The Las Vegas Wranglers racked their fifth straight win Monday night, beating the visiting Florida Everblades, 2-1, in the opener of the ECHL's Kelly Cup Finals.
Some usual suspects shined: Joe Fallon furnished 32 saves and Eric Lampe scored one goal and set up the other to give the Wranglers the win at Orleans Arena, where Game 2 is tonight.
Fallon in the playoffs is 7-1 with a 1.22 goals-against average and .955 save percentage. Lampe owns 7-11--18 totals in 14 playoff games.
The Wranglers, you no doubt recall, eliminated the Alaska Aces in the Western Conference Finals, winning the last four games to take that series in five games.
