LAST WEEK’S RESULTS:
8-2 Win @ Ontario (Saturday)
The Roadrunners recorded their largest-ever margin of victory in the team’s win Saturday, winning by six for the first time in the organization’s history. The eight goals also matched the franchise-high for single goals in a game.
2018-19 leading goal scorer Lane Pederson registered the team’s seventh hat trick in franchise history, scoring three times in the team’s second win of the season. He now paces all Roadrunners with four goals in three games.
13 of the 18 different skaters dressed for Tucson in the win contributed at least one point.
THEY SAID IT:
“We obviously didn’t play our best in San Antonio and we came in with a chip in our shoulder. We came out tonight with a really good team effort and everyone’s happy headed home.” – Roadrunners forward Brayden Burke summarizing the feelings of Saturday’s big win.
“We created offense right from puck drop. To keep doing that for three periods is a positive and we’re going to look to build on that going into next weekend.” – Burke when asked what he thought the team did well offensively Saturday.
