Bruggrabe began by registering his first league shutout Friday, turning aside all 27 shots he faced in blanking the Espanola Express at Pullar Stadium.

He followed that up by making 25 stops Sunday afternoon as the Eagles ousted Espanola on the road.

Bruggrabe will enter the best-of-seven series with the T-Birds sporting a 1.57 playoff goals-against average along with a solid .981 save percentage.

CHRIS MURPHY, (F) SOO EAGLES – Joining Gaudet with five goals and three assists in the series victory over is Murphy.

Hailing from Livonia, Mich., the Eagles forward sent Sault Ste. Marie on their way in Game 1 against Espanola scoring three times and helping set-up two others.
