The Springfield Jr. Blues faced a must-win situation this weekend in their home series against the Minnesota Magicians. Goalie Jordan Greenfield-Flemon, 20, stepped to the forefront for his club as he started and won both games, keeping Springfield in the race for the final playoff spot in the Midwest Division.
In total, the 6’4/195 lbs. native of Edmonton, Alberta, faced 71 shots and made 68 saves in the two wins. On Friday, Greenfield-Flemon had 38 saves through regulation and overtime, then stopped all four Magicians shooters in a 3-2 shootout victory. On Saturday, he made 30 saves in a 4-1 win. For the season, Greenfield-Flemon has a record of 4-4-1 with a 2.43 goals against average and a 93.4% save percentage.
“Jordan was a calming force for us in net this past weekend. He made some big saves late Friday that gave us a chance to win and on Saturday he was consistent and just shut the door,” said Springfield head coach Tony Zasowski.
Springfield will play tomorrow night at The Nelson Center against the Janesville Jets. The first 250 fans through the door will receive a 2016-17 Team Poster courtesy of CEFCU.
