Richmond Sockeyes are a win away from advancing to the conference final.
An unassisted goal by rookie affiliate Michael Tersigni at 6:51 of the third period gave the Sockeyes a hard-fought 3-2 victory over the host North Vancouver Wolf Pack Wednesday. Richmond now leads the best-of-seven first-round Pacific Junior Hockey League playoff series 3 games to 1, and can advance with a win tonight (Thursday) at Minoru Arenas. Game time is 7 p.m.
North Vancouver opened the scoring and took a 2-0 lead early in the second, but Richmond was able to draw even in the middle frame on goals by Nicholas Bizzutto and Arjun Badh.
Games 6 and 7, if needed, are scheduled for Saturday at North Vancouver’s Harry Jerome Rec Centre and Monday at Minoru Arenas.
