B³ Postgame Recap 1/17: Tri-City 0, Lincoln 7

Choo choo!

Any thoughts that Lincoln might overlook the Tri-City Storm tonight were soon dismissed as the Stars scored two early goals in the first period and cruised to a 7-0 shutout victory at the IceBox .

With the win and the two points, the Stars improved to 20-11-2 (42 points) and are once again tied for first place in the USHL Western Conference with the Omaha Lancers.  Click here to view the updated USHL standings.

Stars goaltender Charles Williams played his best game of the season as he stopped all 32 shots he faced to record his second shutout of the season.  Williams' record improved to 8-1-1 on the season.

Scoring goals for the Stars tonight was Matt Friese (two goals), Will Suter, Brent Tate, Luke Johnson (PP), Ralfs Freibergs, and Bob Kinne.  Top point scorers for the Stars tonight were Will Suter (2g, 1a) and Mike McKee (3a).  Suter's first period goal at the 1:57 mark proved to be the game-winning goal.

Great atmosphere tonight at the IceBox considering it was a Tuesday night game.  I don't know too many USHL teams other than Lincoln that can draw 3,210 for a mid-week game.  For those of you who had tickets and didn't come to the game, you missed a good one!

I'll try to update this article a bit more sometime tomorrow when I have more time.  Enjoy the win tonight, folks!

Go Stars.

Great work last night by the guys. Loved the effort killing the 5-3 powerplay, and Williams was dynamite in goal. Now lets get ready for some Friday hockey, woooot!
