The Long Island Royals jumped up to fifth place in the Mullen Division after plowing through highs and lows to begin 2014. After a 5-1 home win against the New York Saints on Jan. 4, the Royals suffered a hard fought 7-6 shootout loss to the Brewster Bulldogs the next day. Long Island quickly bounced back from a 9-3 home loss to the Richmond Generals on Saturday when they traveled to Norwalk, Ct. and trounced the Oilers 8-3 on Sunday.

 With an 18-12-3 record, Ken Hoey's squad has secured 39 points heading into its longest home stand of the season.

 Matt O'Shaughnessy helped lead the Royals to a season sweep of the Saints with his third hat trick of the 2013-14 season. His goal at the 4:37 mark was the first of three Long Island scores in a six-minute span in the first period. Brandon McLennan capped the first period with his eight goal of the season and also assisted on O'Shaughnessy's final goal.

 Sal Lauretta relieved Corey Cairo in goal midway through the second period, made 13 saves and allowed the only Saints goal to Saints forward Griffin Privitera early in the third period. Tyler Stark made 31 saves in the losing effort for New York.

 The Royals traveled to Brewster early the following morning to face the Bulldogs for the second time this season. Chad Fasig was the hero for the Bulldogs, scoring for the second time in four games and handing the Royals their first shootout loss in more than a year.

 Two scores by Bulldogs forward Christopher Hagan put the Royals in an early hole, but Long Island's top line capitalized on a power play when captain Anthony Koslow and O'Shaughnessy fed McLennan for a goal at the 10:50 mark of the second period that cut the deficit to 4-3.

 Down by a single goal heading into the third period, Long Island tied the game at five on with a Joe Bonsignore wrist shot and took its first lead nearly 10 1/2 minutes later when Koslow sped down the ice and hit the back of the net. The Royals defense could not contain Cal Hynson however, as the Bulldogs' forward picked up a hat trick with just four seconds remaining to send the contest into overtime.

 Fasig's goal ended a four-game overtime winning streak for the Royals that dated back to Oct. 19. Koslow had a season-high four points, while Cairo made 27 saves in regulation and overtime combined.

 The Generals cooled down the Royals' offense Saturday, shutting them out until the third period when Chris DeAngelis fed McLennan down low for a power play goal. Seven different Generals scored on Cairo before Ian Wallace made his sixth appearance in net. Cairo faced a barrage of Generals shots over two periods and stopped a total of 34. Wallace played between the pipes the entire third period and made 10 saves of his own. Richmond had outshot Long Island 53-22 by the end of the contest.

 Connecticut put up a fight early against the Royals and even took a 2-1 lead early in the second period. Long Island roared back with a four-goal scoring spree that began with Matt Araujo finding the back of the net on the Royals' fourth power play of the game. Araujo also assisted on O'Shaughnessy's first of two goals, which sailed up and over the right shoulder of Oilers goaltender Luiz Dibble.

 Lauretta stopped 35 of the 38 shots he faced in his fifth start in net this season for the Royals.

 Long Island will host the defending Keegan Cup Champion New Jersey Rockets at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to kick off a five-game home stand. The Royals face off against the Hartford Wolfpack at 8:50 p.m. Saturday and Applecore at 2 p.m. Sunday at Dix Hills Ice Rink.

The Long Island Royals squeezed out two wins in three games at the MJHL Winter Showcase last weekend in West Chester, Pa. Ken Hoey's squad rebounded from a 5-2 loss to the Frederick Freeze on Friday by posting back to back 2-1 victories over the New Jersey Renegades and Boston Junior Rangers, respectively.

 Corey Cairo remained rock solid between the pipes for Long Island, allowing just six goals on 110 shots over the weekend to pick up MJHL First Star of the Week honors.

The Royals fell into an early hole against the Dowd Division leading Freeze, surrendering a short handed goal toward the end of the first half that put Frederick ahead 2-0. Anthony Koslow fired both Royals' goals past Bryan Canter with the help of Zachary Shields and Matt O'Shaughnessy, but an empty netter from Todd Clingerman erased any hopes of a Long Island comeback.  

 Saturday's 2-1 contest was the Royals first overtime win this season. Following a delay of game penalty to Renegades forward Ryan Zujkowski, Long Island forced a turnover in the defensive end and created a four on two advantage. Shields then corralled the puck in front of the net and blasted the clinching score. Joe Bonsignore had the other goal for the Royals, which was the first of his three goals in the showcase. Cairo outdueled Devin Cheifetz by making 36 saves in goal.

 On the first power play of Sunday's game, Rangers forward Derek Mecrones slid the puck past Cairo for the only goal of the first period. Bonsginore found his scoring touch halfway through the second period however, tying the score at one on a short handed breakaway. Noah Wild fed Bonsignore on the power play to make it 2-1, and Cairo preserved Long Island's lead for the final six minutes. 

 Cairo stopped 43 of the 44 shots he faced in the matchup. He has logged more minutes in net (1,087) than any goalie in the MJHL this season.

 Standing in seventh place in the Mullen Division with 30 points, the Royals begin a stretch of 13 consecutive division games on Thursday night. Long Island will face off against the New York Applecore at 7:30 p.m. at Long Beach Arena.

The MJHL announced today Brandon McLennan picked up the leagues second star this week after anchoring a Royals defense that only allowed four goals this past weekend at the Thanksgiving Showcase and also chipped in with a pair of goals and three assists as the Royals went a perfect 3-0 at the Showcase.

“Brandon is one of those special players on defense that allows us to turn him loose in the offensive zone and know he will still cover his own end,” said Royals Head Coach Ken Hoey. “Brandon’s unique skill set would easily allow him to play forward as well as defense. A player like Brandon is on the wish list of every head coach.”

The Long Island Royals continued their flair for late game heroics with 5-4 victories against the New York Applecore and North Jersey Avalanche over the weekend. Shootout goals by Nick Tarasco and Sammy Soifer, respectively, vaulted the Royals to one point behind the Avalanche for first place in the Mullen Division to conclude October.
By picking up the two extra points the Royals now have a total of 20 points and an overall record of 9-5-2 this season.
Ken Hoey's squad leaped ahead of local rival Applecore 2-0 on goals down in front from Matt O'Shaughnessy and Joe Bonsignore. Zachary Shields assisted on both scores. Zane Katz quickly responded for New York with a goal of his own to make it 2-1 after the first period. James Sharpe gave the Applecore its first lead of the game at the 3:36 mark of the third period with his fourth goal of the season, but Brett Rooney's wrister on the stick side of Christoph Mutschin tied the score again.
With Long Island playing its second consecutive shutout in front of the Dix Hills crowd, Rooney forced sudden death by burying another goal in the fifth round. Corey Cairo made a pad save on a shot by Ricky Eberhart to open the sixth round before it was Tarasco's turn to shoot. Tarasco cut to the left and forced Mutschin to a sprawl out in front before whacking the puck over the goal line for the Royals' second shootout win in as many games.
Defensemen Brandon McLennan and Dylan Fogarty were able to hold off the Applecore power play throughout the contest and Cairo outdueled Mutschin in net by making 26 saves in his 11th game of the season.

 Soifer's second game-winning goal in three games ended a game in which the Royals were outshot 42-29. Facing the best team in the Mullen Division, Long Island lit up their opponent for three goals in the first period from unexpected forwards. Harry Wilmerding, Matthew Araujo and Martin Greenberg scored on Avalanche netminder Jordan Bustard. None of them had found the back of the net in the last five games. Rocky Covello propelled the Avalanche with two out of their three unanswered goals in the second period to send the Royals into the locker room facing a 4-3 deficit.
After three killed Avalanche power plays, Anthony Koslow sent the game into overtime with a goal at the 15:14 mark of the third period. The shootout went to a 2-2 stalemate when Soifer stepped up to center ice as the ninth man. Soifer put the puck through the five hole on Bustard, who has a 1.71 GAA this season, for his second game-winning goal in three games. Cairo closed his pads on a shot by Nicholas Brown to send the Royals out of Ice House Hackensack with their third straight shootout win and second consecutive 5-4 victory.
Cairo was named the third MJHL Star of the Week after stopping 12 of the 14 shots he faced in the last two shootout wins.
“Corey was the backbone of our team this weekend,” said Royals Head Coach Ken Hoey said. “He made so many of those ‘how did he do that?’ type saves that really kept us in the games this weekend.”
The Royals won't have a chance to capture their fourth straight win until Saturday, November 16, when they host the Hartford Junior Wolfpack at 8:50 p.m. at Dix Hills Ice Rink.
