The San Jose Barracuda (32-11-1-3) stretched their win-streak to a franchise-record 14 games on Saturday with a 4-3 win over the Tucson Roadrunners (22-20-5-0)  that needed overtime.

Timo Meier fired home a slot from the slot less than two minutes into overtime to give the Barracuda another win to add to the astounding streak.

The Barracuda led 2-1 going into the third, but the Roadrunners scored twice to open the period to take the lead. After Kyle Wood tied the game on a power play goal early in the third, Laurent Dauphin scored with less than three minutes left in regulation to give Tucscon the lead and put the Barracuda’s win streak in jeopardy.

But Nikolay Goldobin managed to equalize late to force overtime.

After a scoreless first period, there were three goals in the second period. Mitch Moroz opened the scoring with a wraparound goal for Tucson. But San Jose scored twice to take the lead after two, both goals coming courtesy of Marcus Sorensen. First, he scored a power play goal at 4:10 to tie the game at 1-1. Then, he finished a shorthanded odd-man rush later in the period to give the Barracuda their first lead.

The Barracuda will now return home to face the San Diego Gulls on March 5th as they look to extend their win-streak to 15 games.
