Notes

Pregame:

  • Hunter Miska leads the team out and onto SAP Center's ice for warm-ups. Coming into the night with a 6-1-0 record, he's making his ninth start of the season.
  • Adam Clendening is playing in his 300th professional game.
  • There have been no apparent changes made to the lines the team used in Tuesday night's 5-2 victory over Ontario.

First Period:

  • Hunter Miska turns away all 13 of San Jose's first period shots, including a pair of Grade-A chances.
  • Michael Bunting, with just under two minutes left in the frame, hounds a broken play in front of San Jose's net and buries his fifth goal of the season to give the Roadrunners a 1-0 lead. He's got points in three straight games, and five (2G, 3A) in the team's last five.

Second Period:

  • The Roadrunners take five penalties during the second period, and are able to kill off four of them, including a full two-minute five-on-three situation. 
  • San Jose outshoots Tucson by a 16-7 margin.
  • Hunter Miska has been magnificent - his 15 saves in the second period is the most by any goaltender against the Barracuda in a single period this season.
  • Lawson Crouse can't execute on a shorthanded breakaway late in the frame.

Third Period:

  • With under two minutes left to play in regulation, Mike Sislo jams a loose rebound home for his seventh goal of the season, giving the Roadrunners a 2-1 lead with 1:34 left to play.
  • Seconds later, Michael Bunting, left alone, utilizes time and space to give the Roadrunners a 3-1 lead with 1:03 left to play.

Highlights

  • Michael Bunting buries his fifth goal of the season to give the Roadrunners a 1-0 lead late in the first period.

  • Mike Sislo jams home a loose puck in the crease to give the Roadrunners a 2-1 lead with 1:34 left to play.

  • Michael Bunting, with plenty of time and space, buries his second goal of the evening to give the Roadrunners a 3-1 lead with 1:03 left to play in regulation.
