Maple Leafs 2 Blues 1
The Blues had the best regular season in the team’s KFHL history this year, while the Leafs barely made the Playoffs
after several years absence. The teams regular season game however, had been close, with the Blues winning 1 to 0. The two
teams were unable to get too many chances on goal for much of the first period, due to their defensive units fine play. However,
with less than three minutes to play in the period Blues unguarded center Parker Hall jumped on a clearing pass and smashed
it into the Leaf net past goalie Andrew Shaver. It was the last he would allow, as he again had a very good game. Less than
a minute later Maple Leaf center Kolten Hosey ( who had let Hall get off the earlier scoring shot), smacked a long blast from
his own end of the floor that ended up in the back of the Blues net. His brother Dalton was also able to score on a fairly
long shot with a little over three minutes left in the second period to put the Leafs ahead. Neither team could get anything
past the goalies in the third period of the game giving the Leafs the upset win.
Northstars 9 Penguins 2
The Northstars jumped all over the Penguins in the first period of this tilt for five goals, with Evan Adrianson getting
four of them. Jacob Fulford had a goal for the Pens in the first and Stevan Linn got one for them in the second, but the Stars
dominated play for most of the game. Eston Sheldon had a pair of goals with Michael Royal, Mark Dixon, and Gena Remsing also
getting one apiece for the Northstars as they cruised into the semifinals.

this one it was tied at two apiece. The Rangers then had a big second period with three unanswered goals. Early in the third

by Aaron Gorman and two goals by Tyler Huver. Collyn Tuller had a hat trick and Caleb Krive one goal for the Bruins.
Canadiens 5 Flyers 2

Holden Creller and Gage Sisson both of whom had a very strong game. Alex Musser had a hat trick and Jacob Brighton two goals
for the Canadiens. Gavin Booher had the other Flyer tally.
