ALLEN, Texas (March 26, 2014) – Mike Monfredo scored the game winning power play goal with three minutes and five seconds left in the third period and Thomas Heemskerk made 34 saves as the Quad City Mallards defeated the host Allen Americans 2-1 Wednesday night. With the victory, the fifth place Mallards (30-23-10, 70 points) not only halted their own three game losing streak but also ended the third place Americans’ (38-21-5, 81 points) four game winning streak and eight game regulation unbeaten streak.
Monfredo snapped a 1-1 tie with a one timer from the right wing circle late in the third after Jamie Schaafsma had backhanded home a power play equalizer for the Americans at 11:52 of the final frame.
Heemskerk was at his busiest in the third period, stopping 15 Allen shots to set the stage for Monfredo’s late heroics.
