ROCKFORD, IL – The Rockford IceHogs (9-9-1-1) generated multiple scoring chances in the opening minutes, but the Henderson Silver Knights (9-6-1-1) settled down and skated away with a 5-0 win at BMO Harris Bank Center Friday night. Silver Knights goaltender Logan Thompson made 23 saves for the shutout victory.

After surviving an early push from the IceHogs in the opening moments including a pair of power plays, the Silver Knights began the game scoring at 13:09 off the stick of defenseman Danil Miromanov. The Silver Knights found space off the right-wing faceoff circle he slid in his third goal of the season under the pads of goalie Collin Delia (L, 28 saves on 33 shots).

The Silver Knights carried the momentum into the second period and added three more markers for a 4-0 advantage through 40 minutes of play. Forward Pavel Dorofeyev netted his team-leading seventh goal of the season 1:55 in to double the lead. On the penalty kill, forward Maxim Marushev was tripped up on a shorthanded breakaway to setup a penalty shot. He would capitalize at 16:51 for his third goal of the season. Forward Paul Cotter capped the period scoring with 16 seconds to spare while on the power play for this fourth goal of the season.

In a highly physical third period, Silver Knights forward Jermaine Loewen wrapped up the contest with his third marker of the campaign at 7:09. The IceHogs finished the contest 0-for-3 on the power play while the Silver Knights went 1-for-4.
