A very SPECIAL team…

A crowd of 10,920 (second largest in team regular season history) was on hand last night to watch the Cyclones’ special teams overcome the Tolledo Walleye. The Cyclones threw two powerplay goals and a shorthanded empty netter up with a couple even strength goals to bring home the game 5-2. While Robert Mayer was only tested 22 times by the Walleye, he came up with some unbelievable acrobatic stops with his legpads. The defense came up big as well in the third period to help him out with Toledo turning on the burners late.

— Toledo was 0/5 on the Power Play. The Cyclones are now 34/34 on the PK though eight games. Chuck Weber’s special teams philosophy is that if you’re > 110%, you’re in pretty good shape. With the PK at 100%, the power play’s 20% showing puts the team well over his goal.
— The shorthanded empty net goal was a 6 on 4 for Toledo. For a two-man advantage, there was little dominance on that PP. The Cyclones controlled the puck for a majority of it.
— Captain Ehgoetz and Reid Cashman both netted their first goals of the season.
— Matt Pierce’s game winning goal was his seventh goal of the season. He’s third in the league behind Ryan Kinasewich of Utah and Chanse Fitzpatrick of Elmira.
— The Cyclones have only committed 111 PIM, which is by far the league’s lowest. This is a Chuck Weber team right here.
