Cam Connolly stopped 35 of 36 shots in net to secure the victory, and through five games he tops the league for both his 0.956 save percentage and his 1.18 goals against average (six goals allowed).
Pierce Whyte was the player of the game on Friday night, as rookie from North Van put up a goal and two assists. Zack Lagrange scored twice, Edwards and Brendan Chabot each had a goal and an assist, and Linden Perry and Jordan Kujala also scored. Kochan and Foster each had two assists.
Great night at The Cam tonight. The Whyte-Foster-Lagrange line combines for 7pts. Mobz 1st home win. But most importantly, a big W for the fellas. Awesome to see some of the 01 alums come out tonight: Tysh, Amz, Roser, Beech, Schouter! #ProudGM #Culture
