PORT HURON, Mich. - The Johnstown Tomahawks scored two power-play goals three minutes apart in the second period, and Mike Sandor broke a tie with 4:25 to play as Johnstown beat Port Huron, 3-2, Friday night.
Sandor scored the game-winning goal, his first since Oct. 27 at Kalamazoo, unassisted in a highlight-reel play. Near the Port Huron blue line, Sandor swatted the puck out of the air, toe-dragged around a defenseman and put the puck past Port Huron goaltender Max Milosek.
The Tomahawks have won three straight road games and are 8-1-1 in their last 10 road games. The victory keeps Johnstown just five points out of first place in the North Division.
JOHNSTOWN - Dan Landon scored a pair of goals, but Bishop Guilfoyle lost to Johnstown, 9-3, at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena in a high school hockey game late Thursday.
