Lots of goals, lots of fighting. It was hockey night on Wednesday for sure, just not very much for the Arizona Sundogs.

The Sundogs lost a second straight game on their current four-game road trip by succumbing 6-0 to the expansion Denver Cutthroats Wednesday night at the Denver Coliseum. The game was marred by a flurry of third-period fighting penalties, which should make for an interesting rematch between the two clubs Friday, again in Denver.

The teams had just met for three straight in Prescott Valley last week, where the Sundogs won all three. In their last meeting, Nov. 10, the Sundogs scored six goals in a 6-4 win.

It was just the opposite on Wednesday night.

The Cutthroats were up 3-0 after one period, and then 5-0 after two. The Sundogs suffered their worst loss of the season, allowing a season-high six goals. It's also the first time Arizona has been shut out since a 1-0 overtime loss to Missouri on Oct. 27.

After the flurry of Denver goals came a firestorm of fisticuffs.

A combined 42 penalty minutes were served between the two teams in the third period alone. The Sundogs' Kyle Hood threw the first hit on the Cutthroats' A.J. Gale, which led to a breakout between Keith Wynn and J.P. Chabot.

Earlier, the Sundogs had a first-period goal by Jake Hauswirth waived off after teammate Mickael Bedard was called for high sticking.

Arizona goalie Adam Russo had a rough night in the net. Denver out-shot the Sundogs 30-22 and cashed in 1-of-3 power play chances.

Gale finished with two goals and an assist in the Cutthroats' winning effort. Brad Smyth also scored two goals and registered an assist for the home team.

The loss marked the first time in the young season that the Sundogs have lost back-to-back contests since the first two games of the year.

After a day off Thursday, Arizona picks up its road trip Friday night again with Denver before traveling to face the Wichita Thunder on Saturday night.
