That Was Fast: Mark Cooper set an ECHL record during Saturday's game at Allen with his empty-netter to seal the victory and week-long sweep of the Americans. Cooper's goal, his second of the game, came just two seconds after Allen struck to make the score 4-3 - the shortest amount of time between two goals in the ECHL's 30-year history.
We're Going Streaking: The Mavericks have won six consecutive games, dating back to an Oct. 26 setback against Tulsa. Within that span, Kansas City has outscored opponents 28-14 en route to taking over first place in the Mountain Division.
Super Cooper: Mark Cooper's stellar season continues as he enters Tuesday's game against Tulsa on a six-game scoring streak, having totaled 11 points (4g,7a) in that span. Over the weekend, Cooper added four points on two goals and two assists. He had a hand in each goal against Wichita in the teams' only meeting earlier in the year, including the game-winning goal in overtime and an assist on David Dziurzynski's regulation strike.
A Historic Start: At 8-1-1-0 through 10 games, the Mavericks are off to their best-ever start in the ECHL era and second-best in franchise history. The lone season that started with more heat than this one was the 2013-14 Governor's Cup-winning squad of the Central Hockey League, a season that started 9-1 and that finished with 90 points in a 66-game schedule.
Perfect at Home: The Mavericks come into Tuesday's game against Wichita with a perfect 5-0 record on home ice. Kansas City is joined by only Toledo in home-ice perfection, but the Walleye have played two fewer games in their home barn.
