Cody Conine/InsideTheRink

The Adirondack Thunder and Allen Americans faced off on Saturday Night as the Thunder were looking for vengeance after their 3-2 SO loss on Friday Night. In the first period, goaltending would be on display as Jeremy Brodeur and Mark Sinclair would put on a show, stopping all 12 shots each goaltender saw in the opening frame. As the Thunder continue to deal with injuries, it feels like every night, somebody is getting their first pro goal, and on Saturday, it would be Ryan Conroy who got a nice pass from Tristan Ashbrook and fired a puck into an empty net on the PP to give the Thunder a 1-0 lead at the 5:22 mark of the middle frame. Once again, the Thunder would head into the third period with a lead.

Adirondack had multiple chances to extend their lead, but Mark Sinclair was having himself a night in the Allen crease and stopped multiple break-away opportunities from Tristan Ashbrook, among others. On Friday Night, the Thunder would lose their lead with 3:12 to go in the third, and on Saturday, it would be Liam Finlay who would find a loose puck and beat Brodeur to tie the game with 4:09 remaining as we would once again head to OT. For the Americans, it was their fourth straight OT game, and for Adirondack, it would be their league-leading 22nd game that would need more than 60 minutes. For the second straight night, Allen would head home with the extra point as Kris Myllari would beat Brodeur at the 2:13 mark of the overtime period. Jeremy Brodeur made 29 saves in the loss for the Thunder, and Mark Sinclair would make 39 saves in the win for the Americans. Allen and Adirondack will wrap up their three-game set on Sunday Afternoon, with puck drop slated for 3:10 PM.
