52 Saves & 3 Goals Allowed By Doug Jamieson 

The hero of that historic first playoff win was FireWolves goalie Doug Jamieson who played the best game of his NLL career in the biggest moment of his career so far. Jamieson made unbelievable save after unbelievable save as Halifax threw everything they had at the Goalie of the Year candidate. 52 saves is Jamieson’s career high in the playoffs and it was the first win in the playoffs in his NLL career. Three goals allowed in a playoff game is the second lowest in NLL playoff history and has only been done three other times. The crowd chanted “Dougie!” throughout the game as they saluted the truly special performance that the long-time goalie of this franchise displayed on the FireWolves home turf.
