October 31 in Indianapolis hockey history

1942: The Capitals beat the Pittsburgh Hornets 3-1. Jack Keating scores two goals, but a melee causes him to get six stitches and delays the game significantly as fans begin throwing pennies onto the ice, and the Hornets’ owner takes over the public address system to ask fans and players to stop fighting.

1946: The Capitals beat St. Louis 5-2, but it gets interesting when Flyers goaltender Hec Highton attacks a goal judge after briefly, inadvertently, putting the red light on in the second period. Highton started pushing his stick through the mesh above the boards, then went through the gate at the end of the rink. No goal was scored, Highton was given a game misconduct and two Flyer skaters ended up donning the goaltending pads – Stan Robertson and Tom Wilson. The Caps score once on each of the skaters and win the game 5-2. Tony Licari has two goals and an assist and Doug McCaig a goal and an assist in the win.

1958: The Chiefs begin their defense of the Turner Cup with a rematch of the previous spring’s championship series in Louisville. It’s also the coaching debut for Lou Silverman, who replaces Leo Lamoureux as the team’s coach. This one doesn’t go well for the Chiefs – Don Ragazio makes 24 saves to shut out the Chiefs 7-0. Cliff Hicks makes 40 saves in the loss. The IHL becomes a five-team loop with the loss of the formerly-powerful Cincinnati Mohawks in the offseason.

1963: A propane tank under the bleachers at the Fairgrounds Coliseum explodes, killing 74 people at an Ice Follies show. As the Coliseum is not able to be used for any spectator events, the Capitols move to Cincinnati and play the rest of the season as the Cincinnati Wings

1981: Mike Hordy has a goal and three assists and Red Laurence scores twice, but the Checkers fall 7-6 in overtime to Salt Lake at the Coliseum.

1990: Former Iceman Ron Handy scores twice to lift the Kansas City Blades to a 2-1 win over the Ice. Cam Russell scores for Indy.

1992: Alex Andrievski scores with 3:25 left to tie, and Sergei Krivokrasov scores 27 seconds later to beat Cincinnati 4-3. The two assisted on each other’s goals, with Ivan Droppa getting the second assist on each. Droppa also scored the Ice’s first goal of the night.

2009: Cab Morris spooks Waterloo’s offense on Halloween night, stopping all 28 of the Black Hawks’ shots in a 7-0 Ice romp at the Coliseum. Nick Bailen and Justin Agosta each have a goal and two assists. Sean Kuraly, Max Cook and Alex Wideman have a goal and an assist each.

2012: Drew Smolcynski nets a hat trick and an assist, but the Ice drop their 11th straight game by a 6-5 score in Youngstown. Robbie Baillargeon and Tyler Pham each have two assists in the loss.

2014: Matt White scores the Fuel’s first shorthanded goal midway through the second period of a 4-3 shootout win over Evansville. White also scores later in the game for a two-goal night.
