400 - Head Coach Bruce Ramsay reached another milestone on Saturday night, collecting his 400th win as a pro head coach. He eclipsed 800 games as a pro head coach on New Year's Eve.

GILLY GILLY - Mitch Gillam notched back-to-back shutouts on Friday and Saturday. It was the first time since December 10-11, 1998, that the Thunder had back-to-back shutouts in a season. It was also Gillam's first and second shutout of the year, first shutout for a Thunder netminder and his 7th and 8th career shutouts.

DONUTS - Wichita hasn't allowed a goal in regulation in three-straight games, which is the first time that has been done in franchise history. Tulsa's overtime goal ended a shutout streak at 185:03.

SAL - Jason Salvaggio had four goals in three games this past week. He had points in four-straight before Sunday's 1-0 loss at Tulsa. He needs six goals to equal his rookie total from a year ago when he recorded 16 goals.

OT WINNER - Beau Starrett netted his first game-winner and first overtime game-winning goal of his career last Tuesday against Allen. He also recorded a goal and an assist on Saturday night against Kansas City. Starrett has 24 points (13g, 11a) in his rookie season. He is tied for 12th in rookie scoring.

POWER AND LIGHT - The Thunder power play has been solid at home so far this season. Wichita has scored 14 of its 19 power play goals at INTRUST Bank Arena. On the other side of the coin, the Thunder penalty kill has been better on the road than at home. The road penalty kill is ranked 10th in the league, killing off 63 of 76 chances, good for 82.9%.
