(PR) The Trenton Devils completed their jaunt into the Buckeye State with their best effort of the trip over the Dayton Bombers, a 3-1 win Saturday night.
The Bombers struck first on the power play with a goal from the point by Jim Henkemeyer at 8:01. The Devils tied the game at 15:25 mark as Trevor Kell found Jim Henkel for a clear breakaway at the red line, and the New Jersey native beat Paul Drew on the backhand for his 21st goal of the season.
In the second period, the Devils took the lead on the power play. Matt Cohen scored his first goal since February 22 on a one-timer blast from the far circle for his 12th goal of the season at 6:50.
Unlike their last two games, the Devils controlled the third period and put the game to rest thanks to a dazzling display by Tony Zancanaro. The shifty forward deked out Greg Labenski into the Dayton zone on the near side and fired a shot from an impossible angle in the near corner, putting it through Drew for his 4th of the season at 7:38.
The Devils outshot the Bombers in the third, 17-4, and in the game, 36-17. Henkel tallied a goal and an assist for the Devils, who went 2-for-8 on the power play.
