100 - Stefan Fournier collected his 100th ECHL point on Saturday night. The veteran forward is having a career season, recording game-winners in back-to-back contests. With three points over the weekend, he has 24 goals and 41 points so far this season.

SAL - Jason Salvaggio continues to find the scoresheet. He has points in four-straight games (3g, 4a) and has four goals in his last six. The second-year forward from the University of New Hampshire needs one more goal to equal his totals from his rookie season a year ago when he put up 16 between Maine and Wichita.

EXELLENT - Billy Exell has been red hot over the last five games. He has seven points (3g, 4a) over that span and had a four-game point-streak snapped on Sunday. Exell had a streak going of collecting at least two points in three-straight games. The rookie forward from the University of Minnesota-Duluth has 23 points (8g, 15a) in 49 games.

WELCOME BACK - The Thunder welcomed back some reinforcements into the line-up as Beau Starrett returned from Bakersfield on Friday for the first time since late January. Vincent Desharnais joined the team on Saturday night after being loaned back to Wichita.

SPECIAL - Wichita has scored power play goals in six-straight games, going 9-for-19 over that span (47.4%). The Thunder have scored two on the man advantage in three of those six games. Wichita has moved up to 10th in the ECHL on the power play, operating at 18.4%.

BACK-TO-BACK - Wichita broke through this past weekend on the road, which has been a struggle this season. The Thunder won their first road game on Friday night since January 25 and won back-to-back games away from home for the first time this season.

LEAVING THE MOUNTAINS - The Thunder have played all their games against the Mountain Division since early November. Wichita will play an opponent outside of the division on Wednesday, March 11 with a visit to Fort Wayne.
