The Cataractes (2-9-2) have now dropped eight games in a row and have been outscored 14-1 in their last two outings.

Marvin Cupper stopped 22-of-27 shots in a losing effort.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
