Morning Skate

Fill It Up: The Mavericks hung six goals on the Americans in Friday's game, flashing their ability to score in bunches as the team's first three goals came in a span of just 4:04 in the second period, then with a 4-1 lead to start the third the home team added two more just 1:08 apart.

Mr. 500: David Dziurzynski celebrated his 500th professional game in style last night with a pair of goals in a 6-2 win. Dziurzynski reached the impressive number having played in 26 NHL games, 387 in the NHL, 37 in the ECHL and 50 in the DEL.

RC4 Points: Rocco Carzo matched his season high with four points in last night's game - a goal and three assists - and had a hand in each of the team's first three goals. This was Carzo's second four-point outburst on the season, the previous coming Oct. 27 against Indy when he had two goals and two assists all in the first period.

A Historic Run: With last night's win, the Mavericks have now won six consecutive games against Allen, dating back to last season. This run is the longest win streak in team history against the Americans. The club will look to extend the streak to seven in tonight's game.

What To Watch For: Second period separation. The Mavericks scored four in the second in last night's game to put a stranglehold on the Friday night tilt and never looked back en route to the 6-2 win. On the year, Kansas City's best period is the second with a plus-8 scoring differential (25-18). It is the Americans' worst frame, Allen a minus-16 (20-36) in period two this season.
