K-Wings News Release


Joel Martin Makes 45 Saves in 2-1 Shootout Win for Kalamazoo
February 23, 2013 - Mike Modugno
Director of Public Relations and Broadcaster

Elmira, NY – In the ECHL Galaxy, no star has shined brighter this season than that of goaltender Joel Martin and on Saturday night led by 45 saves, Martin propelled the Kalamazoo Wings (27-23-4-1) to a 2-1 shootout victory over the Elmira Jackals (29-20-3-2) at the First Arena.

A physical opening period that had the feel of playoff hockey featured no scoring. The playoff atmosphere continued into the second period; however, the score wouldn’t remain the same. 

With a mass of players scrambling for a rebound, the puck rolled to the tape of Tyler Shelast, who lifted in his sixth goal of the season 5:35 into the second period to give the K-Wings the 1-0 lead. Assisting the goal for Kalamazoo were Mitch Versteeg and Brett Lysak.  

Battling back with just 4:13 remaining in regulation, Jordan Southhorn (8th) tied the game at 1-1 scoring off of a face-off with a blue line slap shot to force overtime.

Elmira, who outshot Kalamazoo 5-0 in the extra session, earned four of those shots on an overtime power-play, but couldn’t get the game-winner past Martin.

Shooting first, Nick Sirota earned the lone goal in the shootout for the K-Wings, while Martin denied all five Jackal shooters to secure his 25th victory of the season.

Martin (2-1-0-0) has made 129 saves in three games against Elmira this season.
