Mario Lamoureux- who also had an assist- broke a 2-2 tie with 2:44 left in the third period and the host Quad City Mallards (23-17-6) went on to defeat the Missouri Mavericks (19-22-4) 3-2 Wednesday night. With the win the Mallards opened up a four point lead in the race for second place in the ECHL's Central Division.
Lamoureux completed the Mallards' comeback from a 2-1 deficit by burying Matt Duffy's centering pass after Jeff Lee tied the game from the doorstep at 11:43 of the second period.
The Mavericks had rebounded with back-to-back first period goals after the Mallards' Anthony Collins tipped in the opening goal just under four minutes into the game. Geoff Walker's wrist shot evened the score at one at 14:18 of the first. At 18:21 Lindsay Sparks scored the tiebreaker from the side of the net.
