Bronco Power
Last night, the K-Wings received goals from recently acquired forwards Brian Bicek and Jeff Pierce. Both players were teammates in college at Western Michigan University.

Short Handed
Kalamazoo played last night’s game with 14 skaters and 2 goaltenders, the lowest roster total in Nick Bootland’s five-year coaching career. With injuries and call ups, the K-Wings were missing 158 points out of their lineup.

Sirota Nears 100
Forward Nick Sirota is closing in a personal milestone. Sirota needs three more assists to reach 100 for his career.

Good After Two
When the K-Wings lead after the second period they usually win. On the season, Kalamazoo is 9-1-1-1 when they lead entering the third period.
