RESULTS

>> Two clutch goals from new Kalamazoo forward Dylan Sadowy gave the Wings a dramatic 4-3 overtime win Saturday in the team’s 46th Home Opener against the Cincinnati Cyclones at Wings Event Center. Brennan Sanford gave the home team the lead 4:09 into the game, but the Cyclones had an answer. Yannick Veilleux then put the K-Wings in front a second time in the middle period, but again Cincinnati responded. A Cyclones 2-on-1 with 4:28 left in regulation provided a go-ahead goal entering the final minutes, but Sadowy scored the equalizer on a power play with 1:27 remaining and the K-Wings net empty. Sadowy capped off the comeback six seconds into overtime on another power play to seal Kalamazoo’s thrilling 4-3 win.
