Sixteen-year-old Brett Budgell (2019 draft eligible) scored 1:14 into overtime to give Charlottetown the Game 3 victory in front of 3400+ fans at EastLink Centre, taking their first game of the series. The Armada played catch-up the whole game, falling behind by a goal twice before Drake Batherson (OTT, 2017 4th round pick) scored with a scant 55 seconds left in regulation to force the extra session. Islanders netminder Matthew Welsh (2018 draft eligible) stopped 37 of 39 Armada shots, as he continues to stymie the potent Armada offense. The series continues in Charlottetown Wednesday night with Game 4.
