The Thunder power play was the difference in last night’s game as the visiting team went 4-for-5 on the man advantage. It was the most power play goals that the Mavericks have allowed to a team this season. The Mavericks will try to right the ship tonight as they get another shot at the league’s third-best power play unit.
Freschi Gets His First
Eric Freschi claimed his first professional goal when he beat Shane Starrett in the second period to put the Mavericks on the board. Freschi has now played in four games for KC with one point and is even on the plus-minus. The forward played college hockey at Cornell University for the past four seasons.
Pauly On The Board
Shawn Pauly claimed his first points of the season with a multipoint effort against the Thunder with a goal and an assist. Pauly’s goal brought the Mavs back to within one at 3-2 in the second period before the Thunder scored twice on the power play to extend its lead to three prior to the second intermission.
The Mavericks fell to 0-4 on the year when outshooting opponents with last night’s result. Shane Starrett been a big reason for the Thunder’s 2-0 record against Kansas City this season as the netminder has stopped 81 of 84 shots faced and has held the Mavericks without a power play goal in the two games.
The Mavericks will hold their annual Kids Day Game on Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. against Tulsa.
