11/18/2009 10:03 PM -

Charlotte, NC –The South Carolina Stingrays (9-3-1-3) saw their nine-game unbeaten streak come to an end in a 7-0 loss to the Charlotte Checkers (7-3-1-1) in front of 3,969 at Time Warner Cable Arena Wednesday night. Checkers forward Tyler Doig picked up five points (1g, 4a) and Miika Wiikman recorded his first shutout knocking away 36 Stingrays shots. The Stingrays return home Friday night to take on the Gwinnett Gladiators at 7:05 p.m. at North Charleston Coliseum.


The Checkers first lit the lamp at 9:10 of the opening period as Michel Leveille sent a wrist shot past Stingrays goaltender Todd Ford. Checkers forward Doig and defenseman Steve Ward registered assists. Checkers winger Kenny Roche continued the scoring with a power-play goal at 16:33 from Leveille and Doig. Less than 30 seconds later, Checkers forward Andrew Carroll tallied his fifth of the season to give the Checkers a 3-0 lead. Jean-Philipp Chabot and Mike Taylor recorded assists.


Charlotte started the second period scoring just 19 seconds in as Roche found the twine for his second of the game and fourth of the season. Roche was unassisted on the play. The Stingrays ran into penalty trouble in the second period and the Checkers capitalized with two power-play goals for a commanding 6-0 lead at the end of 40 minutes. Doig tallied the first power-play maker at 7:55 from Julien Brouillette and Leveille. Checker forward Devin DiDiomete continued the special teams at 9:14 for his first of the year from Daniel Tkaczuk. Charlotte finished the game 3-for-7 on the man advantage. The Stingrays fell 0-for-4 on the power play.



The Checkers added one final goal in the third period at 6:04 as Tkaczuk beat a sprawling Ford for his first of the year from Doig. Ford finished the game knocking away 23 of 30 Checkers shots while Wiikman earns his first shutout of the season blocking all 36 Stingrays opportunities.
