Kalamazoo, MI – 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.
Earning his second-goal of the game, Haczyk (10th) pulled the Titans even late in the period with Trenton’s third power-play goal out of five attempts.
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.
