NOTES

Pregame:
 
- Marek Langhamer leads the team down the tunnel and onto the ice for warm-ups, set to make his 10th start of the season.
 
- Dakota Mermis looks to be back in the lineup after serving as a healthy scratch on Saturday night, taking the place of Brandon Burlon.
 
- No changes seen to the personnel in the team's offensive alignment. Branden Troock and Conor Garland are not dressed.
 
First Period:
 
- A pretty solid start for the Roadrunners, who have registered the first four shots of the game.
 
- Stefan Fournier, energy packed as always, drops the gloves five minutes in.
 
- San Jose takes back momentum from Tucson's early push, records nine of next 10 shots, one of which inluded Rourke Chartier's game-opening tally.
 
- Trailing 2-0 and working on their first power play of the evening, Michael Bunting redirects a Jamie McBain shot home to get the Roadrunners on the board with just over a minute left in the period.
 
Second Period:
 
- Not much going for the Roadrunners in the second period. Hold their own, no Grade-A scoring opportunities.
 
- Tucson outshot 19-12 in the middle frame.
 
- Marek Langhamer plays a phenomenal period; San Jose registers one goal during the frame, their second on the power play.
 
Third Period:
