The Nords and Titans began their quest for the Robertson cup in a round 1 best of 5 matchup.
The Nords started off hot with some great chances, but were stopped by Titans goalie Christan Stoever. The Nordiques also got great goal tending all game long from Tyriq Outen. The Nords were unable to convert on the power play, but Outen kept the Titans at bay. 0-0 after 1st period.
The 2nd period saw more up and down rush chances and a fast moving game. The Nords would be unable to convert on another Power Play but Goaltending would prevail again in the 2nd. 0-0 after 2nd period.
The Nords and Titans would play a key 20 minutes to see who would take game 1 in the series. The Titans had some rush chances late but Ty Outen would make NHL level stops in the crease. 0-0 through 16 full minutes until defenseman Matt Connor would get a pass from Isiah Fox, fire the puck on net which was in and out of the glove of Christan Stoever; allowing the puck to go up into the air, Nordiques regular season point leader and veteran, Stefan Owens, would bat the puck down with the glove and burry it. The Titans would pull their net minder for an extra attacker and head to the power power play, it wasn’t enough to beat Ty Outen as his first playoff game in the NAHL was a 39 save shutout.
1-0 Nords win!!
Nordiques lead series 1-0
