Ice Bears pour it on Thunderbolts in 7-2 win

Anthony McVeigh and Bryce Nielsen each scored two goals and the Knoxville Ice Bears won their sixth straight game with a 7-2 over the Evansville Thunderbolts on Wednesday night.

The Ice Bears are 7-0-1 in their last eight games. Evansville has lost three of its last four.

Knoxville fell behind early when Evansville’s Seth Swenson carried the puck through the right circle and deked toward the hash before his wrist shot split Joe Murdaca’s pads just 35 seconds into the game.

The Ice Bears tied the game when Gehrett Sargis’ shot from the slot was saved by Braeden Ostepchuk and McVeigh put the rebound in the net at 10:10 of the first.
