The BC Icemen returned home from a nine day, five game road-trip tied for first and then went out onto their home ice for the first time in two weeks and crushed division-rival Adirondack 6-3. 

To start off their long road trip, the Icemen defeated the Muskego Fury 6-2. James Desmarais and Mark Dutiaume netted two goals and rookie Glendon Cominetti got his first professional point via an assist to the led the Icemen to the win. 

The following night the Fort Wayne Komets, who clinched a quarterfinal playoff round victory against the Icemen last season, handed BC a 4-2 loss. Captain Derek Wood and Chris Grenville collected the Icemen's goals on the night. 

To close out a three-game weekend, the Icemen handed a strong Klamazoo team a 4-3 defeat. Two goals by Grenville, including the game winner, led the way for BC. Goaltender Bryan Schoen, who shares the netminder position with AHL's Springfield Falcon property Pierre-Luc Therrien got the win stopping 27 of 30 shots. The loss was the former IHL team, the K-Wings, first in seven games. 

Following the win, the Icemen travelled to Rockford and were handed a 6-2 loss. The IceHogs scored four power play goals within three and a half minutes during the second period after Wood netted his fourth of the year 35 seconds into the period. 

Two nights later BC fell to quick goals once again when the Flint Generals knocked in three goals in 1:55 in the first period on the way to a 4-3 win. Defenseman Pat Stachniak scored his first professional goal during the game while Rob Voltera and Grenville scored the other goals. 

Less than 24 hours later and after a long bus ride, the Icemen ended up in Binghamton and defeated Adriondack. Forward Justin Plamondon got his first goal of the season and the Icemen scored three straight power play goals in the 6-3 win. The goalie Schoen got his first assist of the year on Desmarais fifth goal. 

With the win the Icemen, with a 7-6-0 record, are tied with Adirondack and Mohawk Valley for first in the Northeast. Grenville has been a force for BC in their surge for first with two goals and nine assists in a six-game scoring streak. The right winger leads the Icemen with 16 points. Center Derek Knorr is the teams leader in assists with 10 and with a plus/minus of plus six. Schoen has been a wall in net collecting a 6-2-0-1 record with a 2.31 goals against average and a 0.922 save percentage. 

This Friday night, November 17th at 7 p.m., the Icemen take on the New Haven Knights. New Haven is second in the Southeast division with a 6-5-2 record and have lost their past three games.
