1976: The famed Kim Clackson-Nick Fotiu fight takes place in Hartford. With the Racers down 2-1, Clackson tangles with, and beats Fotiu in a fight made legendary by Bob Lamey?s description and immortalized on the Racers? 45rpm record released that year. The Racers rallied from a 4-2 deficit to tie the game on goals by Blair MacDonald and Rene Leclerc, the last coming with 80 seconds left in regulation. The tie launches the Racers on a run that would eventually win the division.

1995: Daniel Gauthier has three assists in a 4-2 win over San Diego at MSA. Steve Dubinsky scores twice. Andy MacIntyre and Hugo Belanger each have a goal and an assist.

1996: Eric Lecompte and Mike Prokopec score 13 seconds apart, giving the Ice a 2-0 lead 2:50 into the game against Fort Wayne. Despite a Komets goal five minutes later, Jim Waite makes 29 saves to make it stand up in a 2-1 win. The two goals are three seconds off the club record.

1998: Todd White has a big day, scoring the Ice’s first hat trick of the season and assisting on the other two goals in a 6-5 shootout win over Grand Rapids. His three goals were a natural hat trick, coming at 5:04, 10:01 and 11:18 of the second period, two of which came on the power play. He assisted on Brian Felsner’s goal 12 seconds into the game — a club record — and Len Esau’s goal at 16:44 of the third that gave the Ice a brief 5-4 lead. Esau and Andy MacIntyre scored in the shootout to seal the win. Petri Varis added three assists in the game. The win came in front of 12,208 at MSA. It’s the first natural hat trick in club history.

2009: A crowd of 11,120 fills Conseco Fieldhouse for Pack the House Night, but the Ice fall 2-1 to Cedar Rapids. Mikael Owilli scores for the Ice.

2010: A Pack the House Night crowd of 11,092 sees the Ice beat Team USA 6-2. Max Cook has two goals and an assist in the game.

2014: In what would be a Clark Cup Final preview, the Ice dominate in a 6-2 victory over Waterloo at Pan Am Pavilion. Brian Pinho continues his hot streak with two goals. Vince Pedrie and Austin Kosack have two assists. Ryan Mantha, Scott Conway, Aidan Muir and Pinho give the Ice a 4-0 lead – Conway and Muir’s goals both come in the final 52 seconds of the first period. Tim Shoup later scores to make it 5-1 in the second.

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!
