Skille's OT hat trick beats Iowa 4-3

Jack Skille’s overtime goal, a hat trick, Sunday only gave the Rockford IceHogs a 4-3 win over the Iowa Stars. The IceHogs drilled Iowa goalie Tobias Stephan from the net, scoring two unanswered goals in the first period and change. He was replaced by Steve Silverthorn. Skille’s overtime hat trick was the first professional hat trick for the club this season and also for Skille.

The Rockford club seemed to find its feet, winning three of the last five games, although it is five in the last ten. A key game for the IceHogs is scheduled tonight when they face the surging Houston Aeros, 7-3 in the last ten games. Although the Aeros trail the third place IceHogs by seven points, the Texans have five games in hand.
