Eugene, OR – The Eugene Generals (23-18) and goaltender Chris Beadles set a couple records tonight at Lane Events Center-Ice for Fan Appreciation Night as they posted their second consecutive shutout with a 5-0 victory over the Puget Sound Tomahawks (14-28). The Generals have never posted two shutouts in a row and Beadles in only his fourth start in a Generals uniform is the first Generals goaltender to earn two shutouts.
“I’m happy that the guys are starting to string together good performances and playing a lot more consistent than they have in the past,” Generals Head Coach Chris Hartly stated after the game. “That’s exactly the kind of momentum we need going into the playoffs, where we’re focusing on taking care of our end first and letting it go from there.”
The Tomahawks played with a short bench tonight, but the Generals didn’t come into the game overconfident. The Generals peppered Tomahawks goaltender Paul Senger with 63 shots, but Senger played an incredible game to hold the Generals to just five goals.
Beadles wasn’t tested too much with only 20 saves, but he was able to stop every puck that came his way. At the end of the game, that is all you can ask from your goaltender. Three different Generals had multiple point nights. Lucas Romero added a goal to his team leading 31 and added two assists. Troy Mytinger was the Big Town Hero of the game with two goals and an assist, and Ryan Schank added two assits.
The Generals will travel to Pasco, WA next Friday to face the Tri-City Titans for the last weekend series of the season for the Generals. Both games will be broadcast on GiTV in audio only. For more information on upcoming games and GiTV please visit eugenegenerals.com.
