 In the third Amarillo came out swinging as Blake Roubos struck 62sec into the final period to put the Bulls up 2-1.

 Dan McNamara responded 2:53 later off a great Clint Carlisle pass and the Bulls pulled out to a 3-1 lead.

 Omar Mullan tacked on the third goal of the period assisted by Connor Frey and Carter Penzien at 11:27 and led 4-1.

 To finish the scoring, Brady Ferguson added an empty netter with just 42sec left in regulation and Amarillo ended the two game losing streak with a 5-1 win.

 Ben Myers denied 35 shots in the loss.

 The IceRays return home next weekend against Wichita Falls.
