Cincinnati Comes from Behind During Wild Third Period

 

Cincinnati, OH- The Cincinnati Cyclones (30-21-2-0) took down the South Carolina Stingrays, 2-1 in overtime, on Wednesday night. Forward Justin Vaive netted the lone Cyclones goal in regulation, while forward Brandon McNally lit the lamp in overtime for the game-winner.

After a scoreless opening period, South Carolina netted the game’s first goal when defenseman Paul Geiger lit the lamp on the power play to put the Stingrays ahead, 1-0, 13:09 into the second.

The 1-0 Stingrays’ lead held up throughout the remainder of the second, and in the third the Cyclones tied the game 5:25 into the frame while on a delayed penalty, when forward Mike Barrett threw a shot towards the net that was deflected in by Vaive to even the game, 1-1.

The physicality ramped up in the third period as well, as the sides exchanged hits along with extra-curriculars after whistles. Each side also had quality scoring chances, however neither side managed to break the 1-1 tie, thus forcing overtime.

In the extra session, Cincinnati netted the game-winner 3:11 in, when forward Jesse Schultz slid a pass up to McNally, and he hammered a shot off the crossbar and in from just inside the blueline to send the Cyclones off to a 2-1 overtime win.

The Cyclones were outshot, 23-18 on the evening, with goaltender Jonas Johansson stopping 22 in the win. Cincinnati continues their four-game home stand on Friday night against the Indy Fuel. Face-off is scheduled for 7:35pm ET.
