K-WINGS FILL UP THE POWER PLAY AGAINST FUEL

Kalamazoo’s Iacopelli scored two power play goals in the second and Wings down Indy, 5-2.

BOX SCORE   

KALAMAZOO, MI - The Kalamazoo Wings (32-29-1-0) went off on the power play in the second period, to complete the come from behind victory over the Indy Fuel (27-30-2-3) Sunday at Indiana Farmers Coliseum, 5-2.

Big saves, resiliency and special teams was the story in this one, as K-Wings forward Matheson Iacopelli (16, 17) tied and surpassed a career high in goals with the man advantage in the second period. That, coupled with Trevor Gorsuch (20-20-0-0) locking down the crease (36 saves), propelled the K-Wings on the road.

First, Iacopelli scored from the left circle at the 10:32 mark to tie the game 2-2, assisting on the play was Eric Kattelus (6) and Kyle Blaney (25). Then, Iacopelli scored the game-winner at the 18:33 mark from the right circle to cap a perfect night on the power play for Kalamazoo. Kyle Blaney (26) and Justin Murray (19) assisted on the game-winner.

Kattelus also notched his 300th ECHL point with the assist on Iacopelli's first PPG.

Tanner Sorenson (19) added the much needed insurance goal at the 16:05 mark of the third, streaking in to score his second goal of the night unassisted from the right side. 

Sorenson’s (18) first goal of the game tied the score 1-1 at the 18:05 mark of the first period. The play was set up with precision by rookie defenseman Tyler Rockwell (12), as he zipped a pass from deep in the defensive zone to find Sorenson in stride for the breakaway goal. Ryan Cook (7) also assisted on the play. 

Finally, Erik Bradford (18) scored the empty net goal to put the exclamation point on the victory, and Jake Slaker (18) set up the play beautifully by creating the Indy turnover in the offensive zone. 

Kalamazoo heads home for a matchup with Iowa (27-27-7-1) at 7:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday at Wings Event Center.
