All season long, the Trenton Devils have provided what has never amounted to more than false hope to their fans. Is this just more of the same, or did this team save their best run for last?
Tony Zancanaro scored the game-winner 2:40 into overtime, propelling Trenton to a 3-2 win in Elmira in a game they never led. Jeff Prough and Trevor Kell also scored for the Devils, and Dave Caruso made 22 saves in the victory.
With Toledo’s stunning 7-4 loss to Johnstown, the T-Devils have pulled to within three points of the eighth place Walleye. Four games remain for Trenton, including three straight home games against the Jackals. Unquestionably, they must win all three. Their season ends…well, their regular season ends…on April 3rd in Reading.
The T-Devils host Elmira at 7 PM tomorrow and 4 PM on Sunday. The final home game of the season is next Friday at 7 PM against, you guessed it, Elmira.
