NOTES

GO GO POWER RANGERS: For a second straight game, the Rush power play was buzzing, and thanks to a pair of costly, yet dangerous, Oilers penalties, put the game away in quick fashion last night. The team finished 3/7 on the power play on Saturday, and has a power play goal in three consecutive games. Last season, the Rush scored 3+ power play goals on three occasions, winning all but one of those games. The season-high last year for most consecutive games with a power play goal was 6, spanning from New Year’s Eve to January 12th.

PARKS AND REC: For the first time in his ECHL career, Rush goaltender Tyler Parks held his opposition off the scoreboard, stoning all 31 shots he saw in Saturday’s win. Parks remains undefeated in regulation this season with a 2-0-1 record, also the first time in his ECHL career that he has a winning record in a season.

A NIGHT TO REMEMBER: Making his professional debut for the Rush last night was defenseman Eric Israel, and did he ever have a debut to remember. Israel finished his first pro game with 3 assists and a +1 rating, and fit into the Rush system seamlessly.  He joins Brady Olson (2008-09), Alex Szczechura (2014-15), Mark Miller, Zach Luczyk, Anthony Mastrodicasa, Barrett Kaib (2015-16), Geoff Fortman (2016-17), Jimmy DeVito, and Alex Baer (2017-18) to earn a point in their professional debuts with the Rush. Israel’s 3ast/3pts serve as the bets professional debut in team history.

BLINK AND YOU’LL MISS IT: The Rush scored in quick succession last night in the second and third periods, allowing them to separate from the Oilers. In the second period, Dane Birks and Brennan Saulnier scored 41 seconds apart, and in the third, Giovanni Fiore, Peter Quenneville, and Alex Rauter scored in a span of 1:18, with the first two goals coming 30 seconds apart, and the middle and last goals coming 48 seconds apart.

WE’RE GOING STREAKING!: Three players currently carry point streaks into tonight’s rematch against the Oilers, meaning they also have points in every game played this season thus far:

  • Giovanni Fiore - has goals in three straight, and points in four straight games (3g-2ast-5pts)
  • Peter Quenneville - has assists and points in four straight games (2g-4ast-6pts)
  • Cedric Montminy - has points in four straight games (1g-3ast-4pts)
