You would believe a man can fly - Danny Battochio was stellar in net for the Rush for the second night in a row (click photo to enlarge)

Brahmas can't catch a break on the road

Rush win home finale 4-1

The Texas Brahmas lost their final road game of the season on Wednesday night; the second in a row to the Rapid City Rush. Like the night before, a single goal was the measure of the Texas offense.

With the loss, the Brahmas record goes to 31-25-7. Their road record this season ends at 9-19-4; the worst since the 2005-06 season, when the then Fort Worth Brahmas went 9-20-3.

I'll have more on the game soon - just got back from Rapid City and lots to do. Keep an eye on my Flickr site as I've started editing photos the meantime, some stats.

Joe Palmer made 37 saves on 41 shots faced and takes the loss. His record goes to 12-10-4-3. Danny Battochio made 37 saves on 38 shots and earned the win. His record goes to 28-5-3-2.

The Brahmas went zero for five on the power play. Rapid City went zero for one. The Brahmas were assessed seven minutes on two infractions. The Rush received 15 minutes on six infractions.

The 3rd Star of the game went to Colt King, who scored the game-winning goal and also had an assist. The 2nd Star was awarded to Danny Battochio, who had another fantastic night in net and the 1st Star went to Brendon Hodge, who had a goal and an assist on the night.

The Brahmas boarded the bus for the 20-hour trip home after the game and were back on the ice at NYTEX on Friday in preparation for Saturday's regular season finale against the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs.
