MOUNTLAKE TERRACE, Wash. — The Tahoe Icemen couldn’t break through in a road series Feb. 26-28, and couldn’t halt its lengthy losing streak. The Icemen were swept by Seattle in a three-game set at Olympic View Arena, losses that extended their streak to 21.

In the series opener Friday, Feb. 26, Tahoe fell to the Totems 6-1. The Icemen’s lone goal came from Artsiom Surmach in the second period of an assist from Colton Langowski — Seattle scored three both the first and third periods en route to victory.

On Saturday, Feb. 27, the Icemen suffered a lopsided 13-2 defeat. Zach Houck opened the scoring for Tahoe in the first period assisted by Surmach and Edgar Gonzalez — a tally sandwiched between five Seattle goals.

Surmach found the back of the net with 14:30 left in the second period off assists from Langowski and Cameron Cerda. That goal made the score 7-2, and the Totems scored six unanswered to send Tahoe to a double-digit defeat.

The Icemen concluded the series Sunday, Feb. 28, with a 7-3 loss. Tahoe scored once in each period, but couldn’t avoid being swept by Seattle.

In Sunday’s loss, Langowski opened the scoring for Tahoe late in the first period assisted by Surmach and Gonzalez. Cerda scored his first goal of the season in the second period, while Surmach netted his team-leading 17th for the Icemen with a third-period power play score assisted by Langowski and Gonzalez.

Tahoe (2-47) concludes its campaign on the road this weekend March 4-6. The Icemen’s three-game series at Whitefish starts Friday, March 4.
