North American Juniors Game Night: 3-3-12

USHL

Cedar Rapids Roughriders 4 @ Tri-City Storm 1

G Adam Wilcox, TC: Loss, 18 saves on 22 shots
Season Totals (with Tri-City): 24 GP, 11-13-1, 3.14 GAA, .910 sv%, 1 SO
Season Totals (with Green Bay): 9 GP, 7-2-0, 2.27 GAA, .918 sv%, 2 SO

Wilcox and the Storm have spent the last two months crawling up the standings to make a run at the playoffs, but two bad losses this weekend could be a sign the surge could be ending. Wilcox had a pedestrian night in net after earning four or five first stars in the past few weeks. Fortunately for the Storm Sioux City continues to lose so Tri-City is still within a point of the final spot.
