Leo Thomas did most of the damage for the RiverKings, scoring a hat trick with all three Mississippi goals in regulation time. It was his linemate, Ryan Marcuz, though who scored the game winner just 1:10 into overtime. Marcuz assisted on two of Thomas goals.
Trailing 2-0, the Mayhem got on the board when Joshua Ranalli scored at 4:18 of the second period. Thomas then completed his hat trick, giving the RiverKings a two-goal cushion. Daniel Gentzler cut the lead to 3-2 with just under two minutes left in the second period.
Gentzler set up Lucas LaBelle to tie the game at 14:07 of the third period. Gentzler now has six points (two goals and four assists) in the Mayhem’s five games.
