READING, PA – Eamon McAdam's 43 saves were not enough on Sunday afternoon as the Thunder (5-3-0-1) were shutout by the Royals (6-3-1-0) 1-0 in Reading.
Royals' forward Ralph Cuddemi scored the lone goal of the game early in the second period after Reading put 25 shots on Adirondack's cage in the first period alone. The Thunder were outshot 44-27 and managed to outshoot the Royals 15-4 in the third. Reading netminder Felix Sandstrom earned his first ECHL shutout in his team's victory.
Both teams had two powerplays in the matchup and both failed to capitalize on any of their man-advantage opportunities.
- Jimmy Mazza's pass sent Ralph Cuddemi into the offensive zone on a 2-on-1 that Cuddemi finished by banking it off of the skate of McAdam and into the back of the net. The goal was Cuddemi's sixth of the season and was scored at 2:11 of the second period.
- First time of the 2019-20 season that Adirondack has been shutout
- Nikita Popugaev received a minus on the Royals goal and is now a +5 rating in 9 games so far this season
