The Tucson Roadrunners head into game two against the San Jose Barracuda riding a four-game point streak at 3-0-1-0. The team matched their season-high in goals in a strong 5-1 win on Friday Night and also set a season-high in win margin with the four-goal victory. They now look for the two-game sweep before heading back on the road. 

Three things:

  1. Friday, the Roadrunners notched their first game of the season with multiple power-play goals in a game, scoring two on the man-advantage. Josh Doan and Victor Soderstrom were the goal scorers on the power-play as Doan leads the team with four heading into Saturday’s game and is tied for second amongst rookies in power-play goals.
  2. Including Friday’s two-goal game, Josh Doan now has three multi-point games on the season and two games where he has scored two goals. He and Dylan Guenther are tied for the team lead in multiple-point games (3) as they have combined for six goals and six assists for 12 points in those games. In addition, Doan had nine shots on Friday which is a team season high.
  3. Austin Poganski has four points (1 goal, 3 assists) in his last three games with an assist coming on Friday against San Jose. Poganksi is at five points (1 goal, four assists) in 11 games this season. Poganski joined the Roadrunners after spending a season with the defending Western Conference Champions Coachella Valley Firebirds.

What did they say?

It’s been great, you can really see the team starting to piece things together; like that, working off the start. We’re still trying to find that full 60 minutes, but sometimes getting the good start is the hardest part.”
