RiverKings Can’t Control the Havoc, Fall 4-0

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - One night after shutting out the Knoxville Ice Bears 3-0, it was the RiverKings on the wrong side of the shutout falling to the Havoc, 4-0 on the road.  In a mostly scoreless first period, Huntsville would take the lead with only 7 seconds left thanks to a fluke play. While trying to set up a final rush for the period, Cody Walsh lost an edge allowing Huntsville’s Christian Powers to take it and bury the wrap around past Tyler Green.  Despite a strong... Read More
