Black Hawks Score Tuesday Night Victory In Party Town
Jared Moe made 20 saves and Waterloo scored two in the second period and two in the third for a 4-0 shutout of the Sioux City Musketeers at Young Arena.
Moe was "money" as it was the second time in as many home starts that he has blanked an opponent. The veteran goalie and the Black Hawks won by the same score on New Year’s Eve versus the Madison Capitols.
Moe’s best sequence came in the closing seconds of the middle period when he made a left-to-right save on Jordan Steinmetz, then got back to the opposite post to deny a wraparound. A video review confirmed the second save.
The Black Hawks broke through in the second period with scores from Vladislav Firstov and Ryan Drkulec.
Leading scorer Matej Blumel doubled the lead in the third with his 20th and 21st goals of the season.
The Black Hawks return to the ice for a home-and-home Dupaco Cowbell Cup weekend versus the Dubuque Fighting Saints, beginning Friday on the road at Mystique Ice Center. For tickets, call the box office at 319-232-3444.
