The Rockford IceHogs defeated the Lake Erie Monsters 2-1 to sweep the weekend series in front of a sold out BMO Harris Bank Center on Sunday.
Following Saturday’s 5-0 shutout by Michael Leighton, goaltender Drew MacIntyre continued the momentum with a stellar performance in net during his IceHogs debut. The veteran goaltender held a shutout bid for 55:22 and finished with 38 saves.
Rookie forward Kyle Baun opened up the scoring with a feed from assists leader Ville Pokka, marking Baun’s first professional goal in the first period.
Mark McNeill doubled the score to increase his own personal point streak of five points in four games when Pokka found McNeill at the backdoor at 8:46 of the second period to make it 2-0.
