LAFAYETTE, La. - Garrett Sheehan stopped all 33 shots he faced in regulation and overtime, but the Mississippi RiverKings (13-4-2) lost 1-0 in a shootout to the Louisiana IceGators (7-9-2) in Lafayette on Saturday night.

The RiverKings peppered IceGator netminder Brad Barone for 15 shots in the opening frame, but none found the back of the net. They outshot Louisiana 41-33 in the contest and were held scoreless on five power play opportunities.
