Aces Defence Keeps Sharks at Bay
January 18 - Steven Johnston's hat-trick combined with an unyielding defensive effort kept the Scotiabank South China Sharks relatively quiet in the Manulife Macau Aces 7-4 victory on Thursday night. Aces' net-minder Liam Moorfield-Yee made 25 saves while defenceman and Captain Tyler Doherty notched two assists and neutralized South China's offence while claiming the Burger Joys First Star of the game. The statement win further exhibited Macau's dominance in the league and makes them an odds-on favourite to reach the Scotiabank Cup finals.
Burger Joys 3 Stars
1) Tyler Doherty (Aces)
