The patriot hans hope they can feed their team with energy after the goals.nice keeper play and that pesky post would keep things knotted up.two scoreless extra time periods and a back and fourth shootout would lead to sudden death for the teams.on rivet's shot, abby niehaus puts some heat on to beat the goal keeper to give the patriots advantage.
