CORPUS CHRSTI, TX – The Amarillo Bulls hope to rekindle that winning combination tonight (Friday) when they take on the Corpus Christi IceRays the first of a two game road trip at American Bank Center at 7 pm.
It was a disappointing effort on Thursday night that saw the Bulls fall 4-3 on home ice to the New Mexico Mustangs. The visitors scored the game winner in the final two minutes of regulation time to snap a 3-3 tie.
The Bulls have posted 10 wins on the road this season, including two in Corpus Christi back in December. The season series has been dominated by Amarillo with four victories.
The South Division standings remain tight with the Bulls tied for second place with the Texas Tornado at 51 points. The Tornado visits Wenatchee Wild this weekend, while the division leading Topeka RoadRunners are off until Saturday when they host the Springfield Jr. Blues. The RoadRunners have a five point advantage over both the Bulls and the Tornado. The IceRays are four points back of the fourth and final playoff spot in the division that is currently being held by the Wichita Falls Wildcats.
Joe Kozlak and Matt Johnson have been a force offensively in recent games for Amarillo. Kozlak has netted five power play goals in his last six games, while Johnson has three goals and two assists in his last three games.
