The Eagles will host the Tucson Roadrunners for a rematch at the Budweiser Events Center tonight. After falling to the Roadrunners last night, Colorado will be seeking revenge.
Friday night’s matchup saw the return of forward Martin Kaut, who scored the Eagles' lone goal, goaltender Pavel Francouz who allowed 3 goals on 18 shots and forward Gabriel Fontaine who was handed a penalty for interference.
Colorado consistently outshot Tuscon with 32 shots on goal to the Roadrunners’ 19 shots. The Eagles went 0-for-3 on the power play and went 2-for-4 on the penalty kill during last night’s matchup.
Colorado is still searching for their first win against Tuscon this season.
