NORTH RICHLAND HILLS — The Fort Worth Brahmas’ John Snowden slid a shot through the pads of Quad City goalie Neil Conway 4:47 into overtime to give Fort Worth a 3-2 victory in Game 2 of their opening-round CHL playoff series at NYTEX Sports Centre on Saturday night.For Snowden, who in February scored five goals in a game, the goal was his first point of the postseason.“That’s getting a big monkey off our back, getting the overtime win,” said Snowden, who tied for the team lead with 53 points in the regular season.The teams meet for Game 3 of the best-of-seven series Wednesday with Quad City hosting Games 3, 4 and, if necessary, 5, in Moline, Ill. The Brahmas hold a 2-0 lead in the series.The Brahmas tied the game at 2-2 almost two minutes into the third period when Calin Wild took a feed from Adam Hogg and lifted a shot over Conway’s left shoulder. Brahmas defenseman Ross Rouleau also had an assist, his second of the game.With about eight minutes left, Fort Worth controlled a faceoff and unleashed a flurry of shots from across the offensive zone, including a point-blank one-timer by Sy Nutkevitch in front.Brahmas goalie Kristofer Westblom made a sharp pad save on a low shot midway through the period and preserved the tie by reaching out his left pad for a save as Michael Stinziani cruised through the crease. Conway faced 23 shots in regulation.After combining for three goals in the first period, the teams had little room to work offensively in the second period thanks to aggressive forechecking on both sides.Fort Worth registered 14 shots in the period to Quad City’s five but Conway was able to handle them all. The Brahmas’ best scoring chances came on plays involving Tomas Klempa and Phil Fox. Nearly six minutes into the period, Klempa’s pass from the corner found Fox alone in front of the net, but Conway made the save. Three minutes later, Fox’s shot from the slot hit the crossbar.Quad City took the lead on a shorthanded goal at 5:04 in the first when Jason Dixon intercepted a pass at the Mallards’ blue line, carried down ice and fed Darren McMillen, who spun and fired a backhand past Westblom.With the Brahmas on another power play 2 1/2 minutes later, Klempa snapped a wrist shot from the right sideboards over Conway’s right shoulder. Quad City regained the lead with 45 seconds left when Mickey Lang tipped in a shot from the point by Matt Carlson.Briefly• The game-winning goal in the series-opening victory Thursday by Fort Worth’s Eric Tallent was Tallent’s first as a Brahma. The defenseman from Garland had two assists and 32 penalty minutes in 32 regular-season games.• Quad City coach Terry Ruskowski began his pro playing career with the Houston Aeros in the WHA. He wrapped up his 16-season career with the Minnesota North Stars in the NHL in the 1988-89 season.• After missing Game 1, Fort Worth captain Ross Rouleau, a finalist for the CHL’s Most Outstanding Defenseman Award, returned for Game 2, registering two shots.• Fort Worth forward Nick Schneider’s goal and two assists in Game 1 gave him his first multi-point game with the Brahmas.
