Wheeling, WV- The Cincinnati Cyclones (40-9-4-3) took down the Wheeling Nailers, 3-2 in overtime, on Saturday night. Forward Jesse Schultz and defenseman Andrew DeBrincat scored the goals in regulation, and forward Brady Vail scored the winner in overtime for the Cyclones. 

After the Nailers took a 1-0 lead at the 14:49 mark of the first on a goal from former Cyclone Winston Day Chief, Cincinnati tied the game up roughly three minutes later when Schultz threw a shot from the right side off a defender in front and in to tie the game, 1-1.  

The teams took the 1-1 tie into the locker room after the first, and in the second the Cyclones took the lead at the 13:38 mark of the frame when Vail sent a pass to DeBrincat who rifled a shot in while on the power play to give Cincinnati a 2-1 lead after two periods. 

The teams exchanged scoring chances in the third, however at the 13:24 mark, the Nailers tied the game, 2-2, when forward Mark Petaccio scored off the faceoff. The teams continued to trade offensive chances throughout the remainder of the period, however neither team was able to net the go-ahead goal and the game headed into overtime tied, 2-2. 

In the extra session, Cincinnati had a four-minute power play carry over from the third, and 1:45 in defenseman Arvin Atwal sent a pass to Vail in the slot, and he rifled a shot in to lift Cincinnati to a 3-2 overtime win. 

Cincinnati outshot the Nailers, 32-25 on the night, with goaltender Michael Houser stopping 23 in the win. The Cyclones close out their three-game weekend on Sunday afternoon in Kalamazoo against the Wings. Face-off is scheduled for 3:00pm ET.
