Trailing by two goals in the third period Sunday against Cincinnati, the Evansville IceMen scored twice in the final seven minutes to force overtime, and eventually won the game 6-5 in a shootout. Rookie defenseman Curtis Leonard scored his first pro goal, before first-year forward Alex Wideman tied the game with less than four minutes to play. Wideman and Tyson Fawcett scored in the shootout, while Scott Greenham stopped both Cyclones shooters.



IceMen forward Sebastian Strandberg returned to the lineup Saturday in Toledo after missing 12 games with an injury. The native of Visingso, Sweden picked up two assists in Evansville’s 3-1 win against the Walleye, and added a highlight reel goal in Sunday’s 6-5 shootout win over Cincinnati.



Evansville hits the road for three games this week still in pursuit of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference. The IceMen are eight points behind the Quad City Mallards with nine games left in the regular season. The road trip starts in Independence, MO for the final meeting of the season with the top-ranked Missouri Mavericks on Wednesday at 7:05pm. The IceMen then face the Mallards one last time Friday at 7:05pm in Moline, IL, and wrap up the trip Saturday in Fort Wayne at 7:30pm EST.



The IceMen meet Missouri one last time Wednesday at 7:05pm at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena, where Evansville beat the Mavericks 2-1 in their last matchup February 21. Next to Tulsa, Evansville has had the most success against Missouri, with a record of 1-1-3 in five meetings. The Mavericks have already locked up the Central Division and top seed in the Western Conference playoffs, and reached 101 points with a win Sunday at Wichita. Missouri is without top scorer Jesse Root for the rest of the season, and went 2-2-0 last week.
