C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 21 GP, 13-16-29, +16, 16 PIM
Mullin scored at 3:16 of overtime to lift the Force to a road win in division-leading Dubuque. He also added an assist on Fargoâ€™s other goal, yet the decision makers in Iowa decided he shouldnâ€™t be a game star. Two Saints were first and second star, respectively. Mullin has a five game point streak in which he has 10 points. He has 15 points in his last seven games.
Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 6 @ Sudbury Wolves 3
D Brock Beukeboom, SSM: 0-0-0, +3, 2 PIM (holding)
Season Totals: 30 GP, 0-5-5, -8, 46 PIM
Beukeboom scored seven times last year, but after 30 games the Soo captain is still looking for his first goal of the season.
