MOLINE, Ill. (January 7, 2015) – Mario Lamoureux scored on the power play at 1:53 of overtime and the host Quad City Mallards (17-12-5) recovered after surrendering a 3-0 third period lead to defeat the Wichita Thunder (16-11-6) 4-3 Wednesday night and break a tie with the Thunder for second place in the ECHL's Central Division.

Lamoureux- who also had an assist- ended the contest with a one timer from the right wing circle.

The Thunder forced overtime by erasing a three-goal deficit in just two minutes and 29 seconds late in the third period.  R. G. Flath buried a rebound to trigger the Wichita rally at 13:18 of the third.  Todd Hosmer cut the gap to one in a goalmouth scramble at 14:50.  A mere 57 seconds later Ian Duval tied the score from the left wing circle.

The Mallards built their three goal cushion over the opening 40 minutes.  Justin Fox scored twice in the first period.  Fox buried Antti Pusa's goalmouth feed 3:27 into the game and then rifled the puck in under the crossbar from the left wing circle with just 30 seconds left in the period.  Todd Fiddler jammed in the third Mallard goal at 18:07 of the second period.

The Mallards and Thunder meet again Friday night at 7:05 p.m. at the iWireless Center.  Friday also brings the return of $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night presented by 97X and MetroLINK.  Fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs and beers from iWireless Center concession stands during all Friday home games.  97X will follow in the spirit of the evening by presenting hot dog-themed intermission entertainment.

MOLINE, Ill. (January 2, 2015) – Josh Brittain's second goal of the game broke a 2-2 tie with just 1:55 left in the third period and the Missouri Mavericks (14-13-5) went on to defeat the host Quad City Mallards (16-11-5) 4-2 Friday night.  Despite the defeat the Mallards remain in second place in the ECHL's Central Division.

Brittain scored the game winner from the right point and set the stage for Chris Crane to score the clinching empty net goal with just over a minute remaining after the Mallards had battled back from 2-0 down to tie the score.  Mario Lamoureux pounced on a rebound for the equalizer at 9:34 of the third.  The Mallards first got on the scoreboard when Antti Pusa buried Justin Fox's centering pass at 14:26 of the first period.

The Mavericks built their 2-0 lead with first period goals from Brittain and Jared Brown.  Brown's drive from the top of the left wing circle opened the scoring at 6:56 of the first.  The Mavericks were on the power play when Brittain doubled the advantage from the doorstep at 11:29.

WICHITA, Kan. (January 3, 2015) – R. G. Flath broke a 2-2 tie with 4:30 left in the third period and the host Wichita Thunder (16-10-5) held on to edge the undermanned Quad City Mallards (16-12-5) 3-2 Saturday night and move into a tie for second place in the ECHL's Central Division with the Mallards.

Flath scored the game's first even strength goal off a give-and-go with Danick Gauthier to cap off a third period Thunder rally.  The Mallards entered the third on top 2-1 but that lead disappeared when Kenton Miller tipped in Wichita's second power play goal and the fourth of the game at 2:16 of the third.

The Mallards had forged in front with successive second period man advantage goals.  Joe Perry tied the game at one by rifling the puck in from the left wing circle at 7:36 of the second.  The Mallards took the lead when Todd Fiddler- who assisted on Perry's goal- pounced on a rebound at 15:34.

The Thunder was up 5-on-3 when Ian Lowe one timed the opening goal from the high slot at 17:56 of the first period.

The Mallards dressed just 14 skaters Saturday evening due to injuries and illness.

The Mallards next play at home next Wednesday evening at 7:05 p.m. against Wichita.  Fans can purchase four tickets to each Mallards Wednesday home game this season for just $20.  In addition, after each Wednesday home contest, fans can join the Mallards at T.G.I.

MALLARDS RALLY FOR WILD 7-5 WIN IN FORT WAYNE PDF Print E-mail

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (December 29, 2014) – Pearce Eviston- who broke a 5-5 third period tie- Todd Fiddler and Mario Lamoureux scored two goals apiece as the Quad City Mallards (15-10-5) ripped off three unanswered goals in the third on the way to a wild 7-5 victory over the host Fort Wayne Komets (21-6-1) Monday night.

Eviston delivered the game winner by pouncing on a rebound just a minute and seven seconds after Fiddler broke in alone to even the score at five at 6:54 of the third.  Lamoureux's empty net goal finished off the Komets with just five seconds left in the contest.

The Komets took the lead into the third after Shawn Szydlowski cut into the slot and fired his second goal of the night into the top corner to put Fort Wayne on top 5-4 with just 1:39 left in the second period.  The Mallards had erased a 4-2 deficit with back-to-back goals from Joe Perry and Lamoureux in the second.  Perry's shot from the top of the left wing circle broke between Fort Wayne goaltender Roman Will's pads and narrowed the margin to a single goal at 14:29 of the middle frame.  Just over a minute and a half later Lamoureux jammed in the tying goal from the doorstep.

The Komets had seemingly taken control in the first period by roaring back with four straight goals after falling behind 2-0.  The Mallards were on the power play when Eviston opened the scoring from the left wing circle at 2:29 of the first.  Fiddler buried Evan Haney's centering pass to double the lead at 6:25, but that strike seemed to awaken the Komets, who responded just nine seconds later with Eric Faille's breakaway goal.  A mere 14 seconds after that, Gabriel Beaupre's long range drive tied the game.  At 14:42 Szydlowski swooped around a checker and snapped home the tie breaker from the slot.  Brett Perlini's one timer stretched the Komet lead to 4-2 a minute and two seconds later.

The Mallards earlier Monday signed Larkin Saalfrank as an emergency back-up goaltender.  Saalfrank, 23, played one game last season for the Komets.  The 6' 0", 185-pound Fort Wayne native arrived after Mallard goaltender Parker Milner signed a professional tryout agreement with the American Hockey League's Iowa Wild Monday.

The Mallards return to action Wednesday night on the road against the Evansville IceMen. The Mallards next play at home Friday evening at 7:05 p.m. against the Missouri Mavericks.  Friday also brings the return of $1 Dog/$1 Beer Night presented by 97X and MetroLINK.  Fans can enjoy $1 hot dogs and beers from iWireless Center concession stands during all Friday home games.  97X will follow in the spirit of the evening by presenting hot dog-themed intermission entertainment.
