Game Recap: Pensacola Ice Flyers 3, Mississippi RiverKings 2

With 3:48 remaining in the third period and the game tied at two, Mississippi RiverKings antagonizer Corey Bellamy lost his temper – and it may have cost his team valuable points in the standings. Bellamy took what appeared to be an unintentional stick to the face from Pensacola Ice Flyers forward John Clewlow. Despite the crucial late-game situation, Bellamy jumped Clewlow on the side boards and started throwing punches. The referee put Bellamy in the penalty box on a minor roughing call, and the Ice Flyers capitalized on the power play. Adam Pawlick netted the game winner from the right face-off dot past Kings goalie Pete Di Salvo, and the Flyers held on to win. There may be further bad news for the RiverKings, as captain Leo Thomas was ejected for spearing a Pensacola player with his stick. Thomas’ actions have resulted in a suspension from the SPHL.  The loss breaks the RiverKings’ five-game winning streak, and Ice Flyers goalie Matt Zenzola picks up his fourth win of the young season.
