It’s obvious that Everett started out fast but blew out way too quickly, taking all of their shots on net in the first period, and taking no more for the rest of the game. However, the Malden-Revere team took it slow, scoring modestly in each period but keeping their defense and goalie locked down. This had let them add up their points over the three periods into a whopping 7-0, keeping the Malden-Revere Joint Boys hockey team undefeated as of this early into the season. At their current rate, it looks as if they could be having a great season this year.
