Scoring a goal in Cincinnati’s 4-1 win at Dayton on Saturday, Joe Cardarelli extended his scoring streak to 12 games, the second-longest active scoring streak in the East Coast Hockey League. During the streak, Cardarelli has tallied 15 goals, including seven power-play goals, and has scored 24 points. He has five multiple-goal games and eight multiple-point games.
