INDIANAPOPLIS 5, CYCLONES 3


Hymovitz puts 'em on ice with 2 goals

        INDIANAPOLIS — The Cincinnati Cyclones ended their franchise record-tying, seven-game road trip with a 5-3 loss at the Pepsi Coliseum against the Indianapolis Ice Friday night. Indianapolis all-star left wing Dave Hymovitz had a pair of goals.

        “We would have liked to close the trip on a high note,” Cyclones coach Ron Smith said. “It will be nice to come home and play a few at home for a change.”

        The Cyclones finish the regular season by playing 11 of their final 18 games at Firstar Center.

        Cincinnati is two points behind the Orlando Solar Bears for second place in the IHL's Northeast Division.

        The Cyclones opened the scoring when center Todd Simon fired a shot from 10-feet in front of the net passed Indianapolis goaltender Marc Lamothe at 4:44 of the first period.

        After Ice forward Mike Hall netted his 11th goal 21 seconds later to tie the score, Cincinnati left wing Scott Morrow rifled his 25th goal of the season to give the 'Clones a 2-1 lead.

        Before the period ended, Indianapolis tied the game at 2-2 when left wing Dave Hymovitz scored his first of his two goals, on a power play.

        In the second period, Cyclones left wing Jeff Shevalier lifted a wrist shot past Lamothe to give the club a 3-2 edge at 8:36. Indianapolis tied the game again at 3-3, when Cail MacLean scored his eighth goal of the year at 12:11. The Ice grabbed their first lead of the night when right wing Nathan Perrott scored his 10th goal at 17:59. The Ice sealed the game when Hymovitz tallied his second goal of the night and 38th of the season at 5:44 of the third period.

        Cyclones goaltender Brian Regan stopped 29 shots in taking the loss in his second start with the club.

        Cincinnati defenseman Jeff Wells collected his 100th assist as a pro and center Todd Simon scored his 20th goal of the season.
