Once again, the Rhinos simply out-shot, out-worked and out-hit their visitors. After out-gunning the Hawks Saturday night, 75-5, in a 14-1 win, the shot total was almost as outlandish Sunday – 53-6, as Dallas was held without a shot in the first period and had just one in the third.
El Paso was perfect on the power play, going two-for-two with the man advantage, and had three short-handed goals as well. The Rhinos have notched nine “shorties” this season, second behind the league-leading Phoenix Polar
Phoenix has not lost to El Paso, besting the defending Mid-West Division champs in the league showcase last season, then winning the WSHL championship with two straight victories in the best-of-three league finals
played at the Sierra-Providence Events Center.
