Mavericks Home Opener Spoiled by Thunder (not Earthquake)

Via KC Star

Although I was unable to make it out to IEC tonight for the Mavericks home opener, I have heard reports that it was sold out and ROCKIN'!

That's the good news.  The bad news is the Mavs fell to the Wichita Thunder in a shootout for their first loss on the season.  This snaps a six game win streak to begin the year.  There are some nice video highlights if you hop on over to the Mavs site.

The Mavericks have yet to lose a game in regulation, and are the best team in the CHL at 6-0-1.  Thinel remains the points leader in the CHL with four goals and nine assists through seven games this season.  Pretty dang impressive.

The team returns home again on November 11th against the Tulsa Oilers.

Also, start reading the Mavericks Insider, if you are not reading it yet.  It is featured in the News section of the Mavericks main site.  It shows game previews, player interviews, and other tidbits that every Mavs fan will ever want to know.  It gets more in-depth than a hockey blogger can ever hope to go, so, check it out.
