Stampede shutout Salt Lake City Moose - Junior Hockey News

The Cheyenne Stampede opened their three game home series with a 2-0 win against the Salt Lake City Moose on Jan. 25. The game was not only the first game of the weekend for the Stampede though, it was also the first hockey game Wyoming Governor Matt Mead had ever attended. The 32nd Governor of Wyoming arrived to the game early, just after the warm up and met all of the players, and gave a bit of a pre-game speech. He told the team that he wanted them to play well, before going player to player and shaking all of their hands. He said that seeing them get suited up brought back memories of his own high school and college football days. "I love the competitive atmosphere" he said. The Governor also did the ceremonial puck drop to start the game.

The game's first period passed scoreless, as the game quickly turned into a dual between goaltenders. Sam Mallory for the Stampede stood tall throughout the game, shutting out the Moose, stopping all 35 shots. The Stampede got on the board just 42 seconds into the second period, when Russell Armbruster scored the go ahead goal. Ryan Carroll had the assist on the play, and would finish the game with two points, as he scored the empty netter at the end of the game to give the Stampede the 2-0 lead.

Stampede Coach Marty Quarters said after the game that "our guys should be thankful Sam was in net" praising the strong goaltending performance from the Cheyenne native. He went on to say that the team was outworked by Salt Lake though, and that they will need a better effort going forward.  He also said that, "This team has found a way to respond," referring to the team's ability to adjust to difficult situations throughout the season.

The Stampede will take on the Salt Lake City Moose again on Saturday Jan. 26 at 7:30 p.m.
