Icemen Use Two Shorthanded Goals to Rally Past Stingrays

JACKSONVILLE, FL- The Jacksonville Icemen defeated the South Carolina Stingrays thanks to a big third period penalty kill. Derek Lodermeier and Craig Martin had the shorthanded goals, while Martin also scored the game winning goal.

Icemen goaltender Tyler Wall played a great period as he has made a few good saves to keep Jacksonville right in the game. The Stingrays got on the board first as the Icemen had a turnover at their blueline which resulted in the puck going in the back of the net by Carter …..

The Icemen got off to a hot start in the period and created a lot of the offensive zone pressure. Early in the period, Ara Nazarian first a shot from the circle that hit off the post, but the rebound bounced directly to Vladislav Mikhalchuk who shoved the puck to tie it up the game at one goal apiece.

Things opened up in the third period, and the Stingrays got off to a quick start in the third as they scored two early goals to go up by two. Nate Pionk found a puck that wandered to his stick in the slot and immediately snapped shot for the marker.  Moments later, Cowlthorpe blocked a clearing attempt in the zone and rifled a shot past Icemen netminder Tyler Wally to make it a 3-1 Rays lead. 

Leading by two, South Carolina received a power play opportunity.  On the penalty kill, the Icemen scored two shorthanded goals, the first by Derek Lodermeier who put back a rebound off the backwall, and the second one by Craig Martin who put back his own rebound on the shortside to tie the game up at three goals apiece. The Icemen score two shorthanded goals on the same penalty kill, and now lead the ECHL with six shorthanded tallies.

Later in the third, the Icemen claimed the lead when Craig Martin scored another goal, off of a redirection to take the lead and go up by one goal. The Icemen locked down the remainder of the game and eventually went on to win the game 4-3.  

The Icemen are back in action Wednesday, November 24th at 7pm vs the Florida Everblades
