NOTES

Pregame:
 
- Marek Langhamer leads the team out onto the ice for warm-ups.
 
- Joe Whitney, wearing #16, will make his Roadrunners debut, skating on the left side of Grayson Downing and Jeremy Morin on the team's second unit. 
 
- Conor Garland and Brandon Burlon look to be tonight's healthy scratches.
 
First Period:
 
- Roadrunners get a power play in the opening two minutes of play; can't convert, register one shot.
 
- Roadrunners able to kill off a 40-second 5-on-3 penalty kill. Gulls score on the layover time of the secondary infraction.
 
- San Diego strikes for their second goal late in the period as Nick Sorenson tips home a pass while driving to the net through two Roadrunners defensemen.
 
- Roadrunners outshoot the Gulls 11-8 in the first, but don't put together any Grade-A scoring chances.
 
Second Period:
 
- San Diego takes a 3-0 lead early into the middle frame. Marek Langhamer has been pulled from the game for Adin Hill. He stopped eight of 11 shots faced.
 
- Dysin Mayo dips down during a power play and one-times home his first-career AHL goal to get the Roadrunners on the board.
 
- Grayson Downing and Joe Whitney register their first points in Roadrunners uniforms with assists on Mayo's marker.
 
- Roadrunners outshoot the Gulls 14-9 in the period.
