The Coulee Region Chill had not put together consecutive wins since the NAHL Showcase in September, but after a 4-3 at Runestone last Saturday and a 6-3 win last night at the Omni Center, fans are starting to get the feeling that this team that went on a 13 period scoring drought was starting to come together. The Chill went down 1-0 in the 1st period when Nick DeCenzo scored at 5:03. Jimmy Hughes answered on the powerplay beating Myers down low, a shot he said he said didn't go where he wanted from Blomquist & Jansen towards the end of the 1st, but with just 13 seconds left, Tommy Williams sniped one past Aaron Davis from just inside the far circle to give the Blizzard a 2-1 lead after 1.
The Coulee Region Chill had a great 2nd period scoring 3 unanswered goals started by Tyler Klein from Eric Drapluk at 5:20. Cory Lushanko scored his first career NAHL goal at 13:03 with a great wrist shot after a couple big moves to get in the zone on a helper from Matt Blomquist. Then it was Eric Swahn following up some great work with David Ripple to make it 4-2 Chill in front of his Dad from Stockholm Sweden in attendence.
Wisconsin's famous Klements Racing Sausages were in the house as well last night and if you must know, the Bratwurst won the speed skating race in the 2nd Intermission.
The Alexandria Blizzard jumped back into the game with a big goal to start the 3rd by Craig Lindegard, but the Chill answered a little over 7 minutes later when Jake Useldinger stole the puck and weaved to the high slot putting one up high on the relief tender Jameson Shortreed. This was the first Chill goal scored on Shortreed by the Coulee Region Chill. The Chill made it 6-3 at 14:21 when Adam Thomas pushed the puck ahead to a rushing Cory Lushanko who hustled deep into the zone and then fed the puck back to Mac Jansen for the 6-3 capper.
