Gerald Coleman collected his ECHL-leading third shutout of the season and Jordan Kremyr delivered a hat trick as the Alaska Aces extended their unbeaten streak to 11 games with a 4-0 blanking of the Utah Grizzlies on Friday night.
With the victory, Alaska improves to a league-best 17-4-2 overall, good for 36 points, nine ahead of Utah for the lead in the Mountain Division.
Wes Goldie opened the scoring for the Aces with his ninth of the season 4:55 into the opening period. Kremyr gave Alaska a 2-0 lead on a shorthanded goal later in the period.
Following a scoreless second period, Kremyr made it a three goal cushion in period three and picked up the hat trick on an empty net goal in the final minute of regulation.
Coleman made 25 stops as the Aces limited the Grizzlies to few scoring opportunities all night, and allowed a scant two shots on goal in the second period.
