After I posted last night’s win against the Kalamazoo Wings… I learned the Cincinatti Cyclones won another Shoot-Out game this last Wednesday, December 5th. I have been sick with a very bad cold for a good portion of the week, and it took all my strength to get up to go to work.
This past Wednesday’s game as led me to proclaim that the Cyclones’ do know how to win games, and win another one that could have been easily lost… they did.
The Evansville Icemen saw the Cyclones come on strong with 17 shots on goal to their 6. The goals were in the Icemen’s favor though at the conclusion of the first period… 1-0. Shots were 7 for the windy team from Cincinnati to the frosty Icemen’s 10. This time, the score was tied at the end of two periods… 1-1.
The third period saw each team score a goal to be tied at 2-2 with shots being 11-10 in favor of the Cyclones. Nothing really happened during the overtime period as the score remained 2-2. Yes, we were headed to the first of two shoot-out games during the week for the Cyclones eventhough they led the shots on goal… 3-2.
The final score was 3-2 when the Cyclones scored another goal, and there you have it.
Tonight, the Cyclones will play the Icemen again at 8:15pm. Game recap will be in a day or two.
