Sunday afternoon, the IceHogs showed their fans that they can still dig deep and find the what it takes to get the win. They beat the Milwaukee Admirals, 2-1. The game appeared to be fairly evenly matched and it wasn’t until almost midway in the 3rd period before anyone scored. The IceHogs struck first with a goal by Sam Carrick at 8:34, followed by a goal by Jeremy Langlois at 19:40. It looked like the IceHogs’ netminder, Jeff Glass, was going to get a shut-out win, but the Admirals got by him with 9 seconds left in the game, making the final score 2-1.
It was Pucks & Paws Day at the BMO on Sunday, with local Animal Shelters on hand promoting animal rescue & pet adoption. During the 1st Intermission, fans were treated to an on-ice Dachshund Dog Race.
Shhhhhh! Don’t want to jinx it, but the IceHogs have won their last 3 games in a row. February is an extremely busy month for the Hogs, playing 14 games in a month that only has 28 days. Next home game is tomorrow, a mid-morning tilt against the Cleveland Monsters at 10:30am.
