QUENNEVILLE STRIKES FOR FOUR AGAINST FORMER TEAM

Teams Conclude Series on Saturday Night

 

Rapid City, SD-  The Cincinnati Cyclones (22-9-6-0) fell to the Rapid City Rush, 5-2, on Friday night. Forwards Jesse Schultz and Darik Angeli scored the goals for the Cyclones, who see their two-game winning streak come to an end.  

After the Rush took a 1-0 lead 2:26 in on a goal from former Cyclone Peter Quenneville, Cincinnati tied the game 44 seconds later when forward Brady Vail sent a feed from behind the goal line to Schultz, and he slammed the puck home to pull the Cyclones even, 1-1.

The momentum was short-lived, however, as at the 6:38 mark, Quenneville added one more, this time on the power play, to put Rapid City back up, 2-1. 

The 2-1 Rush lead held up throughout the remainder of the first, and in the second Quenneville completed his hat trick just 2:48 into the frame to give Rapid City a 3-1 lead that remained into the third period.

Cincinnati counterpunched 6:45 into the third when Angeli brought the puck into the offensive zone, skated around the defense and lifted a backhander in past Rush goaltender Alex Sakellaropoulos to pull Cincinnati to within one once again, 3-2.

That is all the offense the Cyclones were able to muster, as Quenneville added one more midway through the frame, and forward Brennan Saulnier buried an empty-netter from his defensive zone to seal Rapid City’s 5-2 win. 

Cincinnati outshot the Rush, 34-27, with goaltender Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen stopping 22 in the loss. The teams wrap up their three-game series on Saturday night at 9:05pm ET
