The winning streak is the longest in the North American Hockey League this season.
After a scoreless first period, Ryner Gorowsky got the Ice Dogs on the board at 10:56 of the second period. Gorowsky fired a slap shot from the top of the right faceoff circle two seconds after an Ice Dogs power play had expired. Ethan Somoza and Hans Gorowsky had the assists on the goal, which was Ryner’s sixth of the season.
