Omaha Lancers
Starved for offensive success through the first two periods, Sioux City sated its appetite with three late goals Saturday night to advance in the United States Hockey League playoffs.

On a night where their season could have gone dark, the Omaha Lancers constellation shined brighter than ever.
Because their next loss will be their last, the Omaha Lancers need to put together a three-game winning streak to extend their season.
