Devils Beat Jackals, 5-1

(PR) The Trenton Devils were led by their special teams en route to a 5-1 win over the Elmira Jackals Friday night. The win was Trenton’s fifth in a row over the Jackals.

The Devils struck first by capitalizing on a two-man advantage. Matt Cohen ripped a slap shot from the blue line past Michael Teslak to put the Devils on the board at 16:29 of the first.

Hard work by Jim Henkel resulted in the Devils’ second goal of the night. Henkel attempted a pass across the slot that would be blocked by Wes Cunningham, but Henkel dug out the loose puck and caught Michael Teslak leaning out of his crease, giving the Devils a 2-0 lead at 14:06 of the second.

The Jackals controlled the first half of the third period, which was rewarded with a strange goal by newcomer Shawn Snider at 6:14 to put the Jackals back in the game.

After the Devils killed off a penalty midway through the third, Matt Radoslovich sprung Dan Eves for a breakaway. Eves deked out Teslak before burying a backhand to give the Devils a 3-1 lead at 11:11.

Radoslovich and Eves teamed up again 1:32 later, with Radoslovich putting home the pass from Eves for his eighth goal of the season.

Trevor Kell put the finishing touches on the win with a shorthanded empty-netter at 14:57, his 13th goal of the campaign.

Gerald Coleman made 24 saves for his 15th win of the season, while Radoslovich and Eves had had a goal and an assist. Trenton’s power play went 2-for-4 and killed all five of Elmira’s man advantages.
