Mike Lampman (4) and Julian Talbot (3) scored power-play goals in regulation; Barry Tallackson (5) added to a 3-1 lead, only to see the home team come back to tie the game. Talbot also scored in the shootout, but it was Eller's spectacular exhibition of stick-handling and deking that got all the attention. It should be up on you-tube in no time. Don't miss it.
Ben Bishop made 26 saves, 14 in the first period alone. Eller and Jonas Junland also contributed with an assist each. The Rivs were 2/2 on the powerplay; Milwaukee 0-7. Chet Pickard made 13 saves taking the loss.
Peoria is now two games over five-hundred with 25 points and are now 4th in the West Division, trailing Texas (34 pts.), Rockford (27), Houston (26)...and ahead of Milwaukee (24), Chicago (23), and San Antonio (17).
