Game Recap: Hat Tricks Sweep Three-Game Weekend with 6-2 Win Over Watertown

by Jordan Simmons & Doug Lattuca

WATERTOWN, NY — The Hat Tricks potted five unanswered goals to pull away from Watertown in a 6-2 victory on Sunday. Danbury scored once in the first and second periods and four times in the third with rookie forward Bohdan Zinchenko notching two in the final frame. With the win, the Hat Tricks clinched the playoffs and swept the three-game weekend recording all nine points.

With five minutes remaining in the first, defenseman Zach Pamaylaon, off of a ricochet, got the Hat Tricks on the board first on the power play. Following a blocked shot from the point, the puck squirted to Pamaylaon at the left circle and he snapped home the game’s opening goal.

At 8:08 of the second frame, Connor Woolley banged in a rebound in front to extend the lead to two. Through two periods, the Hat Tricks outshot the Wolves 38-18.

5:18 into the third period, Bohdan Zinchenko buried a breakaway to push the Danbury advantage to three. With 10:24 remaining, Billy Berry backhanded one past Watertown’s netminder Eloi Bouchard to balloon the Hat Tricks' advantage to four. A minute and a half later, Zinchenko caught a pass from Michael Falanga and slipped it into the back of the net. 

Watertown scored twice in under a minute and 30 seconds to cut the deficit to three, but with a minute to go in regulation, Chase Harwell netted an empty-netter to close out the game.

The Hat Tricks head on the road again for a two-game stint next weekend against Blue Ridge. Puck drop is set for Friday, March 22 at 7:30 p.m. and Saturday, March 23 at 7 p.m.
