About Game 1 in Gwinnett: Rookie David Pacan notched his second game winning goal of the playoffs as the Cyclones rallied from behind to defeat the Gladiators by a 3-2 final score in front of 3,517 at Gwinnett Center. It was the third time in the postseason that Cincinnati erased a deficit to win.



SHOTS FROM THE POINT:

Home Sweet Home: With both teams earning a win this past weekend in Gwinnett, the Cyclones and Gladiators will play the remaining games of this series at U.S. Bank Arena. Game 3 will be this Wednesday night featuring $1 Beers. Then on Friday, the team’s will meet in Game 4 which will offer fans 21+ $3 Summer Shandy followed by Game 5 on Saturday with $1 John Morrell Hot Dogs. All the remaining games in this series will begin at 7:30pm. It will be the first-ever playoff meeting between the teams at U.S. Bank Arena.

A Busy Man: Cyclones goaltender Michael Houser has been the busiest of any backstop in the Kelly Cup Playoffs. His 249 saves are most in the ECHL and rank him fourth on the club’s all-time goaltending saves list. Coming into the week, he needs just 52 stops to tie Greg Hewitt for third.

A Tenacious Trio: The Cyclones have found some great success from David Pacan, Mike Embach, and Trevor Lewis during these playoffs. While spending most of the time on the same line, the three Cincinnati forwards have each notched eight points in as many games. Their totals are tied for fourth among all ECHL postseason players.

Saving the Best For Last: Cincinnati's postseason offensive tendencies have held true to the regular season statistics. The bulk of its offense has come in the third period; they are outscoring opponents 12-10 in the final stanza and 18-13 in the final two regulation periods.
