Dana Tyrell had an assist in his debut appearance with Banska Bystrica, which gradually worked its way to a 3-0 lead in the third period that held up against Zilina, which only broke the shutout in the final minute of regulation. Tyrell was on the ice for all of his team's goals and, though he wasn't credited on the statsheet, was even a factor in the home squad's second goal as he parked out front of the opposing net and provided a timely screen as teammate Clayton Stoner unleashed a blast from above the circles. Banska Bystrica (12-13-4-1, 45 PTS), which boasts NHLers Tanner Glass, Michal Handzus and Stoner in addition to Tyrell, next faces Nitra (15-8-5-2, 57 PTS), currently the second-place team in the league standings, at home on Sunday.
