SOUTHAVEN, Miss. -- After nine consecutive losses during Face Off Field Trip games, the Mississippi RiverKings have started a winning streak. Matthew Krahn backstopped the RiverKings to his third win of the season as the 'Kings knocked off the Huntsville Havoc 5-1 on Tuesday Morning.

The RiverKings started the scoring late in the first period as Darrell Stoddard banked the puck off of a Havoc defenseman, past Dan McWhinney to give the RiverKings a 1-0 lead.

The second period saw a trio of goals in a 1:03 span. Patrick Gaul ripped a one-timer past McWhinney on a set-up pass from Todd Hosmer at the 10:09 mark to add to the 'Kings lead. Thirteen seconds later, Nick Walsh hammered home an Ian Finnerty pass to put the home-team up by three. But Stuart Stefan found himself open in the slot and ripped a blast over the glove of Matthew Krahn to cut the RiverKings' lead back to two at the 11:12 mark of the second.

The RiverKings finished the game with a pair of goals as Daniel Barczuk and Matt Whitehead found the back of the net midway through the third period to solidify the win.

Matthew Krahn (3-1-0) picked up the win after stopping 23 of 24 shots against. Dan McWhinney (1-3-1) stopped 36 of 41 shots against in the loss.
