The IceMen were shutout Thursday 4-0 by the Fort Wayne Komets on St. Patrick’s Day at the Ford Center. The Komets scored once in both of the first two periods, and added two more goals in the third. The game was supposed to be played on green ice to celebrate the holiday, but the quality of the ice was not good enough to play on, creating an hour-long delay. The IceMen will, however, skate on green ice Saturday at the Huntington Center in Toledo when they take on the Walleye at 7:15pm EST.
A second period melee Thursday between the IceMen and Komets was the talk of the town at the water cooler Friday morning. An incident after a whistle that started between Fort Wayne goalie Pat Nagle and IceMen forward Vincent Dunn sparked a line brawl that resulted in seven misconducts and four ejections. The teams combined for 114 penalty minutes in the period and finished the game with 141. Dunn contributed 24 of those. The rookie from Hull, QC leads all ECHL rookies in penalty minutes (147) and fights (11). There were no suspensions handed out to either team.
Evansville faces Toledo one last time Saturday at 7:15pm EST. The Walleye lead the Eastern Conference with 87 points, are five points ahead of Manchester with two games in hand and ten games left in the regular season. Last time the IceMen went to the Huntington Center, the Walleye won 5-1, but Evansville is one of the few teams who have won in Toledo’s building. The IceMen stole a win 3-2 December 9 after trailing that game 2-0. While the IceMen had Friday off, the Walleye hosted Brampton and beat the Beast 5-0 in Toledo.
