I was a bit under the weather today, so I stayed home…coincidentally, the inclement weather may keep me home tomorrow as well, it seems.
Doesn’t seem the Trenton Devils need me there, though. A dramatic, come from behind victory against Toledo in overtime tonight, and they got another huge two points. Trevor Kell scored 2:21 into overtime, his second goal of the game, to send the fans home happy.
Trenton hosts Kalamazoo tomorrow night in the final game of their brief three-game homestand.
The T-Devils came into the game three points back of eighth place Reading, two points behind Gwinnett and a point behind Wheeling. Johnstown inexplicably crushed Reading, 7-2, and the Gladiators and Nailers are both idle. So Trenton leapfrogs the Nailers and matches the Gladiators with 63 points, although Gwinnett has the tiebreaker with one more win. To make a long story short, the Devils are a point out of eighth, and currently in tenth place in the conference.
