3/31 vs. Toledo: W 5-4 SO

After going 0-6-0 against Toledo in the first five months of the season, the Chiefs were able to pick up consecutive wins against the Walleye in a span of six days. Last Wednesday's shootout win was one of the most entertaining games of the season; a see-saw contest that each team had a turn leading and was tied on five different occasions, including 0-0. The Chiefs held leads at 1-0, 2-1, and 3-2 thanks to goals from Bear Trapp, Troy Schwab (SH), and Sean Berkstresser. However, a pair of Evan Rankin scores kept Toledo within striking distance and in the third period strike they did. Scooter Smith and Jonathan Carlsson tallied 2:52 apart and Toledo had its first lead at 4-3 with 9:19 left to play. The Chiefs tied the game with a dramatic penalty shot score from Jeff Martens at 13:11, and the game would head to overtime. In the extra frame the Walleye outshot the Chiefs 5-2, but Kris Mayotte turned in some stellar saves to reach the shootout. The Chiefs' third shooter, Jim McKenzie, and Toledo's fifth, Chris Robertson, traded scores and forced extra frames. Mayotte came through with a diving glove save on Rankin to set the stage for Jonathan Ralph's winner in the sixth round. It was Ralph's first shootout attempt of the season.

4/2 at Cincinnati: L 1-5

A win by the Chiefs last Friday would have given them their first winning record at US Bank Arena since the 2006-07 campaign, but it wasn't in the cards. In front of over 10,000 fans in their regular season home finale, the Cyclones raced out to a 3-0 first-period lead on goals by Jason Josza, Brett Robinson, and Dustin Sproat. Early in the second Jim McKenzie brought the Chiefs back within two on a nifty backhand shot that beat Jeremy Smith. Johnstown managed 18 shots in the second period, but Smith held the fort after McKenzie's tally. Josza scored again on John Murray with just over three minutes left in the second and seemed to take the wind out of the Chiefs' sails. Each team managed only five shots in the final frame, and Cincinnati's Doug Krantz was able to slap home a power play goal with 10:48 gone by in the final frame. Murray turned in 26 saves in taking the loss.

4/3 vs. Elmira: L 3-5

Last Saturday was the Chiefs' final chance to pick up a win against the Jackals this season. Prospects looked good as Johnstown had gone 4-2-2 in eight home games coming in and Elmira was riding a seven-game (0-5-2) losing streak. Elmira, however, wanted to play the role of party spoiler and never trailed in the Chiefs' final home game. Wes Cunningham and R.J. Anderson put the first two past Kris Mayotte, but Dan Collins gave the Chiefs life on a power play goal with 17:18 gone by in the first. Johnstown wouldn't get any closer, though, and three unanswered goals by the Jackals, two from Chaz Johnson, put the game out of reach at 5-1. Johnstown refused to go away quietly and brought the noise with two fights and two goals in the third. Jon Ralph had a spirited tilt with Matt Lowry while Jeff Martens tangeled with Johnson. Collins added a 4-on-3 power play goal at 18:43 and Troy Schwab closed out the scoring with his 18th goal of the season with just 10 seconds left to play.
