ECHL roundup: Cincy wins in short OT, takes 2-1 series lead

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Well, the Cincinnati Cyclones certainly didn't let the sting of surrendering a game-tying and overtime-forcing goal in the last minute of regulation against the Greenville Road Warriors sting them for too long.

Cincy's Jonathan Hazen scored just 16 seconds into extra time tonight on the road to give the Cyclones a 5-4 win and a 2-1 series lead in the ECHL's best-of-7 Eastern Conference finals.

Greenville tied the game with Kyle Jean's sixth-attacker goal with 47 seconds left in regulation. That strike came after Cincy's Zach Budish gave his club a 4-3 lead with less than six minutes left in regulation, courtesy of his second goal of the game.

Game 4 is Saturday at Greenville.
