Working with a man advantage in the second period, Richard scored the first of his two goals on the night with a power play marker to make it 3-0, Tigers. Richard struck again at the 3:30 mark of the third period for a 4-0 lead. Shaler’s Michael Fuchs broke the NA shutout bid with a meaningless goal with 22 seconds remaining to bring the score to its eventual final, 4-1.
