Well it happened again, Fuji Magic leads to 4-3 win.

It's the same old story every season. Fuji sucks during the regular season, then turns into Tiny Thompson in the playoffs.

This week his team stunned the top team with a 4-3 win in game one.

Coming in as heavy dogs, they fell behind just a minute in when Rick Murphy scored for Green.

"Man this is going to be easier than we though," said Murph.

But Fuji buckled down after that awful goal,and allowed only two more the rest of the way. This allowed the yellow offense and their new players, to put on a show.

After Luke Steigerwald tied the game in the first, George Anderson and Tom Conway scored for Gold as the C players were shining. Dan Lundergan had assisted on 2 of the 3 goals, and was making Steve Hardy look old.

Goals by Steve Thompson and Keith Leblanc would have the game tied at 3-3 headed to the third.

In that final period both goalies were lights out until the 2 minute mark, when JA Ambrosino sniped one over the shoulder of Cooz for the game winner. The stunned crowd witnessed Fuji Magic first hand as Gold took game one 4-3.
