The 1-0 Cyclones lead held up throughout the remainder of the first, and in the second Cincinnati pushed their lead to 2-0, 4:30 in, when Marnell returned the favor and fed Vaive in the right circle where he launched it in, giving the Cyclones a two-goal advantage.

Kalamazoo managed to cut their deficit in half after the second on a goal from Kyle Blaney, however at the 14:06 mark of the third, Powell deked his way around a defender in the slot and snapped a shot in past Asmundson to put Cincinnati back ahead by two, 3-1. The Cyclones wrapped up the victory with 1:40 left when Aquin buried an empty-netter from the neutral zone to seal Cincinnati's 4-1 win.

The Cyclones were outshot, 32-23 on the evening, with goaltender Jonas Johansson stopping 31 in the win. The Cyclones continue their three-game weekend on Saturday evening against the Indy Fuel. Face-off is scheduled for 7:35pm ET.
