The Rivermen dropped all three games they played last week against division rivals Chicago, Rockford and Milwaukee.

Feb. 5 – 4-3 OTL at Chicago
Darren Haydar earned a hat trick and Bill Sweatt notched the game-winner in Chicago’s 4-3 overtime win over the Rivermen on Tuesday afternoon. T.J. Hensick, Phil McRae and Evgeny Grachev tallied Peoria’s goals. Mike McKenna allowed four goals on 21 shots, while the Rivermen outshot the Wolves 23-21 in the game. Peoria went 1-for-7 on the power play.

Feb. 8 – 4-2 L vs. Rockford
The Rivermen didn’t trail until the third period, but ultimately lost to the Rockford IceHogs 4-2 on Friday night at Carver Arena. Chris Porter scored on the power play and Tyler Shattock added a shorthanded goal for Peoria. Kyle Beach scored twice and Jimmy Hayes scored the game-winning goal early in the third period. Mike McKenna made 27 saves in a losing effort. Both teams scored once on the man advantage.

Feb. 10 – 1-0 L at Milwaukee
Mark Van Guilder scored the game’s only goal early in the first period in Milwaukee’s 1-0 blanking of the Rivermen on Sunday. The Rivermen outshot the Admirals 13-7 in the third frame, and 30-25 in the game, but couldn’t score a goal on Magnus Hellberg. Neither team was able to score on the power play.
