Goalie makes 35 saves in win

Peoria, Ill.- Another solid goaltending performance from Carter Hutton led the Rockford IceHogs to a 4-0 win over the Peoria Rivermen on Wednesday night at Carver Arena.

Hutton stopped all 35 Rivermen shots for his second shutout of the season and helped backstop Rockford to a perfect 6-for-6 on the penalty kill. Up 2-0 in the second period, Rockford was down two men for 1:36, but staved off the Rivermen rally. The offense did the rest in the Hogs third straight victory.

Rockford struck early on Wednesday to grab a 1-0 lead. Terry Broadhurst redirected a Klas Dahlbeck point shot past Mike McKenna and in just 48-second into the game for his third goal of the season.

A power play strike extended Rockford's lead to 2-0 in the second period. Off a face off win from Brad Mills, Jeremy Morin one-timed a Shawn Lalonde pass past McKenna for his 17th goal of the season at 9:20 of the second period and just four seconds into the power play.

Late in the third period, Peoria pulled McKenna for the extra attacker, but Kyle Beach set up Martin St. Pierre for his team-leading 18th goal of the season at 18:37. Kenndal McArdle added one more at 18:52, knocking in a Brandon Pirri feed for his third tally of the year.

Morin's power play goal ran Rockford's streak to four-straight contests with a goal on the man advantage and the unit finished the night 1-4.

Next Home Game: Friday, Feb. 22 vs. Grand Rapids Griffins. Puck drop is 7:05 p.m. The Hogs and Griffins square off in their final matchup of the season.  The first 2,500 fans to the tilt will receive an IceHogs water bottle courtesy of Rock Valley Culligan.
