Sundogs forward Chad Nehring couldn't be ringing in the New Year any better.

The reigning Oakley Central Hockey League Player of the Week scored two goals, including the lone score in an overtime shootout, to lift Arizona to a 3-2 victory Tuesday night in front of 1,303 fans at the i-wireless Center in Moline, Ill.

Nehring of Springside, Saskatchewan, Canada, has now tallied nine goals in his last five games and, in the process, overtook the CHL lead in goals scored with 22.

Named Player of the Week on Monday, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Nehring currently has 37 points, a figure that includes 15 assists. He's tied for sixth among the CHL's scoring leaders.

With the win, Arizona has won four of its last five games and improved its record to 15-16-4 overall, as the hometown squad remained in eighth place in the Berry Conference with 34 points. Quad City dipped to 14-15-4 to stay in ninth.

On Tuesday, the Sundogs snagged a 2-0 lead within the first eight minutes of play.

Nehring scored 6:43 into the opening period on assists from Jason Morgan and Derek LeBlanc. Less than two minutes later, forward Kevin Petovello netted just his second goal in 17 games this season with Arizona on helpers from Mike Glaicar and Ron Meyeres.

But Quad City mounted a late comeback, forcing the contest into a short overtime period and, ultimately, a shootout.

Quad City didn't end its scoring drought until the five-minute mark of the second period when Mickey Lang, the Mallards' leading goal scorer, lit the lamp on assists from Mike Hellyer and Matt Duffy.

Later, trailing 2-1 with less than seven minutes left in regulation, Quad City's Patrik Levesque drilled the equalizer on the power play after Sundogs defenseman Chad Langlais was whistled for a hooking penalty at the 11:16 mark of the third.

Following a scoreless OT period, Nehring - the third of the Sundogs' five shooters in the shootout - knocked in the winning goal.

Sundogs goalie Adam Russo denied all five of Quad City's shooters in the shootout, including the last three after Nehring scored.

In 65 minutes, Russo batted away 31-of-33 Quad City shots to earn the victory and improve his record to 8-5-3 with a 2.89 goals against average and a .907 save percentage.

Arizona returns home to Tim's Toyota Center for four games, starting at 7:05 p.m. on Friday when it opens a two-game series against the Denver Cutthroats.
