LAST WEEK’S RESULTS:

In his first game in Tucson at the team’s home opener, Andy Miele scored the overtime winner Friday on an outstanding individual effort.

With goals in both Friday’s and Saturday’s contests, forward Lane Pederson ranks second among all skaters in the AHL with six goals in five games.

First-year netminder Ivan Prosvetov made his pro debut Saturday in net and turned aside 29 of the 31 shots faced for his first pro win in the effort.


“If [the San Antonio defender] knocks it off my stick there, he’s going the other way on a breakaway.  But I like to play a little risky and that time it worked in my favor.” – Roadrunners forward Andy Miele chuckled post-game Friday about his overtime winner.

“There’s great energy in the building.  To win at home is an exciting feeling.  It’s good to be at home and practice at home throughout the week.  We built the week with energy.” – Roadrunners Head Coach Jay Varady following the team’s win Saturday night.


The team will practice in Tucson Monday – Thursday this week before welcoming the Iowa Wild to town.

The Iowa Wild, like the San Antonio Rampage this time last week, will enter Tucson undefeated in regulation.  The affiliate of the NHL’s Minnesota Wild currently sits atop the Western Conference with a record of 5-0-0-1.
