SHOTS FROM THE POINT:
You, Again?: The last few weeks have been filled with a lot of familiar faces on the Cyclones' schedule, and this week is no different. This Wednesday night, the Clones welcome in the Evansville IceMen for the lone home game this week. The first 1,000 adults through the gates will receive an exclusive t-shirt! Plus, all fans 21+ can enjoy $1 beers! Then, Cincy will be back on the road for back-to-back divisional games in Kalamazoo and Evansville. Head over to Game Time Sports Bar & Grill to watch the action LIVE at the Coors Light Viewing Party! Friday's game is set to begin at 7:30pm while the puck drops on Saturday night at 8:15pm ET.
Power Down: The Cyclones have consistently improved their penalty-kill numbers of late. They have allowed just one power play goal on their last 19 kill attempts, good for 94.7%. That’s especially impressive considering they’ve faced two of the top eight power play units in that stretch. Cincinnati has amassed an 82.7% PK efficiency rate this season overall.
Record Setter: Last Friday, Cyclones forward Geoff Irwin netted a pair of shorthanded goals in a single game - becoming the first Cincy player since the team returned to ECHL play to accomplish that feat. On the season, the Clones rank tied for third with five shorthanded goals.
