The San Jose Barracuda notched a decisive 5-2 win over the Rockford IceHogs on Friday night and Roy Sommer moved closer to history by recording his 635rd career win.
While Rockford scored the first goal, but San Jose scored the next two with goals from Petter Emanuelsson and Bryan Lerg. The IceHogs responded on a one-timer by Mark McNeill to even the score, but Trevor Parkes answered for the Barracuda to give San Jose the lead again.
Up a goal in the third period, the Barracuda put the game away with two scores in the final frame.
The Barracuda have recorded points in their last eight games. Their road trip continues tomorrow in Des Moines against the Wild.
