Overtime Loss: The Allen Americans lost in overtime on Saturday night 4-3 to the Cincinnati Cyclones. The Americans have dropped the first two games of the series and have dropped four games in a row. JC Campagna (5), Spencer Asuchak (18) and Branden Troock (14) scored for the Americans. Antoine Bibeau suffered the loss stopping 32 shots in defeat. The Americans look to salvage a game in the series this afternoon at 2:05 pm CST.

Combs Milestone: With his assist on Saturday night, Jack Combs now has 300 assists for his pro career.

Tight at the Bottom of the Mountain: With the Americans’ overtime loss on Saturday night, and Wichita’s overtime victory in Indianapolis, the two teams are tied with a 0.500 record. Kansas City (0.490) is just percentage points behind Allen and Wichita. The Tulsa Oilers (0.530) who ended their five-game losing streak on Saturday remain in fourth place overall in the Mountain Division.

Winquist on the Board: Americans forward Josh Winquist picked up his first point with the Americans, assisting on Branden Troock’s third period goal on Saturday night. Winquist was acquired from the Reading Royals this week in exchange for future considerations. In 16 total games this season he has 12 points.

Struggling in Overtime Games: The Americans have a record of 1-6 in games that end in overtime this season. The team is 1-1 in shootout games this year.
