Rivermen poised for season opener at Quad City

SPHL

PEORIA RIVERMEN

vs

QUAD CITY STORM

Saturday, TaxSlayer Center, Moline, 7:10 p.m.

 

2017-18 records: Peoria, 38-13-5 (1st in SPHL). Quad City (expansion in ’18-19).

Season series: first meeting of 16.

Head coaches: Peoria, Jean-Guy Trudel (6th yr, 175-73-32). Quad City, Dave Pszenyczny (1st yr) ...

 

BIG PICTURE: The Rivermen and expansion Storm renew an old rivalry that has been dormant since they last met on April 4, 2009 in the American Hockey League. The Rivermen were the Blues class-AAA farm club then, while Quad City belonged to Calgary. Peoria won that last game, 2-1, on the road in Moline. In fact, the Rivermen were 15-4-1 all-time against Quad City in the AHL before they went their separate ways. QC left the league after the 2008-09 season, and the Rivermen played on through 2012-13 before moving down to the SPHL. Now they meet again, for the first time in a decade. Peoria comes in as the defending William B. Coffey Trophy (regular-season points champion) and with three straight trips to the President’s Cup Finals. The captain who helped them get there, defenseman Dave Pszenyczny, is now a rookie head coach for Quad City and tasked with helping launch that market’s post-ECHL era. ...

RIVER READINGS: ... Rivermen fans can gather for a watch party at the Bullpen Sports Bar and Grill at Landmark. The venue will host fans for every road game again this season. The game will be live on a big-screen TV (120 inches) and food and drink specials will be available. ...

End of regulation time, 3-3.  Peoria's Joe Kalisz thought he had scored the game winner with less than a second left, but it did not count.  On to OT, 5 minutes of 3-on-3 hockey.

Rivermen fall 4-3 in OT on a night of rebirth for a franchise, renewal of a rivalry

MOLINE — It was a renewal of an old rivalry and the re-birth of a franchise Saturday, complete with a dramatic script.

More than just a game, it was a celebration before the puck ever dropped.

The Peoria Rivermen and Quad City Storm traded penalty shots in sudden-death overtime -- Quad City made its chance -- and Peoria saw a two-goal lead in the third period turn into a 4-3 loss in OT before 6,508 at TaxSlayer Center.

The Rivermen were in Moline for the first time in a decade, when the two cities both had teams in the American Hockey League. Peoria won that last meeting here, 2-1, in what was then i Wireless Center.

There were players on the ice back then named Manny Legace, Chris Porter, Yan Stastny, Trent Whitfield for Peoria, and Kyle Greentree, Brett Sutter, Anders Ericksson and Peter Vandermeer for Quad City.

Saturday launched a different era, different names, but for a while looked like business as usual for a Peoria team that went 7-3-0 here against Quad City in the AHL. ...
