W and a bump in the standings.

Mike M from Poutine Machine was partly responsible for an early Pou goal waived off due a questionable crease violation.  Instead of protesting he simply got back on defense, created a turnover and scored an undisputed goal from the point. My nerves thank you.
