Mallards Put on a Show in Front of Huge Crowd


Box Score

What a night in the Quad Cities on Saturday as the Mallards destroyed the visiting Denver Cutthroats 7-1 in front of 9,347 fans, the largest crowd at the i-Wireless Center in a decade (9.594 was the attendance on Jan. 19,2003) and the largest crowd to see a CHL game this season.

Denver started the scoring with A.J. Gale scoring his league-leading 24th goal of the season at the 10:41 mark.  Gale has four goals and two assists over his last three games.

Quad City would erupt back with the first of two natural hat tricks on the night.  The first came from Mickey Lang who scored at the 10:51 and 14:46 mark of the first period and at the 7:57 mark of the second period giving the Flock the 3-1 lead.

Anthony Perdicaro would make the score 4-1 at the 16:45 mark and the thumping was on.

In the third period, Mike Stinziani scored the second natural hat trick of the night 13:26 apart making the final tally, 7-1.

Lang was the hero of the night with a six point effort (3-3=6), the highest individual game total in the CHL this season and the most points in a single game since Feb. 22, 2012 when Rio Grande Valley’s Aaron Lee scored six points.

Stinziani finished the night with three goals and an assist and Mike Hellyer, the other member of that line, totaled four helpers.

John Murray made 29 saves improving to 8-8-4 on the season.  The win for Murray was his first since Dec. 21 and it ended a four-game personal losing streak.

Denver falls to 1-4-2 on their 12-game road trip that keeps them away from the Denver Coliseum until February.

The Flock ended a three-game slide with the win.
