BARRACUDA RACE PAST ROADRUNNERS 4-3 IN OTDec 4, 2022
San Jose, CA - The San Jose Barracuda (12-9-0-1) got a pair of goals from its captain Andrew Agozzino, including the overtime winner, to upend the Tucson Roadrunners (10-7-2-0) on Sunday night at Tech CU Arena, 4-3.
In the first, for the seventh consecutive game, the Barracuda would fall behind as Jean-Sebastien Dea (11) made it goals in five straight, cleaning up his own rebound at 7:34. The Barracuda would kill off the three power plays in the first and the game would remain 1-0 Roadrunners after 20 minutes.
In the second, Tucson would break through on its fourth power play as Michael Carcone (7), who sat out Saturday, fired a wrister inside the far post from the right wing at 12:24. Just a minute and 10 seconds later, Thomas Bordeleau (11), would make it goals in three straight, by tucking in a loose puck just off the right post after Ivan Prosvetov had initially stretched out his left leg to make a breakaway save on Tristen Robins. Then at 17:12, Danil Gushchin (6) would tie the score with a point shot on the power play. With the goal, the Barracuda have now scored on the man advantage in nine consecutive games, matching a franchise record.
In the third, again on the power play, Agozzino (6) would slide a rebound into an open net as he was parked on the back post at 3:31, but Adam Cracknell (6) would answer at 15:02, also on the power play, forcing overtime.
In overtime, Eetu Makiniemi would make a brilliant save on Carcone at 1:47 as Cam Hebig seamed it to him on a two-on-one, and then Agozzino would bury the game-winner on a two-on-one feed from William Eklund at 4:14, Agozzino’s 200th career AHL goal.
Makiniemi (6-4-1) earned the win by making a season-high 40 saves, while Prosvetov (6-4-1) suffered the loss, allowing four goals 32 shots.
