MOLINE, Ill. (March 8, 2014) – Ty Rimmer made 32 saves and Gergo Nagy, Mike Stinziani and Jordan Mayer all scored as the host Quad City Mallards blanked the Arizona Sundogs 3-0 Saturday night in front of a crowd of 5,513.  With the win the Mallards (28-18-8, 64 points) moved into a fifth place tie with the idle Brampton Beast and completed a two-game weekend sweep of the eighth place Sundogs (26-26-6, 58 points).

Nagy gave the Mallards the lead just one minute and eight seconds into the game by burying Matt Boyd’s centering pass.  Stinziani- who also had an assist- stretched the advantage to 2-0 at 4:35 of the first period with a shorthanded breakaway goal.

The gap widened to three when Mayer scored his first career goal in the second period of his second professional game.   Mayer finished off a 2-on-1 rush by sweeping home Jeff Lee’s goalmouth feed at 9:14 of the second.

Rimmer was at his busiest in the second period, stopping 15 Arizona shots the middle frame and making a series of fine saves before Mayer scored to keep the Sundogs from cutting the Mallard lead to one.
