ECHL Game Night 1/15: Texas @ Mississippi

After yielding the nets to Morgan Cey for a game, Ryan Munce was back between the pipes Tuesday night and backstopped the Sea Wolves to a 34 save 2-1 victory against the best team in the ECHL. For his stellar play in net against the Wildcatters, Munce earned First Star honors.

Munce is now 10-2 with a 1.97 GAA and 0.948 SV% on the season, leading the entire ECHL in both GAA and SV%. So far in the month of January 2008, Munce is an extraterrestrial 6-0 with a 1.31 GAA and 0.962 SV%. Hard to believe Munce not getting selected to the ECHL All-star game with these kind of numbers.

Mike Egener made his season debut tonight for the Wolves, but was held off the scoresheet.

G Ryan Munce: 60 MINS, 35 shots, 34 saves, 1 GA; *FIRST STAR*
