The Mallards" Nicholas Rioux (R) heads up ice Friday night in Denver
Kieran Millan stopped all 30 shots he faced and Garett Bembridge scored twice and added an assist as the host Denver Cutthroats blanked the Quad City Mallards 3-0 Friday night.
The Cutthroats were on the power play when Bembridge broke a scoreless deadlock with a one-timer from the left wing circle at 1:59 of the second period.
Millan was at his busiest in the third period, making 12 saves to set the stage for his teammates to put the Mallards away with a pair of goals. Bembridge scored his and the Cutthroats' second from the slot at 9:12 of the third and Michael Schumacher's point-blank man advantage goal capped off the win for Denver with 2:40 left in the contest.
