    Kenton Miller notched five points (2g, 3a) and Ian Young scored 1:21into overtime as the Elmira Jackals (15-41-7-1) defeated the Wheeling Nailers (31-25-8-0), 6-5, in overtime Sunday at First Arena. It was the final match between the longtime rivals and the Jackals held five one-goal leads in regulation before finally getting the game-winning goal in overtime.  The Jackals played a strong 5-on-5 first period and survived four Wheeling power plays to exit the first period with a 2-1 lead. Casey Thrush opened the scoring 4:47 into the first period on a terrific rush down the left wing. He sped down the wall and then while getting held he got a shot on goal and buried his own rebound to give the Jackals a 1-0 lead on a delayed penalty. The Nailers then got four straight power plays during the course of the period and they finally converted on the fourth one. Kale Kerbashian received a pass in the slot and ripped a shot past Andy Iles at 16:18 to tie the game 1-1. Elmira had a quick response to go back up by one late in the first. Kenton Miller skated into offensive zone and dropped a pass to Nathan Moon, who fed it to Sebastien Sylvestre, who tipped it past Doug Carr to give the Jackals a 2-1 lead after the first. The teams continued to trade goals in the second period. Garrett Meurs started it at 4:38 when he picked up a loose puck near the top of the left wing circle and wristed one past Iles to tie the game. The Jackals took another lead, this one 3-2, when Sylvestre scored on a breakaway at 10:03. He received a pass from Kenton Miller and went on goal against Carr. As he approached the crease, Sylvestre gave Carr a head fake to get him down before snapping a shot up high to make it 3-2.  Wheeling again responded with a Kevin Schulze goal at 16:03, but the 3-3 tie lasted for just 21 seconds before Elmira completed a perfect odd-man rush. Nathan Moon moved the puck into the offensive zone, dropped a pass for Ian Young who gave it right back to Moon at the right circle. There, Moon fired a quick pass to Miller who buried his 26th goal of the season at 16:24 to give the Jackals a 4-3. The Jackals couldn't hold that lead either as the Nailers tied the score 4-4 just over two minutes later. Gage Quinney, who scored a hat trick in Elmira Wednesday night, found a rebound near the bottom of the right circle, tying the game heading into the third period. Miller again put the Jackals in front at 5:07 of the third period, ripping a bottom of the right circle shot past Carr to give the Jackals a 5-4 lead. He received a pass from Moon, fanned on an initial shot then roofed the second chance for his 27th goal of the season. Again Wheeling tied the game on a Kale Kerbashian goal at 8:39, which eventually sent the game to overtime. In overtime, Kyle Rankin began a 2-on-1 rush with Ian Young. Rankin skated to the left wing circle and then sent a pass across to Young, who hammered a one-timer into the back of the net for the overtime game-winning goal at 1:21 of overtime to give the Jackals the 6-5 win.

    Chuck Berry, Rock & Roll Pioneer, Dies At 90

    By Elmira Telegram,
    Chuck Berry, who with his indelible guitar licks, brash self-confidence and memorable songs about cars, girls and wild dance parties did as much as anyone to define rock ’n’ roll’s potential and attitude in its early years, died on Saturday. He was 90. The St. Charles County Police Department in Missouri confirmed his death on its Facebook page. Mr. Berry died at his home near Wentzville, Mo., about 45 miles west of St. Louis. The department said it responded to a medical emergency and he was declared dead after lifesaving measures were unsuccessful. While Elvis Presley was rock’s first pop star and teenage heartthrob, Mr. Berry was its master theorist and conceptual genius, the songwriter who understood what the kids wanted before they knew themselves. With songs like “Johnny B. Goode” and “Roll Over Beethoven,” he gave his listeners more than they knew they were getting from jukebox entertainment. His guitar lines wired the lean twang of country and the bite of the blues into phrases with both a streamlined trajectory and a long memory. And tucked into the lighthearted, telegraphic narratives that he sang with such clear enunciation was a sly defiance, upending convention to claim the pleasures of the moment. Letter to Berry form Voyager spacecraft crew In “Sweet Little Sixteen,” “You Can’t Catch Me” and other songs, Mr. Berry invented rock as a music of teenage wishes fulfilled and good times (even with cops in pursuit). In “Promised Land,” “Too Much Monkey Business” and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man,” he celebrated and satirized America’s opportunities and class tensions. His rock ’n’ roll was a music of joyful lusts, laughed-off tensions and gleefully shattered icons. Mr. Berry was already well past his teens when he wrote mid-1950s manifestoes like “Roll Over Beethoven,” “Rock and Roll Music” and “School Day.”   Read more about Berry at https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/18/arts/chuck-berry-dead.html
