Tmen look to even series in Game 4
The Timbermen were unable to build on an impressive Game 1 of their first round playoff series with the Victoria Shamrocks on Friday.
The Shamrocks won 8-4 in Game 2, a game where the Tmen couldn't get their offense on track.
Jon Phillips, Colton Clark, Dane Sorensen, and Drew Belgrave had the goals and Charles Claxton made 40 saves.
Game 3 of the all Island series went Sunday at the Q Centre.
The game was back and forth much of the night but the Shamrocks scored four of the five goals to open the second period and Nanaimo couldn't come all the way back.
The scoreline finished 11-8 for Victoria who now hold a 2-1 series lead.
Mason Pynn chipped in two goals and Cam Wengreniuk led all Nanaimo scorers with a goal and three assists.
Charles Claxton and Mike DeGirolamo split the goaltending duties.
Game 4 goes Tuesday at 7:30pm at Frank Crane Arena.
