The Allen Americans are currently on a three game losing streak after losing to the Bloomington Blaze, 5-2 on Saturday night. They were without the services of Kip Brennan who was serving a one game suspension and Adam Pineault who has been placed on the IR for 14 days. Also reports that new forward Chris Doyle will be here Monday but will not be able to play Tuesday as he is on the seven-day injured reserve effective on January 25.
Tomorrow night they are facing a Fort Worth Brahmas team that defeated the Rapid City Rush by the score of 3-2 Saturday night behind the team’s second consecutive third-period comeback. The Brahmas are also on a two game winning streak and the last time they met the Americans which was on January 12, they beat them 4-3.
