Adam Barkley and Joshua Broad set the pace in Brockville, last Tuesday night, as the Demons blew past the Braves, 6-1.
Barkley contributed four assists and was on the ice for all six of the Demons goals while Broad opened the scoring with a shot from an impossible angle off a Mason Carr pass. Broad also picked up two assists along the way.
Ben Lapier collected a short-handed goal when he out-skated the Braves to the puck to get a good shot away.
The Demons led 4-0 after the first period on the Broad (from Barkley), Mason Carr (from Broad), Lapier (from Barkley) and Maxime Paquette (from Barkley) goals.
It was in the second that Brockville’s Jones collected the lone Braves goal from Brendan Shaver, while Braves goaltender Belisle prevented the Demons from adding anything more to the count.
Then in period three, Lapier counted his second goal (assisted by Kieran McQueen-Ladoucer and Paquette), and Jaymen Heuff finished it off with help from Broad and Barkley.

The Panthers came out strong in the third, with two goals to go up 5-4, but they couldn’t hold on.
Jaymen Heuff, with help from Carr and Paquette, counted for the Demons with 2:35 left in the game to tie it 5-5.
