Wings, Bandits, Mammoth All Pick up One-Goal Road Wins

"The most important thing about this game is how much heart we showed. That's very tough to do, to battle back against an excellent team ... Hopefully we can build upon this down the road."

Last January, the Mammoth rallied back in Calgary from deficits after each of the first three quarters before tying the game up late to force overtime. Colorado won, 13-12. On Saturday night, it was a bit of déjà vu. Trailing after each quarter. A late goal to force overtime. A game-winner for the Mammoth.

"It can be like that at times," said Pollock. "This is one of the hardest barns to win in. Anytime you can get a win here it's great for your team."

The rivals meet again in a rematch this Friday, January 25 at 7:00 pm MST on HealthONE Field at Pepsi Center in Denver.

"They're going to be very unhappy over there," said Mammoth head coach Bob Hamley, referring to the Roughnecks locker room. "We've got a lot of things still to work out. Let's not kid ourselves. We got the 'W' but we've got some things to work out."

Prout finished with one goal and six assists. Colorado forward Jamie Lincoln had two goals, and defenseman John Gallant also scored.

Colorado goaltender Matt Roik, who replaced Chris Levis in the second quarter and played for much of the remainder of the contest, won his first game as a member of the Mammoth.
