MOLINE, IL – The Quad City Mallards picked up two key points in the Western Conference playoff race with a 3-1 win Friday over the Evansville IceMen at the iWireless Center.

The Mallards peppered IceMen goaltender Scott Greenham in the opening period, but Greenham made several key saves in keeping the game scoreless for the first 19 minutes of play. The Mallards, however, took a 1-0 lead with 54 seconds left in the frame on Quad City’s first power play, when Matt Carey blasted a one-timer into the net from the right circle.

Quad City extended its lead to 2-0 early in the second period, when Zach Pochiro snuck a backhander over Greenham’s glove 1:37 into the frame. Mallards goalie Brody Hoffman stopped all nine IceMen shots in the period and 17 through the first 40 minutes. Greenham made 11 saves in the middle stanza.

Evansville cut the lead in half, when Alex Wideman jammed in a loose puck at the side of the net out of a goal-mouth scramble midway through the third period. But the IceMen comeback fell short, as Olivier Archambault added an empty net goal for the Mallards in the final minute. Hoffman made 30 saves in the win, while Greenham stopped 34 in the loss.

The IceMen wrap up the week with a 7:30pm EST Saturday contest against the Fort Wayne Komets at Memorial Coliseum. It’ll be the first meeting between the two teams in Fort Wayne, since Evansville won 6-4 back on December 13.
