Joe Caveney scored the game-winner with just 1:27 left in overtime on Saturday as the Pensacola Ice Flyers defeated the Peoria Rivermen, 3-2, for the third straight night at Carver Arena. Despite the loss, Rivermen goaltender Eric Levine made a career-high 40 saves, while Peoria scored both goals on the power play. Peoria falls to 3-6-3 on the season, but earns its ninth point of the year. In addition, Levine is now 1-3-2, while Ice Flyers’ netminder John Griggs stopped 29 of 31 shots for his second win. Parker Stanfield (1g, 1a), Tyler Fernandez (1g, 1a) and Cole Ruwe (2a) each notched a multi-point night for the Rivermen. Peoria begins a home-and-home series next weekend against the Bloomington Thunder with a 7:15 p.m. puck drop on Friday at Carver Arena.
