Goodbye is a good game for McCall goalie Liebich

Suns run into tough


By JEFF CORDES
Express Staff Writer

Ryan McDonald

After a solid 2005-06 season organizationally and on the ice, the Sun Valley Suns men's hockey team was pretty much riding out the string last weekend during its season-ending visit to lake country for a two-game series with the McCall Mountaineers.

It wasn't like the Suns held anything back. They just started slowly, spotting McCall 3-0 leads each night before falling 4-3 Friday and 5-2 Saturday at Manchester Ice and Event Centre in downtown McCall. A few defensive lapses and that was pretty much that for Sun Valley.

McCall's veteran crew had more motivation, for two big reasons.

First, McCall was gearing up for its third consecutive visit to the USA Hockey Adult Men's Non-Check Over 30 Division national tournament April 20-23 at Scottsdale, Az. With its lineup stocked full of former Idaho Steelheads, McCall will be trying to repeat its 2004 national non-check title won in Florida.

Saturday's game was also a home farewell for Mountaineers goalie Mark Liebich, 36, who has decided to hang it up competitively due to a nagging knee injury. Much respected, Liebich (11-5-1 in 16 games against the Suns since 2003) has always been a thorn in the Suns side. Occasionally he has been spectacular.

You'd be hard pressed to find a Suns player who didn't have renewed respect for former Air Force Academy goalie Liebich after Saturday's 33-save effort. The McCall goalie yielded only two goals—power-play tallies by Chris Warrington and Scott Winkler. Liebich was equal to everything else that came his way.

"Liebich played great," said Suns head coach Chris Benson.

When the Mountaineers travel to Arizona, Liebich will share the goaltending duties with former Steelheads star netminder Blair Allison, 33, the Canadian who made 40 saves in McCall's 4-3 Friday night win. So it wasn't exactly Liebich's final appearance. But he wanted to put on a good show in his final home effort.

"It was a good game for me, but we needed it because the Suns are a good team and Zulie (Suns goalie Colin Zulianello) is a heckuva goaltender," said Liebich. "Of course you try to have a good game every time out, but really I have just enjoyed going out there and playing hockey."

After playing at Air Force Academy from 1988-92 with current Mountaineers Cal Ingraham, Bob Ingraham and Brett Gallagher, Liebich graduated in 1992 and served five years—ending as a captain stationed at Mountain Home. He didn't play hockey for eight years, but started up when he moved to Boise in 1999 and Ice World's arena opened.

Liebich joined up with the Mountaineers when the franchise started in 2003, and he backstopped McCall to its first national title in April 2004. His parents Don and Marcia Liebich moved to Indian Creek in Hailey from Colorado five years ago. Liebich himself is a self-employed restaurant distributor known as Sandellas.

It was too bad the Suns (16-8 overall, 3-5 in the last 8 games) drew a hot Liebich for his finale and also for theirs, but it made for great action around the net Saturday. The difference was McCall's battle-hardened defense limiting the Suns to one good opportunity at a time and letting Liebich do the rest.

"We had a lot of good chances, but with guys like (Rob) Dumas, (Troy) Edwards and (John) Howell back there on defense, you don't get a second whack at the puck," said Benson "And you can't score if you've got a stick in your armpit."

Reliable all winter, the Suns defense in front of Zulianello and John Bidon allowed 3.3 goals per game, about 0.5 goals per game fewer than last winter, and that probably accounted for the improvement in Suns wins from 11 to 16. With McCall, though, there's no margin for error.

Benson said, "We were giving them quality chances. I kept saying—McCall isn't going to hurt us in their zone and they aren't going to hurt us in the neutral zone. We just weren't covering their guys well in our zone. It was frustrating. But we started to play our game and creep back in both nights."

Two Suns defensive lapses and it was 2-0 McCall 10 minutes into Saturday's finale. Only the rock-solid play of Zulianello (8-3-0, 2.73 goals against) prevented the game from being 4-0 or 5-0 in the first. But Liebich wasn't the only player having a great outing. Suns top scorer Vilnis Nikolaisons was on top of his game.

Nikolaisons, 32, ended up winning his third Suns scoring title in eight years with the team, with 12 goals and 24 assists, both team highs. He didn't score a single point Saturday, but no Suns player had more of an impact. Nikolaisons turned nearly every touch of the puck into something positive and productive.

Three examples stood out and showed why Nikolaisons has surged into the #3 all-time Suns scoring spot with 333 points in eight seasons, within striking distance of Bobby Noyes (408) and Glenn Hunter (362), each with 18 seasons. With the good of the team always on his mind, Nikolaisons just makes things happen.

Suns' penalty killers led by forwards Nikolaisons, Scott Winkler and Ryan McDonald have enjoyed an outstanding season, allowing opponents to score only 14 goals in 107 power play attempts (13%). They haven't scored a lot shorthanded, but they've threatened—and that's how the Suns nearly got back into it.

Trailing 2-0 and playing shorthanded, McDonald and Winkler swept down the ice on an odd-man rush and McDonald whistled a shot high and wide. Twenty seconds later the puck slipped free in the neutral zone, just out of Nikolaisons' reach.

Or was it? With a diving lunge, Nikolaisons not only reached the puck, somewhat miraculously, but he also redirected it perfectly onto the stick of Ryan Enrico rumbling down the ice on a breakaway. Liebich made a stunning glove save. "Vilnis played great and Rico (Enrico) busted his butt all weekend," said Benson.

Behind 3-0 but on the power play, the Suns nearly made it 3-1 when Nikolaisons blasted a screened slapshot just past Liebich's ear. The Latvian wing doesn't always shoot when he should, but he places a high value on deception and in this case waited for the perfect time. The shot just went wide.

It was 4-1 after a Chris Warrington power-play blast from the point. That's when the Suns had their last, best chance with 19 seconds left in the second. And it was Nikolaisons, sending a perfect lead pass ahead to Enrico. Rico met his match with Liebich's sliding save at the corner.

Such moments are critical. Said Liebich, "It was a pretty even game. I just felt real good out there."

The hole was even deeper Friday night when the Suns fell behind 3-0 after six minutes. But Benson never lost confidence in goalie John Bidon (33 saves). Bidon held the high-scoring Mountaineers scoreless for the next 53 minutes while the Suns crept back into it on goals by Nikolaisons, Enrico and Ivars Muzis.

One Suns letdown enabled 27-year-old Derek Paget to score the game winner with only 16 seconds left in regulation time. Paget, a 6-0, 190-pounder from Kamloops, B.C., Canada has done it before. He scored 41 goals with 55 assists for the Idaho Steelheads from 2001-04. Unfortunately for McCall, he's too young to be playing in Arizona April 20-23.

McCall improved its lead to 13-6-1 in the three-year rivalry. The Suns have won only one of the last nine meetings between the teams. But the Suns season itself that reached its high-water mark with the 5-3 and 4-3 sweep at Jackson Hole was extremely positive, in Benson's view.

Benson said, "We had great teams coming in all year, and most will be back next year. That's a plus. We had three sellouts. And we didn't have a game cancellation. I'd really like to thank the fans and the community for all the support they've given us."

Sun Valley Suns 1 0 2 3
McCall Mountaineers 3 0 1 4

FIRST PERIOD—(1) McCall, Dave Ingraham (Pepi Ursillo), 1:43. (2) McCall, Brett Gallagher (Dave Ingraham, Kelly Ursillo), 5:21. (3) McCall, Bob Ingraham (Kelly Ursillo, Dave Ingraham), 5:53. (4) SV, Vilnis Nikolaisons 12 (Jamie Ellison, Kris Webster), 16:33.

SECOND PERIOD—No scoring.

THIRD PERIOD—(5) SV, Ryan Enrico 9 (Ryan McDonald, Paul Baranzelli), 2:26, power play goal. (6) SV, Ivars Muzis 7 (Nikolaisons), 16:04. (7) McCall, Derek Paget (Cal Ingraham, John Ursillo), 19:44, game-winning goal.

SHOTS ON GOAL—Sun Valley 8-11-15 for 34; McCall 13-12-12 for 37.

GOALIES—SV, John Bidon (33 saves, 5-4-0 record); McCall, Blair Allison (31 saves).

NOTES—Tonight's game-winning goal scorer Derek Paget, 27, is a 6-0, 190-pound wing from Kamloops, B.C. Canada. He played three seasons for the Idaho Steelheads from 2001-04, scoring 41 goals and 55 assists in 157 games including 33 points in 84 games during the Steelheads' WCHL Kelly Cup championship season of 2003-04....Things looked desperate for the Suns after the Mountaineers surged ahead 3-0 with only six minutes gone, but Sun Valley goalie John Bidon (33 saves) steadied the ship and held McCall scoreless for the next 53 minutes before Derek Paget's game-winning goal. Bidon also stopped a penalty shot, taken by McCall's Warren Moore late in the scoreless second period with the Mountaineers still leading 3-1.....McCall goalie Blair Allison, 33, from Golden, B.C., Canada, is certainly one of the best netminders the Gem State has ever seen. Allison played three seasons for the University of Maine from 1993-96, and backstopped the Canadian National Team to a 22-5-2 record in 1996-97. He bounced around the Florida minor league bushes before joining the Tacoma Sabercats and Idaho Steelheads and becoming one of the best in the WCHL. Allison was the Steelheads goalie from 2001-04, posting a 80-29-14 record in 127 games including a 23-12-6 (2.59) record in Idaho's Kelly Cup championship season of 2003-04....Not making the trip for the Suns were forward Frank Salvoni and defenseman Eric Demment, along with forwards Charles Friedman and John Miller....The Jackson Hole Moose pulled even with their record at 9-9 after sweeping the Suns 4-3 and 5-3 in Sun Valley March 10-11, but that was the high water mark of a disappointing Moose winter campaign. The Moose fell 6-5 and 12-4 to the visiting Minnesota Marauders March 17-18 at Snow King Center, and they barely managed a split with the North Carolina Generals in the Jackson Hole season finale March 24-25. According to the Jackson Hole News, the Moose won Friday's game on a Brian Hannafin shootout goal. The Moose squandered an 8-6 lead with two minutes left in regulation in Saturday's finale and lost in an overtime shootout. Denver University's Joe Casey broke his nose in Friday's game but returned Saturday to score four goals, but it wasn't enough for the Moose (10-12) to suffer their first losing season since 1997....For the third consecutive year, McCall's Mountaineers will compete in the USA Hockey Adult Men's Non-Check Over 30 Division national championships. This year's eight-team tournament is set for April 20-23, 2006 at Alltel Ice Den in Scottsdale, Arizona. McCall, which opens tournament play against Aspen (Colo.) April 20, is grouped in the American Conference with Aspen, the Chicago Sharks and Shattuck Pioneers from Scottsdale. In the National Conference are the defending champion Phoenix Senior Coyotes, Vero Beach (Fla.) Sharks, Lucent Technologies from Bloomfield Hills, Mich. and Molson Phoenix from Arizona. Two years ago, just six months after the team was formed, the Mountaineers won the Non-Check national tournament with a 5-0-0 record and 31-15 goals-against, beating the American Express Vultures from Jacksonville, Fla. 6-2 in the final game at Brandon, Fla. Last April, the Mountaineers went 2-2 at the Brandon tournament, falling 4-3 in overtime to the Chicago Sharks in the semi-final game. The Phoenix Senior Coyotes went on to prevail 4-3 over the Sharks....

SECOND PERIOD—(3) McCall, Paget (Bob Ingraham, John Howell), 6:41. (4) SV, Chris Warrington 10 (Ryan McDonald, Scott Winkler), 14:06, power play goal. (5) McCall, Paget (John Ursillo, Bob Ingraham), 18:08.

THIRD PERIOD—(6) SV, Scott Winkler 11 (Paul Baranzelli), 5:18, power play goal. (7) McCall, Phil McKinnon (unassisted), 19:14, empty net goal.

SHOTS ON GOAL—Sun Valley 9-14-12 for 35; McCall 17-13-14 for 44.

GOALIES—SV, Colin Zulianello (39 saves, 8-3-0 record); McCall, Mark Liebich (33 saves).

NOTES—Referring to the number of former Idaho Steelhead minor league hockey players on the team's roster, McCall's scoresheet slogan is, "McCall, where Steelheads don't retire, they just become Mountaineers!"....The Suns were very tentative in their defensive zone in the first period. McCall's lead could have been more than 2-0 if not for Suns goalie and former Steelheads netminder Colin Zulianello, who made some great saves and faced a slew of odd-man rushes throughout the contest. Zulianello stopped a Derek Paget breakaway midway through the period, and denied Phil McKinnon in close and Brett Gallagher and Jonn Howell from the point on a Mountaineers power play. Zulianello posted an 8-7-2 record and 2.74 goals against for the Idaho Steelheads during the 2004-05 season.....John Stevens picked up a penalty of frustration late in the first period—virtually wrestling little Cal Ingraham to the ice—but the Suns responded with a couple of great shorthanded tries. Ryan McDonald took a pass from Scott Winkler on a 2-on-1 but shot high and wide. Twenty seconds later Vilnis Nikolaisons lunged to poke the puck ahead to Ryan Enrico, who was stopped on a great glove save by Mark Liebich...."George Jacket" winner for the weekend, his first such honor all season, was Chris Warrington....After the game the Suns watched a Matt Gershater video of season highlights in their locker room at Manchester Ice and Event Centre. Then they went out for a late dinner at The Mill in McCall.....Suns forward lines were Vilnis Nikolaisons-Jamie Ellison-John Stevens, Ryan Enrico-Ryan McDonald-Scott Winkler, Bryan Winkler-D.W. Cook-Caleb Baukol, Gunnar Gladics-Trevor Thomas-Rian Timmons. Rotating were the five defensemen Chris Warrington, Ivars Muzis, Josh Jacobson, Paul Baranzelli and Kris Webster. Coach Chris Benson said he ran his top two lines really hard tonight in an effort to play catch up.....McCall's lines were Cal Ingraham-John Ursillo-Derek Paget, Dan Burgett-Brett Gallagher-Phil McKinnon, Dave Ingraham-Kelly Ursillo-Pepe Ursillo plus defensemen John Howell, Rob Dumas, Bob Ingraham, Warren Moore and Troy Edwards. The Ursillo brothers, John, Kelly and Pepi, come from Rhode Island, and they had to make a sad trek back East when their father Jack Ursillo died March 9 at the age of 64.....But the brothers act works well for the Mountaineers, since it's so hard to find good, quality players over 30 who can compete at a national tournament level. Said goalie Mark Liebich, "It's not easy. We've got to find guys who are over 30 and can still play the game and commit to the schedule.".....Probably the most traveled of the Mountaineers is 36-year-old defenseman Rob Dumas, a 6-0, 200-pounder from Spirit River, Alberta who played for 11 different minor league hockey teams from 1984-98 and spent three full seasons with the Steelheads from 1997-2000, scoring 36 goals in 187 games.....For the weekend the Mountaineers outscored the Suns 9-5 and out-pointed them on the scoresheet 24-13 led by Derek Paget (3 goals, 2 assists for 5 points), Dave Ingraham (2-2 for 4) and Bob Ingraham (1-3 for 4). Suns with 2 points apiece were Vilnis Nikolaisons, Ryan McDonald, Paul Baranzelli and Scott Winkler.... The Suns were 3-for-8 on the power play for the weekend and McCall 0-for-5. Weekend penalty minutes were Sun Valley 14, McCall 20.....The Suns enjoyed good success on the power play in four games against McCall this season, going 6-for-19. In contrast, McCall was 1-for-12 on the power play against the Suns penalty killers....The Mountaineers entertained a good crowd with several intermission attractions that the Suns might want to borrow if and when they get into a new rink. There was a timed puck shooting contest, two people in street shoes taking shots in opposite zones, and a youth hockey shootout contest with the little tykes skating in on a tiny goaltender. It was a youth hockey weekend in McCall. As fundraiser the fans purchased rubberized pucks and threw them over the plexiglass trying in vain to land them on a small center-ice marker. Then about 65 young people accompanied by bag-toting parents came on the ice to gather up the pucks and take their turn hamming it up on the ice surface.
