RESULTS

Tuesday, Dec. 31 – Indy 6, Kalamazoo 2  (Wings Event Center – Kalamazoo, MI) | Box Score

>> The Kalamazoo Wings finished off the 2019 portion of the schedule with a New Year’s Eve showdown against the Indy Fuel. An early goal from Zach Diamantoni gave the K-Wings a 1-0 lead after one, but the Fuel answered with three goals in the second period and added a fourth 18 seconds into the third period. Garret Ross scored a power play goal to close the gap to 4-2, but Indy added two more late in the frame to snap Kalamazoo’s five-game winning streak.

Friday, Jan. 3 – Toledo 6, Kalamazoo 2  (Huntington Center – Toledo, OH) | Box Score

>> Two points from Matheson Iacopelli highlighted an otherwise rough night in Toledo in the first game of 2020. The Walleye scored 44 seconds into the game, but Iacopelli tied the score less than two minutes later. The Walleye then went on to score five straight goals, including two more in the first period, one in the middle stanza, and two more in the third. Iacopelli then set up David Pope for a one-timer on a late power play to make it 6-2, but Toledo handed the K-Wings their second straight loss.

Saturday, Jan. 4 – Fort Wayne 6, Kalamazoo 3  (Memorial Coliseum – Fort Wayne, IN) | Box Score

>> Twice Saturday, the K-Wings overcame deficits to force a 3-3 tie entering the third period in Fort Wayne. The Komets scored an early power play goal in the final frame and then scored twice late, including an empty net goal to defeat Kalamazoo 6-3 in the final game of the weekend. Matheson Iacopelli scored two goals for the K-Wings, including a breakaway goal in the first period and the game-tying goal with 3:03 left in the second. Justin Kovacs scored the other Kalamazoo goal, but Brady Shaw notched the game-winner and an insurance goal in the third for Fort Wayne.
