Shreveport 0 @ Corpus Christi 3 - The Corpus Christi IceRays earned their first shutout of the season with a 3-0 blanking of the Shreveport Mudbugs on Thursday morning at the American Bank Center in front of 6,046 students from the Corpus Christi area. After the first half of the period was spent going back and forth in the neutral zone, the IceRays took control and scratched across the game’s first goal, which would go on to be the game-winner. At 10:26, IceRays forward David Thomson swiped the puck away in the offensive end and found forward Josh Tripp on the back door for a one-time shot to push ahead, 1-0. Later on in the frame at 14:32, IceRays defenseman Cody Fleckenstein stole a pass behind the Mudbugs net and tucked home a wraparound shot to double the lead, 2-0. The IceRays outshot the Mudbugs 16-4 in the opening frame.  In the 3rd period, a late man-advantage allowed the Mudbugs to pull their netminder, but despite being shorthanded 6-on-4, IceRays forward Brad Power sealed the win with a clear from his own blue line for the second-straight game with a team power play goal and the 3-0 final score. IceRays goaltender Camden Burggrabe earned the first shutout of the season, stopping all 20 shots faced, while Mudbugs goalie John Roberts halted 32 of 34 shots. Boxscore
