IceMen freeze Sundogs in 3-1 win
The Daily Courier

Three unanswered goals in the second period was the difference Sunday evening as the Evansville IceMen topped the Arizona Sundogs for a 3-1 win at the Ford Center in front of a crowd of 5,846 in Evansville, Ind.

The loss caps off Arizona's (16-27-7) second straight three-game weekend and leaves the Sundogs tied with Laredo for sixth place in the Berry Conference.

Evansville (32-13-4) extended their Turner Conference lead over Fort Wayne to five points.

Trailing 1-0 entering the second period, Evansville scored three unanswered goals to take over the game. Todd Robinson started things 2:18 into the frame, tapping in a loose puck in the goal crease for his 17th goal and CHL-leading 71st point of the season. Mark Cody made it a 2-1 lead for the IceMen at 8:07 from the front of the net off Nick Lindberg's centering pass and Sean O'Connor added a power play goal with 4:14 left in the period.

Arizona opened up the scoring on a power play goal by Kevin Petovello midway through the opening period.

Mike Spillane started his third straight game for the Sundogs and took the loss despite 36 saves. Brian Gillis earned the win for the IceMen, stopping 25.

The Sundogs went 1 for 2 on the power play, while Evansville scored in their only man-advantage chance of the game.

The Sundogs are 12 points out of fourth place and the final playoff spot in the Berry Conference with 16 games left in the regular season.

Arizona leads the league in goals allowed with 185 and has the fewest wins with 16.

The Sundogs continue their season-long 11-game road trip with another game against Evansville Wednesday morning.

Game time is slated for 9:30 a.m.

Arizona is 3-5 in their last eight games.

Well, the magic number for the Sundogs to be eliminated from the playoffs is 10. Meaning, any combination of Tulsa wins and Sundog loses equaling 10 sends the Sundogs golfing for the summer. Hopefully this season is the final nail in the coffin for the lousy coaching staff (Marco and Chris). But I wonder if it is. Marco has one more year on his $100,000 contract. Is the ownership willing to eat his last year with the hope of making over 10 times that amount by putting more people in the seats with the hiring of a coach, GM, and President with NHL experience and connections? The ownership did a decent job in getting sponsorships this season but how long will it last if the coaching situation continues the status quo? The best of all scenerios would be for the team to disband. Then get new ownership with NHL experience/connections and put a team into the ECHL with a real NHL affiliation. After that pathetic excuse for an all-star game, I lost all respect for the CHL.

Whew!!! Dogs were out of the cellar for 24 hours. I was feeling such anxiety not being in last place. Friday's game was awesome then the defense left for the weekend. Over 5800 fans were at yesterday's game in Evansville, now that's impressive. 16 wins this season, 16 games to go, need I say more.

Article comment by: FIRE THE COACH, ALREADY!

This excuse of a coach hasn't proven anything. The only time he has won is when Eric Lacroix was on the bench with him. Hmmm? What does that tell you? If the whole arena was filled with 215 fans then this would be acceptable, but its NOT!!!

Seems the teams' performance is predictable, fans have given up on this season. Too bad ,we have such a nice arena, supportive fans (if they have confidence in the owners and coach) Hope they get it together soon, not much time left before recovery is impossible
