KALAMAZOO, Mich – Powered by a 3-for-6 performance with the man-advantage, the Trenton Titans (20-23-4-3) disrupted the Kalamazoo Wings (23-22-4-1) Valentine’s Day plans by defeating the K-Wings 4-3 Thursday night during the 13th Annual Pink Ice Game, presented by WKFR, SeaLandAir Travel & Apple Vacations.
In his first game with the Titans, Marvin Degon notched his first goal with a power-play strike 3:21 into the contest with a rocket from the left-circle.
Using their power-play prowess in the second period, Trenton extended their lead 2:27 into the stanza with a tally from former K-Wing Bryan Haczyk (9th).
Ironically, it was the K-Wings power-play unit that recorded their first goal of the evening, a redirect marker from Brett Lysak (15th).
The goal from Lysak sparked the K-Wings, as Kyle Page responded 41 seconds later with his first goal of the season that was setup by a pass from Joe Charlebois.
Capping off three-goal stretch in a span of 3:36, Wesley Myron recorded his second assist of the game on a Dustin Cloutier tally. Cutting in front of Scott Wedgewood, Cloutier tipped a Myron slap shot past the netminder for his seventh goal this season.
Trenton went ahead for good in the third period with Blake Kessel’s fifth goal of the season. Working the puck into the high-slot, Kessel delivered the fatal blow with a slap shot 12:05 into the period.
The K-Wings will remain at home on Friday, February 15th for a 7:30 p.m. face-off versus the Toledo Walleye during the 2nd Annual Susan G. Komen Game, presented by Consumers Energy. The K-Wings will be wearing special jerseys for both home games this week. A silent auction will start during the pink ice game and conclude on Friday, February 15th during the K-Wings-Walleye contest.
