“I was just having fun out there, smiling the whole way,” Mandolese told 800 CJBQ on Saturday night. “I think, especially with the start of the season we’ve had, it could be easy to get down on ourselves. I was just having fun out there tonight, the boys played unreal”.

Jake Lucchini (one assist) and Roby Jerventie (one goal,one assist) earned the game’s first two stars, extending their multi-game points streaks.

Former Senators forward Cole Cassels scored his first on the season for Cleveland, and Brendan Gaunce forced extra time, tallying on a 6-on-3 man advantage late in the third period. Jean-Francois Berube made 31 saves on home ice.

Troy Mann again had to make significant lineup changes after an impressive 6-2 win on Friday night, with 12 regulars unavailable. Forwards Alexis D’Aoust, Luke Nogard and Hugo Roy made their Senators’ debuts competing on PTO’s from the Atlanta Gladiators (ECHL).
