 Thunder open the season with a win in Streatham

Thunder made the trip to the high road last night to take on the Redskins in their first game of the season. With a strong squad this season, Thunder were not affected by missing four key players and took to the ice with three strong lines.
Redskins started strongly and had good possession in Thunder's zone for a lot of the opening period. Callum Best gave the home side the lead mid period eventually finding a way pass the impressive Damien King making his debut in the Thunder goal. Thunder's first powerplay was the opportunity needed to level the score, the powerplay was impressive through out the game with Thunder working the puck well in the Redskins zone to open up the scoring chance. It was Josh Nicklin that scored the equaliser at 16:03 assisted by Jamie Line and Piotr Poziomkowski.
Sam Cheema went toe to toe with Redskins Callum Best a minute later in a statement that Thunder weren't there to be pushed around. Redskins tried to up the physical side and went in after Damien King when he had saved and covered the puck, the result, 3 roughing penalties on Redskins and 2 on Thunder as Thunder again stood up for each other.
The second period was much better from Thunder, now they were into game mode for proper and their transitional play through the neutral zone was slick and assured which started to rattle the home side. Two minutes into the period and Thunder were ahead, another powerplay goal this time scored by Poziomkowski and assisted by Line. Redskins got level shortly afterwards through Brandon Miles but Thunder's third powerplay goal of the night saw them ahead again before the break. This time it was man of the match Jamie Line that scored with Alex Whyte providing the assist.
Redskins came out strong in the final period but couldn't find a way through Thunder's resolute defence with King making some fine saves. Their lack of success turned to frustration and the home side started to take needless penalties. This was great for Thunder, they were able to keep possession for much of the remaining ten minutes, and protect that valuable one goal advantage and take the two points in their opening game.
There is still work to do with Thunder needing to improve their defensive zone coverage and clearing the zone, but going forward they look potent. The passing and movement is good and at the back Damien King showed what a class keeper he is stopping 40 of the 42 shots faced.
