Kittanning hockey team conquers Mars
Chaz Palla | Tribune Review Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, shown here addressing the media at his locker at Consol Energy Center in April, publicly supported the National Hockey League Players' Association on Thursday in its labor dispute with the league. The NHL has said it will lock out players if a new collective bargaining agreement is not reached before 11:59 p.m. Saturday.
Kittanning junior forward Hunter Grafton played a part in each of the Wildcats' goals during a 5-3 win over Mars in Class A action Tuesday night at BladeRunners in Warrendale.
Grafton finished with a hat trick and helped set up two scores by Christian Miller, who had the game-deciding goal in the second period and also earned two assists. The duo appears ready to carry on the routine established a season ago, when they occupied second and third place among PIHL Class A points leaders.
Cameron Langham made 29 saves in net for Kittanning (2-0). Craig Mazzotta snuck one by Langham and also had an assists for Mars (2-1).
