GRIZZLIES MAUL K-WINGS IN SHUTOUT

Kalamazoo unable to capitalize on opportunities in loss to Utah

Box Score

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--The Kalamazoo Wings (10-6-0-0) were shut out by the Utah Grizzlies (11-7-1-0) in a 4-0 loss at Maverik Center on Monday night.

The Grizzlies opened the scoring 9:13 into the first period when Utah defender Charle-Edouard D’Astous took a slapper from the blue line. Utah outshot Kalamazoo 18 to 9 in the first period.

It would be all Grizzlies in the second. A great pass left Luka Burzan open. Burzan found the back of the net on a one-timer to make it 2-0 Grizzlies. The K-Wings were not without opportunities in the second, unable to take advantage of a minute and a half long 5-on-3 situation. Brenden Miller was called for slashing with just under three minutes remaining in the period. The Grizzlies found their third goal the ensuing power play on a nifty backhand from Utah forward Trey Bradley.

In the third, Burzan found his second goal of the night, scoring on a 4-on-4 opportunity to make 4-0 Utah. Burzan scored off of a faceoff, and Trevor Gorsuch never saw the puck. Things got chippy in the final ten minutes as multiple fights concluded the game.

K-Wings goalie Trevor Gorsuch stopped 36 of the 40 shots he faced in the loss.
