Americans Jump on KC early – The Americans jumped out to a 4-0 lead in Kansas City on Sunday afternoon and then had to hold on for a 5-4 victory at Cable Dahmer Arena. Kansas City scored three goals in a two-and-a-half-minute stretch in the second period to cut the lead to one goal. The Americans regained their two-goal lead in the third period when Hank Crone scored his 19th of the year. KC cut the lead to one goal at the 12:34 mark to make it 5-4, but that was as close as it would get. The Americans ended their one-game skid to earn the 5-4 victory.

Pochiro out again tonight: Zach Pochiro served the first of his two-game suspension on Sunday afternoon in Kansas City. He is eligible to return to the Americans lineup on Friday night against Tulsa.

Tied for fourth: Rookie forward Hank Crone extended his point streak to a season-high nine games on Sunday, scoring his 19th goal of the season in a 5-4 win over the Mavericks. He is tied for fourth overall in the ECHL in scoring with 47 points (19 goals and 28 assists), nine points behind the scoring leader Zach O’Brien.

Robidoux set to return this week: Americans forward Mikael Robidoux has one more game to serve in his seven-game suspension. He is eligible to return to the Americans lineup this Friday.

Division Love: The Americans have played the last 16 games against Mountain Division opponents. That trend continues tonight against the Kansas City Mavericks. The Americans are 9-7-0 in that 16-game stretch.

Streaking: Americans forward Colton Hargrove continues his hot stretch. He is currently on a season-high 11-game point streak. He has 16 points over that stretch with 10 goals and six assists.  Hargrove is third overall on the team in scoring (14 goals and 16 helpers).

Gould set to make his Allen return: Gavin Gould was acquired from South Carolina last week in exchange for forward Jackson Leppard. He had 26 points in 23 games last season with the Americans.
