B³ Postgame Recap 2/3: Des Moines 0, Lincoln 7

The Lincoln Stars won their second straight game against the Des Moines Buccaneeers tonight with a dominating 7-0 shutout win in front 4,013 fans at the IceBox.  Click here to view the Pointstreak boxscore.

The scoring came fast and furious tonight, so instead of trying to remember each and every goal and how they were scored, I'm going to simply post the scoring summary below:

Period 1
Lincoln - Brent Tate (Jared Hanson) 16:29
Period 2
Lincoln - Dominik Shine (Kevin RoyTommy Schutt) 5:50
Lincoln - Kevin Roy (powerplay) (Ralfs FreibergsTommy Schutt) 15:35
Lincoln - Luke Johnson (Brent TateMike McKee) 19:27
Lincoln - Teemu Tiitinen (Mike McKeeLogan Smith) 19:59
Period 3
Lincoln - Brad Hawkinson (Markus McCreaLogan Smith) 10:27
Lincoln - Kevin Roy (unassisted) 14:39

12 of the 18 forwards and defensemen in the lineup tonight collected at least one point for Lincoln.  Stars forward Brad Hawkinson scored his first USHL goal tonight in the third period.  Teemu Tiitinen snapped a 21 game goal-scoreless streak with a huge goal that came with no time remaining in the second period.

Forward Kevin Roy was the leading scorer with three points (2 goals, 1 assist) on the night.  Roy scored his league-leading 30th and 31st goals of the season.  Stars forward turned defenseman Logan Smith was an amazing +6 tonight.

Lincoln netminder Charles Williams stopped all 32 shots that came his way to record his tenth win, and third shutout of the season.  In the last two games, both against Des Moines, Williams has stopped 65 of 67 shots to record back-to-back wins.  CW3 was definitely on fire tonight.

Stars finished 1-for-2 on the powerplay, while the Buccaneers went 0-for-6 with the man advantage.

I'll update this article tomorrow sometime with a full recap.  If the weather cooperates (big winter storm moving in), the Stars will travel to Waterloo, Iowa tomorrow to take on the Blackhawks.

Enjoy the win tonight!  Go Stars!
