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 Royals had a 2-1 weekend during the review period, with one of their two wins coming against the division-leading North Jersey Avalanche. In the game, Wild helped anchor a Royals defense that held the high-scoring Avalanche to only two goals in the Royals 6-2 victory. In addition  Wild scored a pair of goals, including the eventual game-winner, on the power-play, in the first period. Wild added a goal against the Saints on Sunday, giving him three goals and an assist, during the review period.

“Coming into the game, I told my team that the Avalanche are an offensive powerhouse that’s averaging five goals per game,” said Royals Head Coach Ken Hoey. “The team really had to step up their play to limit their quality shots. Corey (Cairo) will get credit for saving fifty-six out of fifty-eight shots, but the defense really did a good job in limiting the number of quality chances, specifically Noah, who helped shut down the Avalanche inside game. Noah is a great player and person on the bench and off the ice."

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.

Coming home for a division game between showcases, the Long Island Royals fell to the   New York Fighting Metro Moose 5-3 at Dix Hills Ice Rink in the two teams' third and final regular season meeting. The loss dropped Long Island to seventh place in the Mullen Division with 26 points.

Each side scored a power play goal in the first period, with Noah Wild whacking the puck into the net off a feed from Nick Tarasco. Moose forward James Bobb had scored his team-leading 16th goal exactly three minutes earlier.

Tarasco forced a turnover and slithered past a pair of Moose defenders to fire a goal past Dominic Lammano and give the Royals a 2-1 lead just 46 seconds into the second period. The Moose owned possession for most of the period however and grabbed a 31-12 advantage in shots heading into the final period. Allen West's goal put the Moose ahead 3-2 with 18.8 seconds remaining in the second.

Man advantages were common in the third period, as both teams combined for 10 penalties and there were several ejections. Anthony Cotroneo and Tyler Steimel scored a goal to break open the game for New York. Martin Greenberg scored his second goal of the year for the Royals on the breakaway with four seconds remaining in the contest. A pair of game misconducts by the Royals with just under four minutes remaining prevented them from pulling goalie Corey Cairo, who made 38 saves.

Ken Hoey's squad will open the MJHL Winter Showcase with a matchup against the Dowd Division leaders, the Frederick Freeze, at 1:45 p.m. Friday in West Chester, Pa. The Royals will also face off against the New Jersey Renegades and Boston Junior Rangers in the weekend showcase.

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.”
