Sigh.

(PR) An offensive barrage by the Wheeling Nailers snapped the Trenton Devils’ four-game win streak as Trenton succumbed to a 6-2 defeat Sunday afternoon.

Aaron Clarke put the Nailers on the board at 9:15 of the first on a one-timer pass from Rob Sirianni. The Devils tied the game just over two minutes later as Jim Henkel fired a shot from the slot to get a goal in his third straight game.

The Nailers received two more goals in the first by Jordan Morrison and Erik Johnson to take a 3-1 lead into the first period.

In the second period, the Nailers would continue their mastery of the Devils by outshooting Trenton 10-6. Rob Sirianni took advantage of a Brad Snetsinger turnover in the slot and rifled in his 17th goal of the season at 10:34.

Reid Cashman extended the Wheeling lead to four when his shot from the right blue line squeaked by Charlie Effinger at 14:15.

Elgin Reid added a shorthanded goal 1:32 into the third off of a rebound from Erik Johnson. The Devils rounded out the scoring with Trevor Kell’s power play goal off of a nifty wraparound with 2:37 left to play.

David Brown had 37 saves for the Nailers, turning aside 21 of those in the third period. The Devils penalty-killing unit killed off all five Nailers power plays, extending their streak to 32 penalties killed. Kell and Eric Castonguay each had two points for Trenton.

The Devils return to Sovereign Bank Arena Sunday afternoon for a 4:00 p.m. game against the Cincinnati Cyclones. The game is the second of 4 for $48 Sundays, as fans can purchase four tickets, four hot dogs and four small sodas for $48 in advance. Tickets for the promotion are not available the day of the game.
