The Thunder allowed just 12 Quad City shots Wednesday night for the 2-0 shutout. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier was credited with the primary helper on the power-play empty-net insurance goal with 61 seconds remaining. Wichita next plays a three-in-three this weekend against Missouri, Allen, and Tulsa.
After his Frozen Dome brilliance, Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 35 shots for the loss. Still waiting for that one cathartic moment when it all clicks for the big Russian.

Unfortunately, after climbing all the way back into the 4-4 tie, the team promptly coughed up the lead goal to Utica, erasing any hope at moral victories. At least Yanni Gourde, Tanner Richard, and Philippe Paradis continue to raise holy hell for the Crunch. That trio has 33 points in 11 games in the month of November. Kind of a Modin/Richards/St. Louis-esque trio there in how the line works.
