Hockey Night: Edina outlasts Elk River and superb goaltender Sam Stockman

By Legacy Hockey Staff, 12/18/21, 12:15AM CST


Dec. 17: DeMars' OT goal boosts Grand Rapids past Eden Prairie; Roseau overpowers Rogers

Edina 1, Elk River/Zimmerman 0

EDINA - Edina fired 47 shots at Elk River/Zimmerman sophomore goaltender Sam Stockman, but Hornets senior Willy Johnson's second-period goal was all that got past the Elks' superb sophomore Friday night in a second-round game of the Edina Holiday Classic at Braemar Arena.

Stockman's unflappable play gave No. 20-2A Elk River/Zimmerman (5-3-0) a realistic chance to beat No. 1-2A Edina (6-0-0), or at least muster a tie.

The Elks had several quality chances in the closing minutes as they went on the power play and pulled Stockman in favor of an extra skater, but the Hornets blocked a series of shots and deflected a handful of others out of play.

DeMars' goal came 4:05 into the extra session and halted the No. 11-2A Thunderhawks' (6-3-0) recent trend of losing to top-ranked teams. 

Grand Rapids (6-3-0) was 5-0-0 before embarking on a road trip to the Canadian border and losing in overtime on back-to-back nights to No. 10-2A Roseau and No. 3-1A Warroad by identical 4-3 scores.

Jake Luloff scored twice for No. 16-2A Eden Prairie (3-3-0).
