Bedford skaters posts shutout to move record to 17-0

GOFFSTOWN — Neil Soucy broke a scoreless tie late in the second period and Asa Palker added two goals in third as Bedford defeated Goffstown, 3-0, at Sullivan Arena on the St. Anselm College campus on Wednesday.
Bedford remains a perfect 17-0 with one game remaining. Goffstown falls to 11-5.

Bedford’s Stevan Tempesta earned the shutout in net, his fourth of the season.

“We’re just trying to play consistent good hockey,” said Bedford coach Marty Myers. “Our goal these last few games is to play well.”
It was Senior Night for the Bulldogs and 12 players went out with a win in their final regular season home game.
But it was junior Asa Palker, with two third period goals, who stole the spotlight. “Asa started to step it up this year,” said Myers. “Next year he’ll certainly be a big factor for us.”

Goffstown outplayed Bedford for most of the game, outshooting them 21-10 in the first two periods.

“It’s always concerning when you’re getting outplayed,” said Myers. “But I was comfortable with it because we were getting opportunities.’’

Neil Soucy took advantage of his opportunity, putting in a loose rebound with 2:17 remaining in the second period, to put Bedford up 1-0.

“It’s going to take three solid periods and a couple breaks,” said Goffstown coach Paul Roy on what it takes to beat Bedford. “There’s a reason why they’re 17-0.”

“We’ve got two games left and we are working on some weaknesses. Hopefully come playoff time we’ll be ready,” said Roy.
