Bedford turns on power to top Bow, stay unbeaten in NHIAA hockey

GOFFSTOWN — The Bedford Bulldogs collected three power-play goals and remained unbeaten with a 4-1 win over Bow in NHIAA Division II hockey at Sullivan Arena on the St. Anselm campus Monday night.

Two-time defending champion Bedford is now 12-0-0 while Bow fell to 9-3-0 The Falcons came out strong but were not able to capitalize as Bedford adjusted and eventually took control.

“They set the pace last game and we wanted to set the pace this game,” said Bedford coach Marty Myers. “It’s nice to see when you work on things and see it executed in the game. I give the kids credit. They did a good job (on the power play).”

Bedford opened the scoring at 1:53 of the second period, collecting the first of the power play goals. Patrick Gagliardi scored, getting to a loose puck off a faceoff in the Bow end and firing a shot that hit traffic in front and then trickled through Bow goalie Kinsman Corthell.

The Bulldogs extended to a 2-0 lead at 7:29 on their second power play. Nate Boyd skated around the defense in the left circle and snapped off a shot from the slot to beat Corthell off his shoulder and into the net.

Bow cut the lead to 2-1 at 10:18, scoring a power-play goal of its own. Devin Barker fed captain Chris Fournier for a shot from the right circle that beat Alec Lindberg high stick-side.

Bedford made it 3-1 with another extra-man tally at 13:58 of the second. Gagliardi scored again, this time on a slap shot from above the left circle off a feed from Daniel Gregson, beating Corthell high glove-side.

“Patrick is more of a defensive defenseman,” Myers said. “Any time you can get offense out of the defense, that’s just pure bonus. Patrick always has good games and this was probably one of his best games I’ve seen all year.”

The Bulldogs added an insurance goal with 4:31 remaining in the game. Harrison Voloshin scored from the left circle with a wrister glove-side to make it 4-1. The goal capped a third period in which Bedford clamped down defensively, allowing Bow just four shots in the final 15:00.

Bow came out strong, controlling play for most of the first period but coming up with little to show for it as Lindberg was strong early. Fournier had the best chance of the frame, breaking in alone 4:25 into the game and getting off a backhand shot that Lindberg stuffed with his pad sliding to his left and setting the pace early.
