River Otters Outduel Outlaws 3-2

November 3, 2004 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) - Missouri River Otters News Release

Led by Justin Quenneville’s three point night and timely saves from Kevin Reiter, the Missouri River Otters dispatched the Kansas City Outlaws 3-2 Wednesday night at the Family Arena.

The Otters got the scoring started early in the first period. Quenneville made a terrific spin move behind the Outlaws net and found a wide open Jim Montgomery. The high flying center buried the puck behind Outlaws goalie Maxime Gingras for his seventh goal of the season. Kansas City scored the next two goals, however, to take a 2-1 lead into the first intermission. Those goals came off the sticks of Brad Kenny and Joe Seroski.

The second period was all Otters, and they tied the game eight minutes in. Quenneville took a pass from Glenn Detulleo, skated the length of the ice, and beat Gingras with a wicked wrister for his third goal of the year. The period was highlighted by some tremendous saves from Reiter, who shone brightly for the second consecutive game.

The Otters came out strong in the third period, and took the lead on a two man advantage. After numerous scintillating saves from Gingras, Missouri finally scored on the power play with a blast from defenseman Riku Varjamo. Chris Bell’s line shut down the Outlaws top line of Steve Yetman, Jason Ruff, and Seroski, and the Otters skated off with the 3-2 victory.

Reiter was sensational in net, picking up his first professional victory with 18 saves, while Gingras also was tremendous, making 37 saves on 40 shots. The Otters next play at the Family Arena Saturday night against the Rockford Icehogs, and all the action can be heard on KSLQ 104.5
