Cyclones' forward Daryl Moore got on the board first in the third, with a shorthanded goal at the 10:03 mark. However, Columbus quickly answered with a goal of their own at the 19:19 mark and another emptynetter to put a cap on the night for the Cyclones. Final score, Columbus 5, Pee Dee 3. The Cyclones will travel to Fayetteville tomorrow afternoon to face the FireAntz. Game time is set for 4:00PM. Pee Dee will return to home ice on February 8th.
