RAPID CITY, S.D. (December 14, 2013) – Sean Erickson, Konrad Reeder and Scott Wray provided a goal and an assist apiece as the the host Rapid City Rush defeated the Quad City Mallards 5-1 Saturday night and ended the Mallards' ten-game (6-0-4) regulation unbeaten streak.

The Rush never looked back after ripping off the game's first three goals. Scott Brannon opened the scoring in a goalmouth scramble at 8:57 of the first period. The Rush lead stretched to 2-0 when Erickson drove the puck home from the right point at 15:52 of the first.

At 8:32 of the second period Reeder buried a rebound to give Rapid City a 3-0 advantage. The Mallards got on the scoreboard for the first time with Matt Duffy's blast from the right point at 15:33 of the second.

5:15 into the third period Eric Giosa reestablished the three goal Rapid City lead by pumping the rebound into the gaping net after Reeder hit the goal post. Wray capped off the evening by scoring from point blank range at 15:18 of the third.

With the win, the Rush earned a split of their two-game weekend series with the Mallards, who Friday night scored a 2-0 victory in Rapid City.

RAPID CITY, S.D. (December 13, 2013) – Ty Rimmer made 48 saves on the way to his first career shutout and Matt Boyd and Gabriel Levesque provided a goal and an assist apiece as the Quad City Mallards blanked the host Rapid City Rush 2-0 Saturday night. The win extended the Mallards' regulation unbeaten streak to ten games (6-0-4) and halted Rapid City's five-game winning streak.

Boyd buried a rebound to give the Mallards 1-0 lead at 5:32 of the second period. Just under three minutes later Levesque doubled the Mallards' advantage by sweeping home a centering pass from Gergo Nagy, who assisted on both goals.

Rookie Rimmer made at least 15 saves in each period and was at his busiest while turning aside 17 shots in the final frame to consign the league-leading Rush to just its third loss of the season.  For their part, the streaking Mallards have gone ten games without a regulation defeat for the first time since winning ten consecutive United Hockey League games between March 20 and April 10, 2004.
