That was the first-ever Suns shutout over the Moose and led to an 8-0 and 4-1 home sweep, with Thomson in the net both nights. The last Suns shutout before tonight's gem was posted by former Idaho Steelheads goalie Colin Zulianello (39 saves) with a 4-0 decision over the McCall Mountaineers Dec. 31, 2005......Thomson made a brilliant save on Utah's Jeremy Crossley with time ticking away in the second period to preserve the shutout.....Tonight's game ended at 9:06 p.m., about the shortest Suns game ever.....SV forward lines were Ryan Enrico-Jamie Ellison-Vilnis Nikolaisons, Blake Jenson-Spencer Brendel-Cody Proctor, John Stevens-Billy Tryder-John Miller....Brendel tallied his first-ever Suns goal standing at the doorstep and redirecting a nice cross-ice pass from the corner by Blake Jenson early in the third period.

GOALIES—Cache Valley, Dane Jorgenson (55 saves); SV, Bobby Farrelly (21 saves, 1-0-0 record).

OFFICIALS—Bobby Noyes and John Stevens.

NOTES—Suns director of officials and all-time leading goal scorer Bobby Noyes suffered a right knee injury after dropping the puck for a third-period faceoff. Noyes was assisted off the ice and the game continued with only one official, John Stevens. The remainder of the game using only one official was played in running time instead of stop time. After the game, Steve McCoy and Rod Watson carried Noyes upstairs to the official's locker room, where Noyes changed and used some crutches to leave the rink. Stevens drove him home. Noyes said his knee was swollen Sunday and the day wasn't made much better because both of his teams, the Giants and Chargers, lost their NFL playoff games.....Tonight, the Suns amassed 12 goals and 22 assists. For the weekend the home team out-scored Cache Valley 18-4 and out-pointed Utah 52-8. The shots differential was equally lopsided, 132 for the Suns and 42 for Cache Valley.....Suns goalie Bobby Farrelly recorded his first Suns win tonight and also his first Suns point, an assist. Farrelly played in a game-and-a-half during the 2003-04 Suns season, allowing 12 goals and posting a 0-1-0 record. Since that time, he has mainly been in the net for the visiting East Coast Gutter Snipes during the Suns season finale.
