Rush tops Colorado in overtime

By  | 

After falling behind three-goals-to-none in the third period Friday night, the Rapid City Rush stormed back, scoring three unanswered against the defending champion Colorado Eagles, forcing an overtime session, then potting the game winner.
Saturday, the two teams made their way to Rapid City for a showdown on the Rush's home ice.
Military Appreciation for a near-packed house.
1st period of action, Adam Vay was stellar in net for the Rush in the first, Colorado Ryan Harrison tests him, but the glove is there for Vay who only saw 4 shots all period.
Rush were puting in work, Matt Caito lets loose, but Eagles' netminder Sam Brittain just gets to the puck trickling behind him.
Colorado trying to work it out of their own zone, but watch Caito fly in, pokes the puck free, has a chance, but just can't finish the job.
Rush back to work later and Dante Salituro making his presence known, goes cross ice to Gustav Bouramman. He's just off the mark.
Later, more activity from Salituro, facilitating, fires over to Jimmy DeVito, but DeVito can't quite connect.
Rush were relentless in the first, Josh Elmes to Dutra and Brittain just gets a piece.
And a Jimmy DeVito goal provides the game-winner for the Rapid City Rush, extending its win streak to four games.
