Justice League blows 3-0 lead, loses 4-3.

Some will say it was a choke, others a great comeback.

No lead is safe on Friday morning...A three goal lead is the worst lead in hockey...Mark Melito never passes...

Insert your favorite hockey cliche here.  But no matter how you8r slice it, the green Avengers narrowly avoided there first loss of the season.

First period goals by Ragu, on a super slap shot from 10 feet away, and then Morin, on a sweet pass up the middle from the opposing goalie Cooz, had the red team up 2-0.

In the 2nd, Melito made it 3-0, and it looked like Vieira would not only get a win, but a shutout.

But before the 2nd period would end, Legere and Thompson would each score and it was now 3-2 with still a period to go.

In that third period, Thompson would tie it and the comeback was complete.

"The toughest part about playing defense with Jon Morin, is running into him behind the other team's net," said Joe Surette.

With time running out, rookie Keith Leblanc went coast to coast and tucked shot in behind Vieira for a 4-3 Avenger win.

Green improves to 4-0-1 while Red falls to 2-2-1.
