Inside the Box Score - Week Seven

Stats You'll Love from Sunday's Win

2/15/2017

In the Mammoth’s 10-9 overtime win over the Stealth in British Columbia on Sunday, Colorado accomplished the following:

  • The team has now won its last EIGHT regular-season games that have gone to overtime. The current coaching staff is a perfect 7-0 in OT games in the regular season. The Mammoth’s last regular-season overtime loss was to Sunday’s opponent in January, 2014.
  • No other team in the NLL has won more than two-straight regular-season overtime games.
  • Playing in his third NLL game, forward Brent Adams scored his first three NLL goals. His short-handed goal in the second quarter put him on the scoresheet. Adams’ overtime tally gave Colorado the win.
  • Adams’ five-point night led the Mammoth.
  • Zack Greer celebrated his birthday with a power-play marker in the third, and the equalizer with 26 seconds left in regulation. He also recorded an assist on the game-winner.
  • The Mammoth held the Stealth without a goal in the second quarter. It’s the third time this season Colorado has blanked an opponent in a quarter, while the Mammoth has scored at least once in every quarter in every game this year. In Sunday’s contest, goaltender Dillon Ward denied Corey Small on a penalty shot in the second.
  • Colorado held Vancouver scoreless for 23-minutes, seven-seconds from the first to the third quarters. It’s the longest the team has kept an opponent off the board in a game this year.
  • Forward Eli McLaughlin tied a career-high with four assists, including a helper on the game-winner. His previous four-assist games? January 23, 2016 at Vancouver in a win, and March 29, 2015 in a win. Against who, you might ask? Vancouver, of course!
  • After going without a goal for 13 games dating back to last season, defenseman Joey Cupido has now scored in three of his last four. Sunday’s two-goal outing was his second in less than a month, and moved him into a tie for the NLL league among defensemen with five goals.
  • Cupido and Greg Downing are tied for second in the NLL with 13 caused turnovers, one shy of the League-lead.
  • Defenseman Cam Holding had a game-high 12 loose balls on Sunday. He’s now reached double-digits in loose balls in four of the last five games, which sets a new single-season career-high for games with double-digit loosies. Holding’s 58 loose balls this season are third in the NLL.

The Mammoth visits Saskatchewan on Saturday in a battle for first place in the West Division.
