The Bobcats enjoyed a 2-0 lead into the third period until Pinkney scored back to back even strength goals from Doug Heath and John Haberkornâ¦.only 37 seconds apart to knot the contest late in the third.
The Bobcats then answered with 1:43 left on the clock with another even strength goal from Owen Walker which came on assists from both Hayden Seguin and Garrett Lesser.
After Pinkney pulled the goalie in an effort to tie it up, Seguin added an empty netter with :57 seconds left on a feed from Defensemen Brody Rosol to seal the victory on opening night for the Bobcats.
Lexi Francour backstopped the effort in net with 29 saves to earn his first victory of the season while the Bobcats were outshot 29-21.
