Henault's OT Winner Lifts Icemen to Road Win at Greenville

GREENVILLE, SC- Louka Henault’s goal at 3:56 of overtime lifted the Jacksonville Icemen to a 2-1 victory over the Greenville Swamp Rabbits Thursday night at the Bons Secours Wellness Arena.  

The Icemen got off to a fantastic start in the first frame as Cristiano DiGiacinto scored from the left wing just 28 seconds into the contest to give the Icemen an early 1-0 lead. 

Just moments later, the Icemen’s Garret Cockerill had a big hit which led to him scrapping with the Swamp Rabbits Nauchbauer.  

Later in the period, the Swamp Rabbits got on the board as Dallas Gerads batted at a puck in the air and buried it to tie the game. 

The second frame was a back and forth one with each team getting some offensive zone pressure and some chances. Each team had a powerplay in this frame, however, neither team could capitalize on the man advantage. Jacksonville’s Charles Williams came up big a few times during the period as he made a few breakaways saves to keep it a 1-1 score after two.  

The third period was much like the second where there was a lot of back-and-forth play, however, Jacksonville’s was forced to kill off a five-minute major penalty and succeeded.  Williams continued to impress making multiple key saves to force overtime.  

In overtime, the Icemen went to the powerplay and rookie Louka Henault one-timed a shot from the high slot past the Swamp Rabbits goaltender Michael McNiven to seal the 2-1 win for Jacksonville. 

The Icemen head back home to host the Orlando Solar Bears on Friday, November 11 and the Trois-Rivieres Lions on Saturday. Both Games begin at 7:00 p.m.
