Woburn jumped out to a 3-0 first period edge before settling for a 3-3 tie against the Rockets, who are ranked in the top five in Massachusetts.
In January, Reading showed why it's ranked among the top teams in all of Massachusetts boys hockey when it blasted Woburn, 7-1. But on Wednesday night, the Tanners showed that they're not likely to go quietly come tournament time this month. Woburn pounced to a 3-0 lead in the first period on Wednesday night at Burbank Arena.
