On October 1st, the Colorado Stallions made the trip to Colorado Springs to take on the CS Vikings (3pm) and then a second series against the Parker Prowlers (715pm). The Stallions would skate away with a split of the day but have a big impact on the Rocky Mountain Division standings.
The Stallions would first push the newly formed CS Vikings farther into the basement of the division with a convincing 8-1 win and then a demoralizing 6-5 OT win in game 2. Game 1 was no contest from the beginning as the Stallions took advantage of every chance and the Vikings looked like they did not want to be there. Game 2 was a totally different game as the Vikings led throughout but could not finish things off as Colorado scored with :23 sec left in regulation as Isaac King scored on a onetimer from a sharp angle to force extra time. Mikey Harbour would take advantage of a loose puck early in OT to take the game and the series.
A very good Prowlers squad would be the next test for the division leading Stallions. The Prowlers were a bit shorthanded but the players that made the trip were ready to go and pulled out a back and forth battle in game 1 for a 4-3 win. The Stallions found themselves leading this one for most of the game until Kyle Phelps picked up his play and scored 2 goals late to give the Prowlers a sweep and a 3-1 start to the season.
The Prowlers took on the Vikings and rival Thunder last Saturday at Xfinity Arena, Colorado Springs, CO.
