TODAY'S MATCHUP: This afternoon the Cyclones wrap up their brief two-game weekend swing through the Atlantic Division as they visit the Trenton Titans for the one and only time this season. Against the Titans/Devils since 2006, the Cyclones have compiled a 22-12-2-0 overall record, with 14 of those wins coming at the Sun National Bank Center.
SCOUTING THE TITANS: Trenton has struggled out of the gate, going 1-2-0 allowing 15 goals, which is second most in the entire ECHL thus far. They are led offensively by Dustin Cameron, who played with Gwinnett and Elmira last year. In the early going, Cameron has 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists). Denny Kearney and Randy Rowe are following closely in second place with four points apiece. Former Ohio State Buckeye netminder Dave Caruso has played in two of the Titans’ first three games, going 1-1-0 with a 6.00 goals-against average and an 82.4 save percentage. He allowed five goals but managed to earn the win in last night’s 8-5 win over the Florida Everblades.
About Last Night in Reading: The Royals used a two-goal third period as they rallied past the Cyclones for a 3-2, come-from-behind win in front of 3,957 at Sovereign Center on Saturday night. Ben Ryan and Adam Comrie each tallied their first goals of the season in a losing effort.
Haven’t I Seen You Before?: Today the Cyclones will face several familiar faces from a year ago. Besides Trenton’s returning players, Cincinnati will see six others who were somewhere else in 2010-11. Corey Syvret and Mitch Versteeg played with Kalamazoo while Andy Bombach and Randy Rowe were members of the Toledo Walleye. Dustin Cameron faced the Cyclones while with Greenville and Jordan Pietrus played with South Carolina.
Four-Score: Brian O’Hanley has climbed up another slot up the All-Time Games-Played chart. Today, he passes Stephane Madore for fourth on the list with 170 games played.
