While the Arizona Sundogs are hot, Andrew Engelage is even hotter.

The eighth-year pro out of Ontario posted his second consecutive shutout Friday night at St. Charles and has moved among the elite goalies in the Central Hockey League following the Sundogs' 3-0 shutout of the Chill.

Engelage, in his first season with Arizona after playing the past four years in both the East Coast Hockey League and the American Hockey League, stopped all 30 shots sent his way Friday night before 3,102 fans at The Family Arena, just northwest of St. Louis.

The win was Engelage's third straight overall, as he has posted 59 saves and zero goals allowed in his last two outings. Now 11-8-1 on the season, the 25-year-old has three shutouts this season, which is tied for the league lead (Grant Rollheiser, Brampton) and has a 2.64 goals-against-average, which is the CHL's fourth lowest.

The Sundogs have won three straight games and four of five, including four consecutive wins on the road. And Engelage got plenty of help from his offense Friday night.

Arizona scored goals in each period, started off by a power play goal from Paul McIlveen, who cashed in an assist from Brandon Coccimiglio in the final one-and-a-half minutes of the first period.

The power-play attack continues to shine for the Sundogs, who have now registered at least one goal with the man advantage in six straight games. They went 1-for-3 Friday night, while killing both of St. Charles' opportunities.

Arizona's Ian Schultz scored in the second period off helpers from Bryan Cameron and Alex Velischek. Coccimiglio capped the scoring with an unassisted empty-netter in the last minute of regulation.

Coccimiglio now has 14 points (8 goals, 6 assists) in his eight games since joining the Sundogs late last month, and is currently riding a seven-game point streak.

Despite their recent run, which includes six wins in nine games overall, the Sundogs (13-18-1, 27 points) remain in ninth place in the 10-team league.

Their current four-game road trip concludes Saturday night (6:05 p.m.) at Quad City. The Mallards sit in fifth place after falling to Wichita 3-2 in a shootout Friday night.

After the Quad City game, Arizona returns to Prescott Valley for a brief two-game stand against the fourth-place Allen Americans Jan. 17 and 18 before hitting the road again for three straight after that.
