K-Wings earn come-from-behind victory over Jackals

Kalamazoo defeats Elmira 3-2 in a shootout

Kalamazoo, MI – Upping their home winning streak to a season-high four games and their overall unbeaten streak to three games (2-0-0-1), the Kalamazoo Wings erased a third period deficit to come-from-behind and defeat the Elmira Jackals 3-2 in a shootout on Wednesday night.

Attacking early, Sam Ftorek (10th) gave the K-Wings the lead 3:37 into the game with a slap shot from the point.

Pulling even 1:20 later, Dane Walters (6th), the former Western Michigan University product, tied the game at one with a wrist shot from the right circle.

Elmira started the second period off fast. Scoring a goal 2:01 into the stanza, former K-Wing, Harry Young (2nd) utilized a screen in front of netminder Jordan Binnington to give the Jackals a one goal advantage and the only goal of the period.

The Jackals had plenty of scoring chances in the period. Though they didn’t score on the power-play, Elmira had six man-advantage opportunities in the period. Elmira finished the game 0-for-7 on the power-play.

Not looking to squander any chances in the final period, Kalamazoo capitalized on their lone power-play chance of the stanza.

Earning his eighth power-play goal of the season and 11th overall, Ftorek struck for his second goal of the night. Ftorek, who leads all ECHL defensemen in power-play goals, is also tied for the league-lead on man-advantage tallies. The K-Wings finished the night 1-for-4 on the power-play.

Kalamazoo out-dueled Elmira 3-2 in the shootout, receiving goals from Justin Taylor, David Pacan and Chris Lawrence, who celebrated his 26th birthday with the eventual game-winner.
