B³ Postgame Recap 11/11: Sioux Falls 2, Lincoln 3

Courtesy of Brandon Anderson Photography
It was a bit of a bizarre ending tonight at the IceBox, but the Stars were victorious by a score of 3-2 over the Sioux Falls Stampede.  Click here to view the Pointstreak boxscore.



With the win, the Stars improved to 7-4-0 (14 points), and are in second place in the USHL Western Conference.  Lincoln is now riding a three-game winning streak going into their game tomorrow night against the Omaha Lancers.

Lincoln goals came from Kevin Roy, and Teemu Tiitinen (2).  Tiitinen's third period goal with a little more than five minutes remaining proved to be the game winner.  Sioux Falls was awarded a penalty shot with .5 seconds remaining in the third period, but Sioux Falls forward Todd Skirving appeared to shoot the puck wide.

Stars outshot the 'Pede 33-28 overall.  Lincoln goaltender Jackson Teichroeb stopped 26 of 28 shots on goal to record his sixth win of the season.  Stars went 1-for-2 on the powerplay, while the Stampede went 1-for-4 with the man advantage.

I'll try to update this blog article tomorrow sometime with a full recap.  I probably won't get to it until tomorrow afternoon, after the Nebraska football game.

Enjoy the win tonight, everyone!  Go Stars!

anyone have any clue why SF was awarded that penalty shot at the end? it was almost like Wilk wanted SF to win tonight for some reason and when he realized they weren't going to do it, he looked for any possible way to give them a chance to tie it up... whatever... at least the Stars won. should be an awesome game tomorrow night!

lincolnfan,

Chad Johnson said after the game that he was told that one of the Stars players (Teemu) had gloved the puck while it was in the Lincoln crease, which would warrant the penalty shot. I couldn't tell from my seat in Section J if that's what really happened.

I'm just glad that SF didn't convert the penalty shot. Looked like to me that the player shot the puck high and wide, but Teichroeb may have gotten a piece of it. Hard to tell from where I was sitting.
