ECHL/USHL Game Night 12/29

Highlights:

  • Cunti continues hot start
  • Sea Wolves score 5 against ECHL's best

Luca Cunti continues to make up for lost time as he tallied the game-tying goal unassisted in Chicago's 6-4 victory over Green Bay. He also assisted on the power-play empty netter that sealed the game indicating that Cunti is already being used help preserve a one goal lead in the last minute of a game.

Green Bay 4 @ Chicago 6
F Luca Cunti: 1-1-2; +1; 0 PIM; 6 SOG

Chicago plays Ohio on New Years Eve.

The reassignment of Stan Lascek to Norfolk didn't seem to stunt Mississippi's offense as they racked up 5 goals against the ECHL's best Texas Wildcatters. The problem is that Morgan Cey allowed 10 goals as the Catters doubled up the Sea Wolves in Biloxi on Saturday night. Perhaps the arrival of Marc Denis in Norfolk will have a trickle down effect with either [ryan-munce]Ryan Munce[/url] or Jonathan Boutin expected to be reassigned to the Gulf Coast. With both Marek Kvapil and Brandon Elliott still out with injuries, no Lightning prospects were in Saturday night's tilt against Texas.
