MOLINE, Ill. (November 29, 2014) – 8,714 fans- the Quad City Mallards' largest November home crowd in over 16 years- saw the host Mallards (7-5-5) fall to the Missouri Mavericks (7-9-0) 2-1 Saturday night when Andrew Courtney scored the power play game winner at 2:32 of overtime.  The Mallards earned one point for the sudden death loss.

Courtney tipped in a Josh Brittain (two assists) blue line blast to consign the Mallards to defeat.

After the Mallards' Logan Nelson swept the opening goal home from the right wing circle at 12:10 of the first period, Missouri's Chris Crane tied the score at one by converting Brittain's centering pass with just 51 seconds left in the first.  Neither team could break the deadlock over the final 40 minutes of regulation, setting the stage for Courtney to finish the contest in the extra period.

Tonight's attendance was the largest for a November Mallards home game since 9,207 watched the Mallards take on the Thunder Bay Thunder Cats on November 7, 1998.

The Mallards return to action Tuesday night on the road against the Mavericks.  The Mallards next play at home on Wednesday night, December 17 at 7:05 p.m. against the Brampton Beast.  Fans can get four tickets to Mallards Wednesday night home games for just $20.  After each Wednesday night home tilt, fans can join the Mallards at T.G.I. Friday's in Moline for a postgame party.

Tickets for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- including the December 17 contest- are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.  The box office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.  Tickets are available for $10, $16, $20 and $28.

MOLINE, Ill. (November 22, 2014) – Joe Perry scored two goals including the game winner and Evan Mosher made 34 saves as the host Quad City Mallards (7-3-3) defeated the Rapid City Rush (5-9-1) 3-2 Saturday night in front of 5,310 fans.  With the win the Mallards moved into first place in the EHCL's Central Division, extended their winning streak to three games, matched a league season best by stretching their regulation unbeaten streak to eight games (5-0-3) and completed a two-game weekend sweep of the Rush.

Perry tipped in his second goal of the night at 3:04 of the third period to give the Mallards a 3-1 lead.  That goal would stand up as the difference after Brandon Martell's wrist shot from the left point brought Rapid City back with one at 13:22 of the third.  Mosher and the Mallards held off the Rush the rest of the way, even after Rapid City pulled goaltender Etienne Marcoux for an extra attacker with 1:11 remaining in the game.

Perry opened the scoring from the left wing circle at 5:17 of the first period.  The Rush was shorthanded when Daniel Tetreault pounced on a rebound to even the contest at 9:28 of the first.

At 11:42 of the second period Johnny Rogic finished off a 2-on-1 rush to break the 1-1 deadlock and put the Mallards on top for good.  Mosher was at his busiest in the second, turning 16 shots to keep the Mallards in front.

Tonight's throng was first crowd of over 5,000 to attend a November Mallards home game since 5,010 saw the Mallards drop a 4-3 United Hockey League decision the Rockford IceHogs at the iWireless Center on November 4, 2007.

Earlier Saturday goaltender John Curry was recalled from the Mallards by the American Hockey League's Iowa Wild, forward Todd Fiddler was placed on the Mallards' reserve list and forward Logan Nelson and goaltender Parker Milner were activated from reserve.

The Mallards return to action tomorrow on the road against the Missouri Mavericks.  The Mallards next play at home next Saturday night, November 29, at 7:05 p.m. against the Mavericks.

Tickets for all remaining Mallards regular season home games- including next Saturday night’s tilt- are on sale now at the iWireless Center box office, Ticketmaster outlets, ticketmaster.com and Ticketmaster charge-by-phone toll free at 1-800-745-3000.  The box office is open weekdays from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and game days from 10:00 a.m. until the start of the second period.  Tickets are available for $10, $16, $20 and $28.
