Note III: The Moose were feeling good heading into their Saturday matinee with the Wild which kicked off the first of six at home but when that final buzzer sounded they had lost the special teams battle and ultimately the game by a final score of 5-2. They’ll have a chance to rebound in a re-match with Iowa this afternoon at 2 PM for their Halloween game.
Note IV: Make it eight in a row for the Winnipeg Ice who, home or away, just continue to win. They defeated the Wheat Kings in their home opener last night to improve to 13-1-0-0 on the season. After living on the road to start 2022-23, their next nine are in Winnipeg. Next up will be the Everett Silvertips on Tuesday at Wayne Fleming Arena.
Note V: It was quite the night for Jets 2022 1st rounder Rutger McGroarty who picked up his first collegiate hat trick for the Wolverines last night in a 6-5 OT win for Michigan. He’s got 4G 6A for 10 points in 8 games.
