Ding Dong the Streak is Dead! Daemyung Sangmu ends team record 8 game skid.

The chronically short-staffed Sangmu platoon ended their losing streak with a 5-4 victory against the Tohoku Free Blades tonight. Their nearly dead power play jolted back to life tonight by going 3/9 and their penalty killers went 4/5 to end the longest losing streak in team history.  Motono Michitaka’s third goal from Logan Stephenson and Tanaka Go opened the scoring at 3:53 of the first period. Sangmu replied shortly after on a power play when Kim Sang-Wook wristed his 13th goal from the right faceoff circle past Itoh Yuto.

Sangmu went 1/3 in the first whille the Blades were 0/1.

2nd period

A string of penalties offered both teams plenty of room to operate in the period. Sangmu started the scoring with a short-handed marker by Lee Bon-Jin (5th goal) when he and Park Sang-Jin at 1:51 into the period . After being burned, the Free Blades banged home a 5 on 3 goal when Kim Staal’s point shot was tipped through a screen by Tanaka Ryo (7th) just over four minutes later. More penalties lead to two more Sangmu power play goals from Shin Hyung-Yun (9th) and defenseman Oh Kwang-Sik (3rd). SAngmu ended the second with a 4-2 lead.

3rd period

The Blades came out firing! 24 of their 52 shots on goal came in the third period and two by Shinohara Kota (3rd) and Yamashita Takuro (5th) found their way behind Han Jae-Ik. However, Mun “Cookie” Kuk-Hwan’s sixth goal of the year won the game for Sangmu.


The teams meet again on Saturday, December 12 at 18:00 KST and the game should be on On The Sports


Sangmu will try to avoid getting cut tonight when they host Blades

The Tohoku Freeblades take the bus (Santa’s sleigh maybe?) to Incheon tonight for their fourth meeting with Daemyung Sangmu at 6pm KST. Sangmu went 1-2 in 3 games against the Blades in Hachinoe to open the season. The teams find themselves in opposite positions from the previous three meetings with Sangmu being short-staffed this time. Neither team is afraid to go nuclear. Whether they dress 12 or 20 guys, the penalty box doors often get a workout when these teams clash.

The Blades are 6-4 in their last 10 but have dropped 2 straight They are 4-6 on the road including 2-0 in their last two.  Meanwhile, Sangmu has lost 8 in a row (4 straight at home) and is 1-9 in their last 10 and 3-11 at home.

Sangmu’s power play has been dreadful this year with 7 power play goals at home, yet only one in their last ten games (1/40). The Blades have the second best road power play, 10/37 27%. Sangmu also has the worst penalty kill at home with 64.7%.
