Americans rally back, but fall short: The Allen Americans dropped Game 2 of their first round series against KC, 3-2 on Thursday night in Independence, Missouri. Kansas City jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but the Americans rallied back to tie the game. Stefan Fournier scored his first of the postseason in the second period to cut the lead in half. Chad Butcher capitalized on a Kansas City mistake to even the game at 2-2 in the third period, but a fluky goal by KC gave the Mavericks the lead for good. The series is tied 1-1. Tonight will be the final game in Kansas City this series. The loss on Thursday night was the first loss to the Mavericks at Cable Dahmer Arena this season. Allen has a 3-1-0 record on the road in KC.

Special Teams: The Americans power play is 2-for-9 in the postseason at 22.2 %. The Americans went 1-for-6 with the man advantage on Thursday night. Their penalty kill has given up one power play goal in four attempts (75.0%).

Leading the team in scoring: Rookie forward Hank Crone leads the Americans in scoring through two postseason games with three points (0 goals and 3 assists). Colton Hargrove leads the Americans in goals with 2.

In the First: The Americans are outscoring Kansas City 2-1 in the first  period through two playoff games. Colton Hargrove and Jack Combs have supplied the first period offense.

Crone named ECHL MVP: Americans forward Hank Crone was named the Warrior Hockey/ECHL MVP last Friday. Crone was the unanimous choice finishing the season with 105 points, 10 ahead of teammate Jack Combs who was second overall with 95 points. Crone led the league in goals with 49, a team record.
