Cyclones Drown Walleye, 3-2

TOLEDO, Ohio (WKRC) -- Adam Brace's second period goal turned out to be the game-winner as the Cincinnati Cyclones (13-8-0-1) knocked off the Toledo Walleye (5-11-3-0) by a 3-2 final score in front of 3,635 at Huntington Center on Wednesday night.

Cincinnati struck first for the second straight night as Logan Shaw buried a rebound past Walleye netminder Hannu Toivonen (L, 29 saves, 0-2-0) at 5:19 of the opening period. Unfortunately, the lead would be short-lived as Toledo was able to cash in on a power play goal from David Gilbert at 12:35 to even things at one through 20 minutes of play.

The Walleye were able to pull ahead for the first time on the night just 1:56 into the middle frame when Marek Tvrdon banked a shot from along the goal line through Michael Houser (W, 30 saves, 5-5-0-1) - making it a 2-1 contest. The Cyclones answered back to tie it again just 24 seconds later when Wade Megan sniped home his team-leading 11th goal of the season after catching a terrific pass from John McFarland. Then, at 13:58, Adam Brace caught his own rebound and slammed the go-ahead strike - giving the visiting club a one-goal lead at the second intermission.

As the third period went along, Cincinnati's penalty kill was tested in a big way; they successfully killed off a pair of Walleye power plays in back-to-back fashion to remain ahead by a goal. And in the final minutes, Houser capped off a 14-save stanza to snuff out a would-be rally to give the Cyclones a 3-2 triumph.

After a Thursday practice day, Cincinnati will visit the Kalamazoo Wings on Friday night with a 7:30pm opening face-off. Fans can hear all the action of the game on the Cyclones Radio Network (CyclonesHockey.com, America One, Cyclones Mobile App) beginning at 7:00pm.

The Cyclones will return to the ice at U.S. Bank Arena on Tuesday, December 17 when they host the Kalamazoo Wings at 7:30pm!
