Ducks win in shootout over Thunderbolts

The Ducks saluted our Veterans before the dropping the puck for a Veterans day matinee game with the Evansville Thunderbolts at the Point Mallard Ice Complex.

Cody LaValley opened the scoring with his second of the year at 4:34 of the first period helped by Revniaga and Knopf.  Evansville evened it up and took the lead at 19:16 of the third period, but couldn’t stop the Ducks.  Point Mallard pulled the goalie and 15 seconds later Ian Precht answered with his third of the year assisted by Jake Cox and Brandon Knopf.

The showdown continued for six round into the shootout, until Cameron Hamblett put it away.  Sam Gartner was in net for the Ducks today and stopped 35 shots enroute to his second win of the season.
