Cyclones 4, Kansas City 3
Byron Ritchie scored with less than a minute to play Wednesday night to seal the win for Cincinnati.
Ritchie, streaking out of the defensive zone, jumped into the air to catch a Cyclones clearing pass from Jeremiah McCarthy and outskated two Blades' defensemen to the net. As he was knocked down from behind he flipped the puck past goaltender Corey Schwab's shoulder for his 24th goal of the year.
