The Rivermen Report
Report for the Week Ending Nov. 4
The Peoria Rivermen concluded their season-long six-game home stand last week with a shootout loss to Lake Erie on Thursday and a shutout loss to Milwaukee on Saturday. The Rivermen now head out on the road with a 2-5-1-1 record.

Nov. 1 – 4-3 SOL vs. Lake Erie
Shorthanded goals scored by Adam Cracknell and Andrew Murray during a 1:12 stretch in the third period gave the Rivermen a 3-1 lead, but they allowed Lake Erie (Colorado Avalanche) to tie the game and win it 4-3 in the shootout Thursday night at Carver Arena. Cracknell scored his first of two goals early in the second period to tie the game at 1-1. After Peoria’s third period shorthanded goals, the Monsters quickly tied the contest with goals by Cameron Gaunce and Andrew Agozzino just 57 seconds apart. The Rivermen would eventually lose the shootout 3-1 with Jaden Schwartz tallying the lone goal. Jake Allen had a strong night in goal with 31 saves.

Nov. 3 – 3-0 L vs. Milwaukee
The Rivermen fired 34 shots on goal but couldn’t put one past netminder Jeremy Smith in a 3-0 loss to the Milwaukee Admirals (Nashville Predators) Saturday night. Mike Moore scored his first goal of the season at the 15:09 mark of the first frame to give Milwaukee a 1-0 lead. Mark Van Guilder scored 30 second into the second to increase Milwaukee’s lead to two goals. With Peoria’s net empty, Chris Mueller added a goal to seal the deal for an Admirals win. Jake Allen stopped 21 of 23 while Peoria went 0-for-6 on the power play.

Rivermen Notes

  • The Rivermen ended their six-game home stand with a 2-3-0-1 record.
  • Adam Cracknell and Andrew Murray’s shorthanded goals on Thursday marked the first time since Nov. 20, 2009 that the Rivermen scored two shorthanded goals in the same game. That night, Cracknell and Chris Porter scored just 17 seconds apart in a 7-2 win over San Antonio. Peoria’s AHL record of three shorthanded goals was set on Feb. 26, 2006 against the Chicago Wolves.
  • Adam Cracknell’s first goal Thursday night was his 100th as a pro. This includes 37 goals in the ECHL, 60 goals in the AHL, and four goals in the NHL for the St. Louis Blues.
  • Four Rivermen players have 20+ shots on goal. Derek Nesbitt is leading the way with 27 followed by Jaden Schwartz (24), Andrew Murray (22), and Adam Cracknell (21).
  • The Rivermen are hosting a bus trip to Peoria for fans in St. Louis. The Rivermen Team Traveler will pick up fans in St. Louis and take them to Peoria for two Rivermen home games. The package includes a one-night hotel stay. For more details, click here.

The Rivermen will visit the Charlotte Checkers for games on Thursday and Friday before returning home to face the Grand Rapids Griffins on Saturday. Games can be heard on CD Country 107.9 FM. For game updates, follow @rivsgameday on Twitter.
