Manitoba starts four-game road trip with 4-1 in over Peoria

PEORIA, Ill. - Drew MacIntyre made 24 saves, Manitoba scored three goals in the first two periods and the Moose held on for a 4-1 win over the Rivermen in Peoria Tuesday night in the AHL.

MacIntyre earned his 17th win of the season.

Daniel Rahimi opened the scoring Manitoba (24-19-2-2), resulting in the rookie defenceman's first goal of the season.

Although special teams struggled to score, Brad Moran made it happen during 5-on-5 play. Moran snapped up his own rebound and extended Manitoba's lead to two with a goal at 5:49 of the second.

Alexandre Bolduc beat Peoria's Marek Schwarz to score Manitoba's third unanswered goal at 13:45.

Just over a minute into a 5-on-4, Julian Talbot flipped the puck over MacIntyre's shoulder to get the Rivermen on the scoreboard at 6:35 of the third.

Centred on the blue-line, defenceman Jimmy Sharrow wired the puck off a few bodies and behind Schwarz to put the Moose up 4-1 with seven minutes left on the clock.

Schwarz made 19 saves for the Rivermen (28-15-4-4).
