Cyclones run to 16; 5-0 win in Stockton

The Cincinnati Cyclones were featured in earlier posts several seasons ago when the team took advantage of the confusion around a failed introduction of the American Hockey League into Cincinnati. The team is on a run of 16-0 and has already captured the playoff spot in their division. The longest regular season run in the ECHL prior to this run was 14 games, which occurred twice, first with the Knoxville Cherokees from December 28, 1993 to January 29, 1994 and again from November 23 to December 22, 2001 by the Louisiana IceGators.

The longest winning streak in the American Hockey League is owned by the Philadelphia Phantoms. A 17 game streak that lasted from October 22, 2004 to November 27, 2004. The NHL has a similar 17 game streak held by the Pittsburgh Penguins from March 9 to April 10, 1993.

Mathieu Aubin scored a hat trick in the 5-0 victory. Olivier Latendresse scored four points in the contest. The shut out was credited to Maxime Daigneault.

Cincinnati can match the professional records above with a victory over the Fresno Falcons in a game at the Save Mart Center.
