Omaha Nets Three Power Play Goals in VictoryOctober 19, 2012 - United States Hockey League (USHL) Tri-City Storm
Johnny Hrabovsky scored his first career USHL goal in his sixty-first game in the first period. Hrabovsky took a pass from Jason Cotton, who got his first career point on the play, and beat Omaha goaltender Alex Lyon.
Hrabovsky's goal cut the Omaha lead to 3-1 before the end of the first period. Tri-City got within one goal early on in the second period when Michael Vecchione scored his second goal of the season off a pass from Brian Ward. Trevor Moore was credited with the second assist on a goal scored 7:10 into the second period.
But penalties eventually doomed the Storm and on a night where Omaha scored three power play goals in seven chances, the Lancers got two consecutive man-advantage strikes from Kenny Gillespie to widen their lead to 5-2.
The final Tri-City goal was scored by Trevor Moore in the third period. Moore wristed a shot past Lyon after taking a pass from Vecchione and cut the Omaha lead down to 5-3. Cutler Martin was credited with his second assist of the night.
The Lancers added two empty net goals and a shorthanded tally by Jake Randolph on a breakaway late in the third period to put the game out of reach.
The two teams will complete the series Saturday night at the Viaero Event Center. The puck is scheduled to drop at 7:05 p.m.
