The Rivermen Report
Report for the Week Ending Jan. 22
The Rivermen returned to the road last weekend for two games in Texas, both of which resulted in four goal losses. Peoria is 20-19-2-1 this season and their 43 points rank fourth in the Midwest Division and tied for 10th in the Western Conference.

Jan. 20 – L 6-2 at Texas
Although Cade Faichild and Jonathan Cheechoo scored within 34 seconds to overcome an initial two-goal deficit, the Stars went on to score four goals in the last 30 minutes of regulation and won 6-2. Peoria finished scoreless on four man advantages while Texas went 2-for-5. Ben Bishop stopped 29 of 35 shots on goal in the loss and Andrew Raycroft saved 21 of 23.

Jan. 21 – L 5-1 at San Antonio
Evgeny Grachev scored his first goal for the Rivermen just 2:34 into the first period but San Antonio responded with five of their own en route to a 5-1 win. Former Rivermen defenseman Tyson Strachan netted the game winner on his third goal this season for the Rampage. Peoria went 1-for-4 on the power play while San Antonio finished 1-for-2. Bishop stopped 25 of 29 shots he faced.

Rivermen Report
  • Rivermen goaltender Ben Bishop was a recent addition to the AHL All-Star Game following an injury to Lake Erie netminder Cedrick Desjardins. This is the second straight season in which the Rivermen have had a goalie represent them after Jake Allen started the 2011 classic in Hershey, Pa.
  • Center T.J. Hensick’s 48 points (14g, 34a) still rank first in the Western Conference. Hensick has registered at least one point in 33 of his 42 games this season.
  • Phil McRae (four games) and Stefan Della Rovere (two games) are both expected to return to the lineup on Tuesday morning after suffering upper-body injuries.
  • The Rivermen power play ranks fourth in the AHL at 21.4%. The penalty kill is tied for ninth at 83.2%.
