TONIGHT’S GAME… Corpus Christi will seek a weekend split and their first win of the season tonight as they play inside Landon Arena in Topeka for the final time in the regular season.  Last night, the IceRays took a first period lead off the stick of Danny Middleton but gave up two straight and were unable to tie the game late with the goaltender pulled as the Runners’ took the opener 2-1.  The IceRays piled on 33 shots however Drew Vogler was up for the task stopping all but one.  Defensively the IceRays were great as they blocked lanes and used sticks all night long holding the RoadRunners to only 14 shots in the loss.  Matthieu Audet will return to the lineup after serving his one game suspension while Caleb O’Brien still has three games left in his suspension.

TONIGHT’S BROADCASTS… Listen LIVE tonight beginning at 7:00PM on 91.1FM KSGR, ksgr.org, ustream.com, and “Listen Live” on the IceRays website while a video broadcast is also available for a small fee on fasthockey.com.  Puck drops at 7:15PM.  

THE SERIES… This is the second meeting of four this season between Corpus Christi and Topeka. 
            – IceRays record vs. TOP: 0-1-0

NETTING HIS FIRST… Danny Middleton scored on his first shot as an IceRay in the first period last night on a breakaway.  The tally was unassisted. 

OFFENSE AND DEFENSE… The IceRays held Topeka to only 14 shots in the loss while piling on 33 shots of their own.
