Searching for First Win: Both teams come into tonight’s game looking for their first win of the season. The Americans are 0-1-1 after falling to the Oilers 4-1 on opening night and Wichita 4-3 (SO) last Saturday. The Brahmas are 0-1-0 after dropping their opener to Tulsa 3-0.
Leading Scorers: Jason Deitsch, who will be skating in his first game back in North Richland Hills since being traded to Allen, currently leads the Americans with 3 points (1g, 2a) on the season, followed by Keith Johnson, Colton Yellow Horn and Scott Langdon who have each registered 2 assists.
Battle of the Former Steelheads: We didn’t see it in the pre-season but we should see it tonight. Americans netminder Rejean Beauchemin, who was in-between the pipes for both games last weekend, comes into tonight’s action with a 4.00 GAA and .890 SV%. Opposing him should be new Brahmas goaltender Steve Silverthorn, who has posted a 2.06 GAA and .926 SV% thus far.
Tidbits: The Americans 3 game road trip will conclude tomorrow night in Wichita with a 7:30 PM faceoff against the Thunder. Following the game, the Americans will return home for a pair of games against the Arizona Sundogs next weekend.
