Stephen Gaul scored in overtime and the Quad-City Storm picked up their second win of the season, topping the Evansville Thunderbolts on Friday.
Gaul beat Evansville goalie Parker Gahagen off a feed from Mathias Ahman on the Storm's first shot of the extra period to give Quad-City a 3-2 victory.
Quad-City (2-3-1) only took only penalty on the night, but it almost proved costly. Josh Victor was sent off for holding 8:36 into the third period with Quad-City clinging to a 2-1 lead. The Thunderbolts' Connor Sanvido made the Storm pay, scoring a little more than a minute into the power play off an assist from Matthew Barnaby to tie the score 2-2.
