Josh Sanderson scored five times, and Dan Teat and Jim Moss both recorded hat tricks as the Albany Attack handed the Washington Power their second straight loss, 17-9 Saturday at the Capital Centre.
Goalie Rob Blasdell, who finished with 42 saves, aided the Albany cause by blanking the Power on ten fourth-period shots. The Attack, meanwhile, came up with goals by Sanderson (6:13), Teat (8:01, 10:00), Moss (12:09) and Gary Rosyski (12:47) in the final 15 minutes to complete the rout.
Brian Kazarian, Moss and Sanderson gave Albany an early 3-0 lead, but the Power snapped back. Paul Cantabene's goal with 26 seconds left on the clock gave Washington a 5-4 first-period advantage.
Paul Gait and Fred Jenner upped Washington's lead to 7-4 with 13:18 left in the half before Albany's offense hit its stride. Gary Rosyski and Nick Trudeau closed the gap to one at 7-6, and Sanderson put the Attack on top with a natural hat trick before the buzzer.
A shorthanded goal by Del Halladay and the second of Gait's three goals left the Power even at 5:37 of the third stanza, but Washington's scoring was finished, while the Attack racked up eight more tallies before the final whistle.
Rosyski finished with two goals and four assists for Albany. Teat and Kazarian each set up three goals. Halladay and Gait paced the Power, each with three goals. Gary Gait had no goals, but four assists.
