A goalie can do only so much on their own. I think this is a function of the skill level of the defenders in front of him.

He played well for them at the start of the season. Sometime between him coming back from Stockton and rejoining Kansas City, he suffered an injury. I do not have the exact details on what it was but as of right now it appears he is trying to get back into the swing of things. It'll be a good idea to keep an eye on him for right now though.

The Mavericks lost to the Utah Grizzlies last night 5-1. They went scoreless through most of the game until the third period where C.J. Eick netted one but it stayed at that as they were not able to get any more back. Ben Halford was in net for KC and faced 26 shots. (Even with the Grizzlies goalie) Before tonight's rematch, Mason McDonald has been reactivated meaning there is definitely going to be a Flames prospect in net tonight. Mike McMurtry also played his first game with KC this year after being sent down from Stockton. The team is happy to have him back for now as he was a huge producer for the Mavs last year and was named the team's all-star representative.

Mason McDonald gets the nod tonight against the Utah Grizzlies. After two back to back losses that really didn't sit well with the team, tonight is a perfect opportunity to see this team turn around and take control of their season before it falls away from their grasp. They go into this game sitting 5th in the Mountain division and 20th in the League. They are within 1 point of the Wichita Thunder but the Utah Grizzlies sit at 3rd in the division with 52 points so they have some serious ground to make up.

Kansas City sells out tonight in honour of Military appreciation weekend and the crowd is getting a show for sure. Utah and Kansas City knocking heads, playing almost shot for shot and keeping a very quick paced first period. The Mavericks score first on the powerplay when Jared VanWormer sets up David Dziurzysnki right in the slot. A couple minutes later Utah answers back and Taylor Richart scores for Utah. Newer Mav, Loren Ulett drops the gloves after the Mavericks goal and puts up an impressive fight. Ulett is only playing in his 6th game with the Mavericks tonight. Shots end 12-8 for the Mavericks after 1 period of play.

Utah pulls ahead just 28 seconds into the period. About 2 minutes later, Mike McMurtry nets his first wearing a Mavericks jersey this year and the game is tied up once again. His line alongside Jared VanWormer and David Dziurzynski has been absolutely buzzing all night. Dziurzynski up to 2 points on the night at this point. Toward the end of the period, Rocco Carzo attempts to pass the puck that then hits a Utah player in the face, dropping him to the ice. Darian Dziurzynski plays it out and scores goal number 3 for the Mavericks. Unfortunately, the celebration is cut short as the Grizzlies quickly answer back and the period ends tied at 3. Shots sit at 22-20 for the Grizzlies after 2 periods.

Most of the first half of the period is quite uneventful but Darian Dziurzynski scores his 2nd of the game at 7:47 to put the Mavericks up 4-3 over the Grizzlies. Rocco Carzo gets his 2nd assist of the night off that goal and Darian Dziurzynski gets his 3rd point. The Mavericks hold this lead right to the bitter end and earn a split against Utah this weekend. Final score 4-3. Mason McDonald stops 24/27 shots.

Kansas City hosts the Rapid City Rush for a Tuesday night game. Mason McDonald gets the start in net. Rapid City gets on the board first and between both goalies, McDonald definitely got the brunt of the work. Not a whole lot of out of the ordinary play through the first 20 minutes. No penalties were called and after the first frame Mavericks trail 13-9 in shots.

Rapid City attacks first in the 2nd but the Mavericks attack harder. It starts with Jordan Ernst and ends with Jared VanWormer. Mavericks pepper the Rapid City goalie with shots ending the period with 31. Goals come from Ernst, Durocher and VanWormer. Willie Raskob up to 2 assists on the night and that's not all! Brett Beauvais had an amazing bar down goal and a questionable call was made. Apparently, there was Maverick interference with the goalie but looking at replays on twitter that does not seem to be the case. Either way, the Mavericks end the period ahead 3-1 in goals and ahead 31-20 in shots.

The third period showed some of Rapid City's defeat. They didn't really show much of a fight until pulling their goalie in the last 2 minutes. Mason McDonald comes up with his best saves of the game and helps his team to the 3-2 victory. 2 goals ended up being overturned in this game. Another happened in the 3rd but the net came off the posts. Thankfully for them, it does not hurt them. Shots end 36-28 for the Mavericks.

The Mavericks are back in action for a weekend series against the South Carolina Stingrays. Mason McDonald stays hot and unsurprisingly starts the first night. They got Mark Cooper back today and with Mike McMurtry still down here, they have an abundance of forwards at the moment. Pretty exciting for the team thought with the potential in their scoring ability.

On the first power play of the game, the Mavericks are successful by a wrist shot from Joey Sides. Mark Cooper and Corey Durocher get assists on his goal. A good change of pace for the Mavericks whose opponents often score first on them as of lately. The first period continues on with a few penalties here and there but not a whole lot of action. The Mavericks hold their 1-0 lead to the intermission and lead 8-3 in shots.

The second period starts off with a little more rough stuff. Keeping in mind these teams have not seen each other this season. This results in some pretty tame play. There were a couple big hits off the glass but still not an overly exciting game. Later in the period, the Mavericks come up on a big rush, Rocco Carzo tries to bat a puck out of the air, Corey Durocher gets a point-blank chance then finally Nate Widman puts it home and the Mavericks extend their lead to 2. Corey Durocher picks up an assist and earns his second point of the night. The score holds to the end of the period.

The game finally shows some glimpses of the speed picking up halfway through. The Stingrays practically lull the Mavericks to sleep and both teams begin to fight. Mavericks looking to secure some insurance goals and they do! Rocco Carzo redirects a shot from Darian Dziurzynski and puts the Mavericks up 3-0. This gives Corey Durocher another assist. He earns an assist on every goal of the game so far and my vote for 1st star of the night. South Carolina calls a timeout and pulls their goalie and it takes David Dziurzynski about 30 seconds to score on the empty net. The Stingrays take two penalties in the last 2 minutes and secure their loss even further. Mason McDonald gets his 3rd win in a row and earns the 4-0 shutout win.

The Mavericks go for a rematch against the South Carolina Stingrays on home ice. Mason McDonald gets the start for the 4th game in a row. The Stingrays attack first. But the Mavericks attack back harder. Darian Dziurzynski gets a power play goal within a minute and a half of the Stingrays goal then Nate Widman rips a beautiful slapshot that makes it in off the crossbar. The Mavs hold the 2-1 lead to finish off the first period. Much more interesting first 20 minutes than last night. Shots sit at 12-10 in favour of the Mavericks after the 1st.

The second period gets its share of chances but the score stays frozen at 2-1. The Stingrays appear to be quite fatigued and not showing a whole lot of fight. This sort of happened last night too. They end up being not very disciplined, take bad penalties and don't get any quality scoring chances. The Mavericks had their share of plays that a slightly different shot placement would've easily resulted in a goal. Mike McMurtry gets a shot on the doorstep but can't elevate it over the goalie pads. Mavericks will likely go into the 3rd looking for some insurance and to really step on this team before they start to show any signs of life. Shots at the end of 2 are 23-20 for the Mavericks.

The Stingrays show signs of life in the 3rd period and score the tying goal. This goal comes from the same line that scored first. A few minutes later, the take the lead when Mason McDonald tries to make a save that deflects off the side of his pad and he accidentally directs the rebound right into the net. They try to get a quick one back by pulling Mason McDonald in the last minute and a bit but South Carolina scores an empty netter that pretty much puts this game away. 4-2 final score. Mavericks only put up 6 shots in the 3rd ending with 29 on the night to the Stingrays 33.

Tonight's game is a rescheduled game from last Tuesday against the Tulsa Oilers. They cancelled due to freezing rain and dangerous road conditions. I was unable to attend the last two games over the weekend but the Mavericks were victorious in both. On Friday against the Allen Americans, Mason McDonald shut them out by a score of 2-0. On Saturday against the Kalamazoo Wings, the Mavs worked from a 3-1 deficit to win it 4-3 in overtime. This weekend will be the first stretch of away games they have had in a long time as they will take on the Mountain Division-leading Utah Grizzlies.

Tonight Mason McDonald gets the nod for the 7th game in a row. Zach Fischer was reactivated from the IR today and recalled to Stockton as a result. Joining him in Stockton last week was also Mike McMurtry and Nick Schneider. Schneider was not getting any action down here when McDonald came back and had a hot streak of games. Mike Panowyk has also been brought back from the IR and is playing in tonight's competition. Mark Cooper is back in the AHL as San Antonio called him back.

The first 5 minutes of the game were painfully slow but the Mavericks get an early power play and shift the momentum their way for a couple minutes. They get 3 shots and held good zone pressure throughout their power play. They players start to catch up to each other and unfortunately, Tulsa is the one to attack first. They hold their 1-0 lead for the remainder of the period. Riley Sweeney appears to break away at the end of the period but is only halfway up the ice when the horn sounds and get a quality shot. Not a whole lot of other notable action.

The Mavericks get their chance in the 2nd period and tie the game up thanks to a beautiful shot by Darian Dziurzynski that hits the crossbar and lands in. A few minutes later, the Oilers go on a huge 5 on 3 penalty for 30 seconds and the Mavericks successfully kill both. Mason McDonald got peppered with shots this period and a seemingly harmless puck finds its way over the line just before the net comes off. This happened in the dying minutes of the period and the Mavericks fall behind to end this period as well. Tulsa works their way up in shots and lead the Mavericks 23-12 in that tally and 2-1 in goals.

Both teams get coincidental minors in the first 5 minutes of the 3rd period but 4 on 4 hockey makes no change to the score. These penalties end with the Mavericks getting a power play. Thankfully the guy in the box has scored twice in this game so at least he's on timeout for a bit. That penalty expires and the Mavericks make it through 2.5 periods with only 14 shots on net. Not quite the recipe for success on that one. The Mavericks call a timeout with 2:27 to go in regulation. Mason McDonald skates off before the puck drops for the faceoff and the Mavs hold pressure for the remainder of the game. Their effort falls just short and Tulsa takes this game by a score of 2-1. Shots end 32-24 for Tulsa. They will hit the road for the weekend.
