Rockford, Ill. - Jeremy Langlois scored two goals to help the Rockford IceHogs (19-23-8-3) win their fifth straight game and extend their season-high point streak to eight with a 4-1 victory over the Cleveland Monsters (23-20-2-4) Friday night.
Langlois found the back of the net in the first and second periods, including what proved to be the game-winning goal at 5:24 into the opening frame. His two-point effort also extended his point streak to a season-high three straight games (3g-1a-4pts).
The Monsters notched their lone tally of the game on a four-on-five power play. Markus Hannikainen beat Lars Johansson on a feed from Daniel Zaar for the first power-play goal against the IceHogs in six games.
Johansson stopped each of the other 35 shots he faced from Cleveland’s offense.
Evan Mosey recorded a multi-point game and Spencer Abbott scored his team-leading 12th goal of the season in the win.
