Henrich a Game 1 hero at War Memorial

No one was describing this one as fancy footwork.

But Johnstown Chiefs forward Adam Henrich and his teammates didn’t mind.

Henrich’s goal 4:46 into overtime against the visiting Trenton Titans had another more important title: Game-winner.

The Chiefs edged the Titans 2-1 in overtime to win Game 1 of a best-of-3 Kelly Cup play-in series before 1,069 fans at Cambria County War Memorial Arena on Monday.

“I was at the right place at the right time,” said Henrich, positioned near the far post when forward Zbynek Hrdel sent a puck toward the cage from the left-wing corner. “I just went to the net. Hrdel threw it to the net and luckily it went off my foot.”

The puck caromed off Henrich’s skate and bounced past Trenton goaltender Rejean Beauchemin.

“I was telling the boys I’ve had seven or eight breakaways in the last four or five games and I didn’t get one,” Henrich said. “Then, I get a greasy one like that. That’s what the playoffs are all about.”

Game 2 will be at 7 tonight at Sovereign Bank Arena. Game 3, if necessary, moves to Planet Ice on Thursday.

“We knew coming in that it was going to be a tight game,” said Chiefs forward Jean Desrochers, whose goal 1:24 into the third period knotted the score at 1-all. “Ten out of the 13 games we played them this year were by one goal. We knew this wasn’t going to be an offensive contest.

“You try to play good defense and not give them too many chances. Every opportunity you get you shoot the puck. You go to the net. You get some lucky bounces at the end and that’s how you get it done.”

Chiefs goaltender Morgan Cey had another strong performance, turning away 38 of 39 Titans shots.
