Is Mason ever turning things around this season. If he continues as such going to be hard to believe that he doesnt find himself in Stockton next season splitting the starts with Parsons.

18-6-1 is one hell of a record considering the other goalie numbers

A little catch up since my last post.

-Mavericks go on the road for 3 games. 1 against the Tulsa Oilers and 2 against the Allen Americans
-The first game finished up their 4 games in 5 days stretch and they fall to the Tulsa Oilers on Sunday March 3rd by a score of 3-1. Nick Schneider takes the loss on that night.
-This week they played the Allen Americans on Wednesday, March 6th where they beat them 6-0 and Mason McDonald earns his 4th shutout of the season and Greg Betzold picks up 5 points! (4G,1A)
-On Friday they pick up another win at Allen this time by a score of 9-3. Allen scores 3 times in the first period and the Mavericks score 9 unanswered throughout the next 3 periods. McDonald picks up the win on that night as well.

The ECHL trade deadline was on Thursday and the Mavericks do not make any moves. The only additions have already been announced through the last couple weeks including Jake Henderson and Brayden Sherbinin.

-Jared VanWormer has returned from his AHL loan to the Colorado Eagles

Mavericks host the Cincinnati Cyclones today for a matinee game. Mason McDonald gets the nod between the pipes.

Both teams come out hot right from puck drop. I actually talked the head coach of the Cyclones on a podcast last week and he was very much looking forward to this game. Cincinnati is currently 1st overall in the league with a 41-10-4-3 record and 89 points. Kansas City steps on the gas and pressure the Cyclones a lot through the first period. Obvious standout was Jared VanWormer. He placed himself in two opporunities that could have very easily been goals. Loren Ulett absolutely crushes a Cyclone player against the glass and is jumped as a result. At the end of their fight, Ulett has drawn a power play for the Mavericks. No score in the first period but the Mavericks put up 14 shots to the Cyclones 5.

A crazy 2nd period as Mason McDonald appears to make a save off of Peterson's shot then Dorowicz comes back around to score and causes an eruption on the ice. A full out line brawl that led to 32 minutes of penalties split between the teams. Each getting a game misconduct, roughing double minor, and unsportsmanlike conduct. Later in the period, Corey Durocher flips in a rebound that his teammates had tried at over three times. Jared VanWormer and Joey Sides pick up assists. The game stays physical and in the last minute, the Cyclones pull ahead once more. Mavericks still hold the advantage in shots by 25-17 but are down by 1 on the scoreboard.

Mason McDonald gets beat on a shot fired from the blue line in the first five minutes of the period and the Cyclones go up 3-1. Shortly after, the Mavericks get a power play opportunity but are unable to generate anything on it. The Mavericks deflate after the third goal and do not get a lot of opportunities due to sloppy play. David Dziurzynski hits a Cyclone player hard, causing him to go down injured and start another line brawl. It appears to calm downs and start up again. Mason McDonald skates halfway up the ice but does not step in. The refs try calming guys down but Loren Ulett gets into a lengthy fight. Ice crew scrapes blood off the ice as the ref confirms the penalty rulings. A whole lot of penalties are dealt but neither team going on the power play as a result. Loren Ulett and David Dziurzynski get game misconducts among other calls and leave the ice. About a minute after that mess the Mavericks score! Corey Durocher gets his second goal of the night and Joey Sides picks up his second assit of the night. Greg Betzold also stays hot and gets a point on that tally. Kansas City pulls McDonald with just over a minute left in regulation and no more than 20 seconds later, Greg Betzold ties the game! Corey Durocher picks up his 3rd point of the night off the assist. This game goes to overtime.

Halfway through overtime, Rocco Carzo stops a shot that breaks his stick then hits him in the mouth. He is escourted off the ice by the trainer and appears to be in a lot of pain. Both sides get their turns at each other but neither are successful. Mason McDonald stops 35/38 through 65 minutes of play. This game goes to a shootout. None of the Mavericks shooters are successful and Cincinnati's 2nd shooter scores so they win this one. Mavericks still pick up a point in this game. I can't speak for the road games but this game was the best I have seen out of them this year. Absolutely outstanding performance.

Nick Schneider gets an opportunity to start tonight for the Mavericks. As of lately, it has seemed he will get 1 start for every 3 starts McDonald gets. Mason McDonald does not dress for tonight's game so Ben Halford sits on the bench for backup. I am not sure the reasoning behind that one. As far as I know, he is healthy. Might just be to give Mase a break before they go on their 8 game road trip. They play against the Oilers affiliated, Wichita Thunder who are 10 points under them in the standings. So far 2 teams in the league have clinched playoff berths and the Mavericks hold the last spot in the Mountain Division with a 7 point lead on the Rapid City Rush. Mathematically they should win this game tonight, but regardless of the standings, Wichita always brings a tough matchup that has a Battle of Alberta feel to it.

Rocco Carzo is back on the ice after a scary looking play in overtime against the Cyclones. He is wearing a cage on his helmet to protect I'm assuming a jaw injury after getting a puck to the face. Wichita scores first just shy of the six-minute mark. Goal coming from Jason Salvaggio. Joey Sides wears the A today with VanWormer's absence and answers back with a goal of his own! Tying goal assisted by C.J. Eick and Corey Durocher. Greg Betzold takes on Jared Wilson in a fight. I am still unsure as to what sparked this but it appeared to happen mid-play. Both serve their 5 minutes in the box. Joey Sides didn't like the score the way it was and decided to do something about it. He scores his 2nd of the night, putting the Mavs up 2-1 and Eick picking up another assist. This score holds to the end of the period and the Mavs head to the locker room up 2-1 and leading in shots 11-10.

Greg Betzold stays hot and scores the third goal of the night for the Mavericks just as a Wichita penalty comes to an end. Mike Panowyk and Darian Dziurzynski pick up assists. Goal game just over 5 minutes into the 2nd period. The refs get a little whistle happy through the bulk of the 2nd period. Mavs go on a 5 on 3, then Wichita does. 4 on 4's power plays, penalty kills are at large but they all go through with no change in the score. Mavericks hold a 3-1 lead in goals and a 21-16 lead in shots.

The third period brings intensity from both sides but not a whole lot of production. A couple of penalties are whistled here and there. Both sides get their scoring opportunities but the score stays at a standstill. Nick Schneider stands tall in some tough rushes and zone pressure. Wichita calls a timeout with 1:38 to go in regulation and holds their goalie on the bench for a face off in the Mavs zone. The play pays off for Wichita and they get 1 back. It stays that way and with some good defensive play to end the period, Mavericks win this game 3-2. Schneider stops 28/30 shots.

Mason McDonald did not dress last night due to illness. He wanted to play through it but was instructed not to from the team as they still have Ben Halford hanging around on reserve.
