The Wichita Thunder hockey team defeated the Rapid City Rush 4-3 Wednesday night at Intrust Bank Arena downtown. With the win, Wichita now has the most points among any team in the ECHL.

Forward Jack Combs scored the game-tying goal in the second period, then notched the game-winning goal with only 13 seconds remaining in the game. 

With the victory, Wichita leap-frogged over the Rush and the Allen Americans into first place atop the Mountain Division standings. The Thunder has won seven of its last nine games.
