Sunday Slapshot: 10/22

By  | 

The Rapid City Rush didn't get the start it wanted this season, losing the first two games to Allen last week.
This weekend, the Rush took the road for the first time this season, looking for a little redemption.
We'll break down the week that was in this week's Sunday Slapshot.

The Rapid City Rush went down to Wichita, Kansas to play the Thunder - new to the Mountain Division this year... Here's a look at Saturday's game. Wichita got on the board first with two goals in the first period. In the 2nd period, Darik Angeli netted a goal for the Rush to cut Wichita's lead to 1. But the Thunder would score one more before the game was over.

The Wichita Thunder got the 3-1 win on Saturday night.
The Rush took the ice against the Thunder again today. Wichita came out hot with 5 goals in the first 11-and-a-half minutes of the contest. The Rush netted 2, but that wasn't enough as Wichita got the 5-2 win to sweep the weekend set.

After week two of games, let's take a look at the standings in the Mountain Division. There are three undefeated teams -- Colorado at the top of the standings, Wichita is tied with 8 points in second, and Allen is in 3rd winning all three of its games so far. Idaho, Utah and Tulsa are in 4th, 5th and 6th place this week. Followed by Rapid City who rounds out the standings in 7th.

Here's a look at the upcoming schedule. The Rush go head to head with division rival, Colorado. The first game is in Eagle territory on Friday, and then the teams head to Rapid City for a Saturday contest.
Then Rush host the Brampton Beast of the North Division for a three game set to kick off the first week of November.
