- Adin Hill gets the start in net.
- Henrik Samuelsson, Mark Cooper, Justin Hache, and Dysin Mayo tonight's healthy scratches.
- San Diego fans showing their support for Craig Cunningham with a number of #CunnyCan signs seen in the seats during warm-ups. Gulls players are wearing #14 decals on their helmets to support the Roadrunners' captain.
- Tucson gets their first power play of the night 8:20 into the period. San Diego comes into the evening with the AHL's worst-ranked penalty kill.
- Conor Garland opens the scorinbg 11:32 into the game, slamming home his first professional goal off of a redirected Zbynek Michalek shot from the point.
- Matia Marcantuoni and Zbynek Michalek register their first points of the season with the assists on Garland's marker.
- Christian Fischer hits the post on a shorthanded scoring chance.
- Each of San Diego's two first period goals come against the Roadrunners' penalty kill. Tucson's power play goes 0-for-1 against the Gulls' last-ranked penalty kill unit in the opening period.
- Adin Hill has had to make a flurry of impressive stops in the opening minutes of the second. Tucson has come out rather flat.
- Brendan Perlini takes a Kyle Wood shot to the arm/back, leaves ice abruptly, but returns for his next shift.
- Not a good period.
- Fairly uneventful.
