The Cyclones were able to capture virctory in the third overtime game of this series against the Walleye behind goals from Mathieu Aubin, Garrett Wilson, Michael Pelech and David Pacan. Mathieu Aubin scored the game winning goal with 3 minutes left in the overtime period.
Cincinnati had a chance to sweep the Walleye at home in US Bank Arena last weekend unfortunately they dropped games four and five sending the series back to Toledo for game 6. The Cyclones seem to play better on the road for some odd reason, maybe the pressure isn’t as great. Either way the team has advanced to the next round.
The Gwinnett Gladiators swept the South Carolina Stingrays in their opening round series. The Gladiators could pose to be a serious challenge for the Cyclones. Cincinnati has had to take three games to OT, look for the Cyclones to score fast and often in the next round.
