2015 EHL Champions: Connecticut Oilers


Connecticut Oilers captured the second Eastern (Junior) Hockey League Championship.

Down in the best-of-5 series 2 games to 1 against reigning champs Northern Cyclones, they rallied back with two convincing victories.

Starting goalie Michael Tilford(1) stopped a monumental 64 of 65 chances in the deciding final contest and Phil Kreuser(10), who was set to be a healthy scratch but played, scored the game-winning goal.

The Oilers had to beat some tough competition sweeping an always tough Walpole Express team and regular season best Philadelphia Little Flyers, who lost only three games in regulation during the 2014/2015 campaign.

Their efforts earned them a very well-played and deserved title.
