INDEPENDENCE, MO – The Evansville IceMen had the Missouri Mavericks on the brink of their first shutout of the season Wednesday at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena, but the Mavericks scored a power play goal with 19 seconds left to force overtime and won the game 2-1 just 1:32 into the extra period.

Missouri outshot Evansville 11-7 in a scoreless first period, as the Mavericks were unsuccessful on the only power play of the frame. IceMen goalie Scott Greenham stopped 11 shots, and Mavericks goaltender Josh Robinson stopped seven attempts.

Mavericks defenseman C.J. Ludwig was given a game misconduct midway through the second period for an open-ice elbow to the head of IceMen forward Ryan Penny, who did not return. Late in the frame, Jordan Sims broke the scoreless tie, when he snapped a power play goal over Robinson’s glove into the top of the net with 2:19 left.

The IceMen fought hard to preserve the 1-0 lead through the third period, but with a late power play, Missouri’s Darian Dziurzynski spoiled the shutout with a goal on the doorstep with 19 seconds to play. In overtime, after the Mavericks failed to convert on the second part of the double-minor, Josh Holmstrom ripped a wrist shot under the cross bar at even strength to give Missouri its fourth overtime win over the IceMen this season.

Greenham stopped a season-high 42 shots in the overtime loss, while Robinson stopped 21. With the single point, Evansville moves within seven points of the Quad City Mallards for eighth place in the Western Conference standings with eight games remaining.

The IceMen next travel to Moline, IL for the final meeting with the Quad City Mallards at 7:05pm CST Friday at iWireless Center. The team wraps up the week with a 7:30pm EST Saturday contest against the Fort Wayne Komets at Memorial Coliseum.
