Ice drop home finale to Gamblers, 4-2
The Indiana Ice dropped their regular season home finale Friday night, 4-2 to the Green Bay Gamblers.
The Eastern Conference champion Ice played catch-up for much of the night, falling behind 1-0 at the 6:48 mark of the first period. Indiana tied the game a short time later on Scott Conway's power-play goal, his 32nd tally of the year and fifth in the past three nights.
After falling behind 3-1 in the second period, Alex Talcott tipped in a pass from Jason Salvaggio on the power play. But Green Bay closed out the win with another power play goal in the third period.
The 6,404 fans in attendance at Bankers Life Fieldhouse marked the third-largest crowd in the league this year. The Ice also boast the biggest crowd, the 12,100 who attended "Pack the House for Charity" night in early March.
Indiana closes out the regular season on the road in Chicago Saturday night. They begin the Clark Cup playoffs next Saturday night, April 12, at Pan Am Pavilion against an opponent that has yet to be determined.
