Salt Lake City, Utah - The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild, were shutout for the second game in a row by the Utah Grizzlies. 5-0 was the final on Friday night as the Americans drop to 4-12-0-2 on the season.

The Americans got off to a fast start in the opening period outshooting the Grizzlies 7-0 over the first five minutes of the game, but things would turn quickly. The Grizzlies top line was dominant again as Caleb Herbert ripped one past Jeremy Brodeur for his 15th goal of the season. Herbert's linemate Cole Ully, setup Herbert for a one-timer from the left face-off-circle to put Utah up 1-0.

The Grizzlies would score three more times on the power play in the second period to put the game away. Utah was 3 for 7 with the man-advantage, while Allen was 0 for 4.

Utah's netminder Joe Cannata was perfect again stopping all 35 Allen shots on goal. That was his third shutout in a row with a 4-0 win over Indy last weekend and a 4-0 victory over Allen on Wednesday night. Allen has been shutout their last six periods of hockey and have only scored two goals total in their last three games.

"It's obviously very frustrating losing like this, but we have to trust the process and stay positive," said Americans Captain Joel Chouinard. "We're showing some really good things out there, but we can't keep making the same mistakes over and over, and it starts with me."

The Americans look to end their two-game skid tomorrow night as they wrap up a three-game series with the Utah Grizzlies. Puck drop is at 8:05 pm.
