K-Wings K-Rush T-Devils, 5-0

(K-Wings PR) Kalamazoo, MI- With eight players called up in the American Hockey League and two others on the injured reserve, the Kalamazoo Wings knew they needed players to step against the Trenton Devils. Brian McGuirk and Ryan Nie answered the call for the K-Wings, as McGuirk recorded three points (2 goals, 1 assist) and Nie turned aside 36 saves en route to a 5-0 victory.

Anchored by an aggressive power-play, the K-Wings went 2 for 3 in the opening period with a man-advantage.

McGuirk (1st) gave the K-Wings the lead deflecting a Tom Morrow slap shot 1:50 into the game. Later in the first, Darryl Lloyd found Ben Simon (1st) wide-open on a cross rink pass to extend the lead to 2-0.

Pulling away in the second period, Kalamazoo added three more goals to their ledger. Sal Peralta (2nd) redirected a Jeff Mason blast 14:44 into the middle frame pushing the K-Wings advantage to three goals.

McGuirk (2nd) and Ryan McGinnis (2nd) each chipped in power-play goals to close out the scoring for Kalamazoo.

Competing against the second-best penalty-kill in the ECHL, the K-Wings scorched the Devils going 4-for-6 on the power-play.

The victory extends the K-Wings winning streak to five games and a league-best record of 11-1-1-0.

Kalamazoo also continued their dominance over Trenton, as the K-Wings are now 3-0-0-0 against the Devils. Outscoring the Devils 14-2 in three match-ups, the K-Wings have kept Trenton off the scoreboard in 133:40 consecutive minutes, which dates back to third period of the K-Wings 6-2 victory on October 17th.

    Trenton actually has their full story up, highlighting the Ryan Nye(sic) shutout. I’d give the link but I’m on my phone & copy/paste is beyond it.

    The T-Devils did post a game story, true.

    But they’ve stopped posting all the photos for the home games. Why?

  3. titansman Says:

    they have photos showing in the gallery through the SC 11/11. They dont have the Reading game showing from the 14th. I think thats the only photos not showing.

    Anybody have gas money for Rado?

  5. Shtikl Says:

    Why, are Rado and Henkel willing to show up for practice Monday? I could pawn my Lowell Devils season tickets — oops, sorry, nobody wants them…

    Really glad to see Corrente play forward last night, you really have to wonder what the hell is going on some times. He works hard in practice I guess. I’m sure PLL is thrilled to yet be scratched again this time for a defensemen to play up front. No need to bring Henkel in, he’s choosen to “retire” is the answer when the question was asked of the coaches.
