What a night for Savoie

Wasn’t it great to see Dominic Savoie score that hat trick on Friday night? Here’s a player who will do anything for the team. The previous twelve games he spent as a defenseman while Garrett Clarke was serving his suspension.

“We had some injuries and stuff on defense. Coach asked if I wanted to play and I said ‘of course’,” says Dominic Savoie. “It was kind of hard but I really enjoyed it. I think it helped the team.”

“It makes us feel so good when someone has done so much for the team gets rewarded,” says Lewiston’s head coach Don MacAdam. “It wasn’t a hat trick in a 9-2 win. It was a hat trick in a game close the whole night long.”

He only had four goals heading into the game and a total of six goals in his career.

That last goal was a beauty wasn’t it?

“I thought I missed the night,” Savoie said. “Morin and Beaton had a pretty good game. We clicked pretty well. They worked their (butt) off all game long.”

The great thing about this interview was Patrick Cusack in the background teasing Savoie.

I liked what coach said after the game.

“The entire team was thrilled for Dominic. He’s not a glory guy,” says MacAdam.

MacAdam also said he deserved to stay on a line with Morin and Beaton.

“We have too. He earned that position,” MacAdam said.

That’s My Take
