Justin Florek headlined the weekend for Bridgeport tallying all three goals for the Sound Tigers and recording his first career hat trick in Sunday’s win over the Penguins.

MAVERICKS SPLIT WEEK; LOSE LEADING SCORER FOR THE YEAR

Missouri: 46-8-3-2, (97 points), 1st in Central Division, 1st in Western Conference, 1st in the ECHL

The playoff-bound Missouri Mavericks added to their league-leading point total this week going 1-1-0 including a 3-1 win over the Tulsa Oilers on Friday.  The Mavs dropped Wednesday night’s tilt in Allen 4-2, but are still the only ECHL team to have clinched a playoff spot.

On Saturday, the Mavericks announced they will be without leading scorer Jesse Root, who is set to have surgery on a lower-body injury, for the remainder of the season.  Root is currently ranked tied for fifth in the ECHL (with teammate Tyler Barnes) in points with 59 (26G, 33A). Root was voted the team MVP on Monday.

The Mavs will look to surpass the 100-point mark this week with games against all three Central Division foes on the road. Missouri will faceoff against Allen on Wednesday, Tulsa on Friday and Wichita On Saturday.
