Pochiro extends streak to five: Americans forward Zach Pochiro extended his point streak to five games with his fifth goal of the season on Wednesday night. Pochiro took a pass from Colton Hargrove and fired the puck into the Cincinnati net on a one-timer from the left circle to put the Americans on top 2-1 in the second period. The goal for Zach Pochiro was his 99th professional goal.

Flodell remains in Ottawa: Ottawa Senators prospect Logan Flodell was recalled by the Ottawa Senators last week and assigned to their AHL affiliate Belleville.

Hank Crones big Night: Americans forward Hank Crone had his biggest night as a pro on Wednesday night with two goals and two assists to lead the Americans to a 5-4 victory over Cincinnati. He finished a plus-two for the game with four shots on net.

Remaining Perfect: The Allen Americans are a perfect 4-0, when they score the first goal of the game. Hank Crone’s fifth goal of the season on Wednesday night in the opening frame gave the Americans the early 1-0 lead.
