Previewing This Week
Fri., March 10 vs. Allen - 7:35 p.m. | Home vs. ALN (1-3-0), Away vs. ALN (1-3-1)
The Mavericks entertain Allen for the third time in their last four home games this Friday. The Americans grabbed a pair of wins last Friday and Saturday by scores of 3-1 and 4-2, respectively. The Mavericks won their first home game this season against Allen back on November 15 by a 5-3 score but, including a 1-0 loss on Nov. 30, haven't scored more than two goals at home against Allen in the last three meetings. Including Friday's game, the Mavericks will face the Americans four more times over the month of March. Wichita (five times) is the only opponent the Mavericks will face more than Allen between now and the end of the season.
Sun., March 12 vs. Tulsa - 4:05 p.m., | Home vs. TUL (2-1-1), Away vs. TUL (4-2-0)
Last Sunday's 6-3 home win over Tulsa gave the Mavericks their fourth consecutive victory over the Oilers. It was, however, Missouri's first home win over Tulsa since the 10-3 triumph back on November 5. The Mavericks have out-scored the Oilers by a combined 17-7 margin over the course of the win streak and have scored three goals or more in each of the four games. Tulsa, which has played the most games in the ECHL entering the week with 61, will be off the entire week until Sunday's visit to Silverstein Eye Centers Arena. It will also be the fourth consecutive Sunday the Mavericks and Oilers have faced off.
Recapping Last Week
Fri., March 3 vs. Allen: L 1-3

Sat., March 4 vs. Allen: L 2-4

Sun., March 5 vs. Tulsa: W 6-3
The Mavericks snapped their mini-two game skid with a six-goal outburst against Tulsa. Six different Mavericks players scored in the win, while Dan Correale (1g, 2a) paced the offence with a three-point night.
Full Recap >>>
- Dan Correale is off to a hot start in March. His three-point effort (1g, 2a) on March 5 set a single-game career high for the rookie forward. He has a three-game point streak (1g, 4a) to start the month and his 32 points (10g, 22a) are tied for 14th most among ECHL rookies.
- The Mavericks racked up 92 combined penalty minutes in their three games last week. Jacob Doty led the way individually with 33. Despite the uptick over the weekend, the Mavericks' 785 penalty minutes on the season are second fewest in the Mountain Division and fifth-fewest in the Western Conference.
- Kevin Tansey is riding a career-best four-game goal streak (4g), and over the Mavericks' last six games he has accounted for six of their 21 goals (29%). His 12 goals are tied for fourth most among ECHL defensemen, and are the most by a Mavericks defenseman in their ECHL era. The club record for goals in a season is 14 set by David Pszenyczny in 2011-12.
- The Mavericks enter play this week three points behind the Alaska Aces for the Mountain Division's final playoff spot. Alaska has played one fewer game than the Mavericks, but will make that up this week with four games on its schedule compared to Missouri's two. The Aces are on the road for a pair of games each in Colorado and Rapid City.
