POINT STREAKS

The Evansville IceMen earned a point Wednesday in a 2-1 overtime loss in Missouri against the Mavericks. After winning last Saturday 3-1 in Toledo and following it up with a 6-5 shootout victory Sunday against Cincinnati at the Ford Center, Evansville has picked up points in three straight games. The IceMen also have earned points in three consecutive road games, dating back to March 11.

 

GREENY IN GOAL

IceMen goaltender Scott Greenham stopped a season-high 42 shots in the 2-1 overtime loss Wednesday at Missouri. The 28-year-old was 19 seconds from Evansville’s first shutout of the season, but the Mavericks tied the game on the power play scored 1:32 into overtime. The Ottawa, ON native has started the last four games for the IceMen in goal, and is 2-1-1 in that span, with wins over Toledo and Cincinnati.

 

FINAL PLAYOFF PUSH

With the playoffs just over two weeks away, teams are still jockeying for positioning in the Western Conference race, and the race for the final spot is still up in the air. The IceMen are eight points behind the Tulsa Oilers for eighth place, with eight games remaining. Evansville is seven points behind Quad City for ninth and one point behind Indy for tenth, although the IceMen have two games in hand on the Fuel.

 

LAST TRIP THROUGH THE QUAD

In what is undoubtedly the biggest game of the season, the IceMen meet the Quad City Mallards for the final time. The last time Evansville traveled to Moline, IL, the IceMen defeated the Mallards 3-2 on December 30 at the iWireless Center. In fact, the road team has won every meeting this year, as Quad City won all five games at the Ford Center. The Mallards head to Wichita to take on the Thunder on Saturday and Tuesday, before traveling to Missouri Wednesday.

 

FIRST MEETING SINCE THE MELEE

The IceMen and Fort Wayne Komets meet for the first time since last Thursday’s melee at the Ford Center resulted in a combined 141 penalty minutes and five ejections. The Komets won the St. Patrick’s Day tilt 4-0 to even the season series at two games apiece with two contests remaining. Evansville returns to Memorial Arena in Fort Wayne for the first time since the IceMen beat the Komets 6-4 on December 13. Forward Tyson Fawcett led the way for the IceMen that night with his first career hat trick.

 

AUTISM AWARENESS NIGHT – APRIL 1ST

The IceMen only have two home games remaining at the Ford Center. Evansville hosts the Cincinnati Cyclones on Friday, April 1 at 7:05pm on Autism Awareness Night. Representatives from Inspiring Autism Spectrum Families will be in attendance and have a booth on the concourse with information to raise awareness, and the first 1,000 fans through the gates will receive bandanas.

“MEMORIES WEEKEND” – HOME FINALE – APRIL 2nd

Evansville plays its final game at the Ford Center Saturday, April 2 at 7:05pm against the Tulsa Oilers. As a part of “Memories Weekend”, the IceMen will celebrate memories of the organization’s eight years in Evansville from the AAHL days, to the CHL to the ECHL, including the team’s Davidson Cup Championship in 2010. The first 1,000 fans into the arena will receive team autographed mini goalie sticks, presented by TRCI.
