CARDIAC K-WINGS STRIKE AGAIN, TAKE TWO OF THREE IN WORCESTER

Kyle Blaney's break-away goal with 52 seconds remaining to seal Kalamazoo’s four win road trip. 

BOX SCORE

WORCESTER, MA - The Kalamazoo Wings (23-17-0-0) did it again. Same score, different day. This time it was Kyle Blaney (7) that sank the game winning goal with 52 seconds remaining to beat the Worcester Railers (16-19-2-1) Sunday at the DCU Center, 2-1.

The K-Wings trailed for a good chunk of the game 1-0, but fought through multiple penalty kills and stellar goaltending on their way to victory. 

On the game winner, Cody Corbett (11) blocked a Railer shot from the top of the right circle. The puck then squirted towards the neutral zone and the speedy Kyle Blaney chugged it up ice alone. Worcester goaltender Ken Appleby (7-9-0-1) made the initial save, but the momentum of the puck trickled in past the line. 

The Railers earned the 1-0 lead with a goal at 8:34 of the first, and held it until Logan Lambdin (17) got the equalizer at the 13:22 mark of the second. 

Zach Jordan (7) made an absolutely filthy pass after collecting a puck off the faceoff. Jordan’s backhanded centering zip, from the boards to Lambdin, kept the K-Wings from chasing the lead the rest of the way out. 

But make no mistake, Jason Pawloski (2-3) and the K-Wings penalty kill unit set the foundation for the win. Pawloski finished with 24 saves, making multiple athletic stops.

As for the PK unit, it was 2 for 2, killing off a double-minor and another penalty assessed quickly after the four minute kill in the second. 

The K-Wings head home now after taking 4 of 5 games on the road. Next up is Wheeling at Wings Event Center on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m.
