Quad City scored twice Friday night against the Thunder on the power play – one was an empty-net goal in the final 90 seconds – and those goals are almost excusable. It’s difficult to defend five players with four.
When Ian Lowe was named Thunder captain early this month, he had scored in six straight games. That was in line with the qualities that made Lowe an easy choice for captain – he was picked more for what he does on the ice than what he says off of it.
The Thunder scored three goals in less than eight minutes during the second period and defeated the Missouri Mavericks 4-3 on Wednesday night in Independence, Mo., the second win in as many nights over the Mavericks.
