Almeida scored the sudden-victory goal with 1:14 left in the overtime period to lift the visiting Eagles to a 2-1 win over the Big Green in Hanover, N.H. on Sunday. He assisted on Matt Price's third-period score in the team's 5-1 home win over the Crimson two nights earlier.
The Springfield, Mass., resident has recorded six points - two goals and four assists - in 13 games.
