SHOTS FROM THE POINT:
And So It Begins: With a preseason series against Wheeling wrapped up, the Cyclones set their sights on the regular season opener against the Toledo Walleye. A year ago, the ‘Clones dominated their I-75 rivals - taking seven of the ten meetings and outscoring them by a combined 41-30 margin. Saturday marks the first time since returning to ECHL play that the teams have met to open a campaign.
Looking for a Strong Start: Cincinnati has opened the season strongly over the past couple of seasons. A win this Saturday would be the third-straight season opening triumph. Last year's club won its first seven games, while in 2012-13, they went unbeaten in regulation through nine contests.
