“He is playing extremely well,” coach Jamie Russell said. “He’s solid, making big saves. Our goaltending has been terrific all year, but Eamon’s really taken it to another level.”

Much of the credit for the Railers’ victory went to goaltender Eamon McAdam. He played one of his best games of the season and was at his best early, then late. Worcester played a torpid first period and was outshot, 13-1, but headed into the intermission in a scoreless tie.
The goal was Hamonic’s first in 43 games with the Railers, his second in 134 games in the ECHL.
“I didn’t like our first period, obviously,” Russell said, “but give the guys a lot of credit. We had a great shift to start the second period, came out and created some chances and had a lot of (offensive) zone play. We showed a lot of character coming back like that from a goal down to get a big overtime goal and two big points.”
