Wichita is 0-8-2-1 vs. Allen

HEAD TO HEAD - This is the 12th meeting of the season between the Thunder and the Americans. All-time, Wichita is 18-32-7 against Allen and 9-18-2 on the road in the series.

TODAY - Wichita heads to Allen today for the final two games of the regular season against the Americans. The Thunder are looking for their first win against Allen in the season-series. Both teams are coming off wins in their last outings. The Thunder enters tonight's game on a three-game winning streak after knocking off Evansville on Sunday afternoon by the final of 4-2. The Americans defeated Missouri on Wednesday night and won by that same score, 4-2. Chad Costello leads the way with 20 points (5g, 15a) in 11 games against Wichita. Chris Crane has eight goals and 12 points. Kale Kerbashian leads the way for the Thunder with four goals and four assists against his former team.

KOOL IT - Miles Koules was acquired in a trade with the Quad City Mallards before the start of the team's seven-game road trip in Allen. He provided plenty of heroics in his first two games in a blue sweater. He scored the game-winner on Friday night in the third round of the shootout and then knocked off his old team with a goal just 25 seconds into the overtime period on Saturday night. The Los Angeles, CA native has 14 points in 47 games this season.

BERGY - Domenic Alberga had a solid weekend for the Thunder. Playing with Ian Lowe and Michael Neal, the rookie forward from Maple, Ontario scored twice on Saturday night and followed that up with a goal and an assist on Sunday. He came into the weekend without a multi-point game in the Air Capital and finished with two points in back-to-back games and his first multi-goal game of the season.

EXTRA TIME - Wichita's streak of playing past 60 minutes came to an end on Sunday. The Thunder appeared in three-straight games past regulation before a 4-2 win in Evansville. Wichita has played seven of its last 10 games into either overtime or a shootout. It was also the third time this season that the team had three or more games in a row go past the allotted time. Wichita leads the league in overtime games with 19.

TWO SPOT - Wichita fell behind 2-0 in back-to-back games over the weekend and found a way to come back to claim a victory. It was the first time this season that the team has been able to win a contest when trailing by two.
