EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - For the first time in 6 years, playoff hockey returns to Evansville as the Thunderbolts take on the Macon Mayhem on Thursday at 7:15. General admission is free of charge thanks to E is for Everyone. The Thunderbolts have won 3 of their 7 meetings with the Mayhem this season. In the last 4 meeting have gone to overtime. The Bolts have been playing their best hockey of the season down the regular season stretch, going 8-2-2 in their last 12 games. The offense has been led by Nick Lazorko who has 7 goals and 14 points in the 12 game span.
