NJ Outlaws defeat the Vermont Wild


The New Jersey Outlaws took on the Vermont Wild tonight at the Ice Vault. It was the two teams first ever meeting. The Outlaws came out flying in the first period and had a 4-0 lead after one. There was two simultaneous fights at the buzzer to end the first period. It got very nasty with #55 Barr receiving the bulk of the penalties including a game misconduct.

The goals in the first were scored by Matt Miller on the power play and assisted by Nathan Oke and John Goffredo. The second goal was scored 29 seconds later by Goffredo unassisted, Miller gave the Outlaws a 3-0 lead at the 14:48 mark of the first unassisted and Oke scored a shorthanded goal unassisted at the 18:01 mark of the first to give the Outlaws a 4-0 lead. New Jersey had a 18-4 shot advantage in the first.

In the second Vermont played much better, the Outlaws outshot them 15-9 and scored three goals to Vermont one goal. Matthew Puntureri scored the fifth goal for the Outlaws at the 4:51 mark of the second period and was assisted by Travis Kauffeldt. Kauffeldt scored at the 12:43 mark of the second period to give New Jersey a 6-0 lead and he was assisted by Kevin Cooper and Puntureri. Vermont finally got on the board at the 16:52 mark on a power play goal from Jason Dolgy. Goffredo scored his second goal of the game, assisted by Anthony Battaglia and Miller. It was scored at the 18:36 mark of the second period.

The third period saw each team score one goal. The Outlaws finished with a 54-23 shot advantage. The game got a little nasty at the end with a couple of fights. It didn’t get too crazy though. The Outlaws are now 8-2 on the season. The game for the most part was a very smooth game, Vermont for such a big team doesn’t really take the body.

The Outlaws will play Wednesday night at the Ice Vault against the Danbury Whalers. They will renew their rivalry. The Outlaws only two losses have come at the hand of the Whalers. It should be a good game and a fun night at the Ice Vault.
