A total of 15 different San Diego players recorded a point as the Gulls defeated the San Jose Barracuda 8-3 today at SAP Center. San Diego's eight goals scored ties the single-game club record set on two previous occasions (last: Nov. 17, 2017 vs. TUC). With 173 goals on the season, San Diego has their highest goal total through 48 games in club history (155 in 2017-18). San Diego has points in 23 of 27 (19-4-2-2), in addition to points in 15 of their last 17 road games (11-2-2-2).

Sam Carrick scored two power-play goals, his 23rd and 24th goals of the season, tying him for third in goals among AHL leaders this season. He also added an assist for a three-point game (2-1=3) to mark his 11th career multi-goal game and 43rd career multi-point game.

Chase De Leo netted his 16th goal of the season with 20 seconds remaining in the first period, extending his career high point streak to eight games (7-4=11).

Sam Steel netted a goal 15:24 into the second period and an assist for his sixth multi-point game of 2018-19. His two-point performance gives him 13-17=30 points on the season.
Trevor Murphy recorded two points (1-1=2), including his eighth goal of the season 3:17 into the second period and an assist on the power play, marking his 22nd career multi-point game. He now has 1-2=3 points in his previous three games.
Corey Tropp scored a goal for the fifth consecutive game with a goal at 12:29 of the third period with his 16th goal of the season. The five-game goal streak (6-1=7) ties the longest of his career, set Feb. 28-Mar. 10, 2017 (5-3=8). Kalle Kossila recorded an assist on the play for his third consecutive game with a point (1-3=4).
Ben Street scored 9:03 into the second period and picked up his eighth assist of the season on the first Carrick goal. His multi-point effort marks the 104th of his AHL career. His goal would end as the game-winner, his second this season and the 30th of his career.
Alex Dostie added San Diego's eighth and final goal at the 13:16 mark of the third period.
Ben Thomson, Keaton Thompson, Korbinian Holzer, Jack Kopacka and Jacob Larsson all picked up assists throughout the game.

San Diego Gulls
On the game
It was a good game. Right from top to bottom, everyone played well tonight. We had a good start and we stuck with it. It was good to build off of that.
On Jeff Glass
He was huge. We saw a couple of big saves by him on their power play. Throughout the game, (he was) just so calm and steady in there. He gives us a lot of confidence that we can play our game. We can play our game and make plays. If there's a breakdown, we know he's going to be in there standing tall for us
Head Coach Dallas Eakins
On the game
(Jeff Glass) played very well and made critical saves when we needed them. After that, we scored when presented the opportunity and I think that's one great thing about our team. We are a dangerous group and you don't want to give us much.
On momentum and confidence
We were getting chances, but we couldn't find the net early. We put a couple over the net, one wide, but then guys were able to stick with it. When they started hitting the net and going in, it was like an avalanche.
On special teams
Patience and I sticking with what works. I think a lot of times, when things aren't going right, there is a certain panic to change things and we decided not to do that. Just stick with these guys and they know each other well on those units. I think just the patience with the power play is critical.
