Streaking Aces players (um, well, not literally)

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

The Alaska Aces are streaking on several fronts -- literally in an on-ice sense, not in nakedness. Because, that would be really cold, being in a rink and all.

Anyhow, with today's 4-0 series-clincher over Bakersfield, the Aces have won seven straight games.

And several players own substantial point streaks.

Peter Sivak is pretty much out of control. He had another one goal and two assists today to give him 4-6--10 and +10 totals in the three-game sweep of the Condors. Word is he might be credited with an additional assist Sunday, which would give him a ridiculous 11 points in three games. As it is now, he owns 5-8--13 totals in his five-game point streak.

Sivak leads the league in scoring with 5-13--18 totals in eight games. 

Tim Coffman, who had an assist today, owns 3-7--10 totals in his six-game point streak. Coffman is fifth in league scoring with 4-7--11 totals in eight games.

Evan Trupp, with one goal and one helper today, has 1-7--8 totals in his five-game point streak. He's tied for sixth in league scoring with 3-7--10 totals in eight games.

Brendan Connolly had a goal today to give him 3-5--8 totals in his five-game point streak.

And captain Nick Mazzolini, with an assist today, owns 2-5--7 totals in his five-game point streak.

Not to mention, the Aces put together a scoring streak collectively -- they bagged the last 14 goals of the series against Bakersfield and held the Condors scoreless in the last 149:03 of the series.

Oh, another streak -- rookie goaltender Laurent Brossiot (2-0-0) has delivered consecutive shutouts and has not permitted any of the 40 ECHL shots he has faced to dent his net.

Lastly, Brossoit is the first Aces goaltender in their 11 ECHL regular seasons to deliver back-to-back shutouts. The Aces have four shutouts -- Joni Ortio, currently up with AHL Abbotsford has the other two -- in eight games.
