Wednesday Gameday in Puckopolis...

Happy Gameday!  We're just a handful of hours away from another battle againt the Kalamazoo Wings at U.S. Bank Arena!  Here's some info you need to get yourself ready...

 

- It's Country Night!  So be sure to dress in your best country attire if you're going to make it down to USBA with us!

 

- Rob Slaney is back from Milwaukee...which is a big boost up the middle for Cincy.

 

- Kalamazoo is going to be quite depleted, roster-wise.  They are still without Brandon Svendsen, Dean Strong, Kory Karlander, and now Steven Anthony.  Plus, Darryl Bootland was suspended for two games over the weekend, so he'll miss tonight's game as well.  Bottom line...the matchups are certainly favoring Cincinnati.

 

- Brian Foster will once again go in net for the Clones tonight...he's won three of his first four starts and shuout the Express on Saturday night.

 

- The Cyclones need to find a way to get on the board early...the Wings are just 5-5-0-1 when their opponents score first while the Clones are 7-4-0-1 when they strike first.  Especially against a depleted K-Zoo lineup, grabbing an early lead is huge!

 

- We'll get our first chance to see Jeff Foss since mid-November as he has finally returned from a concussion.  He's a big asset on the blue line for the Clones, especially with the absence of Garrett Suter and Taylor Aronson (who are both on the IR).

 

- Puck drops at 7:30pm!!  If you can't make it, you can listen to the game LIVE on the Cyclones Radio Network starting at 7:15pm!
