Kalamazoo stifles Indy at home Friday, 2-0.

BOX SCORE

KALAMAZOO, MI - This one was for the dogs, literally, as the Kalamazoo Wings (27-26-0-0) earned their first shutout of the season, beating the Indy Fuel (23-26-2-3) at Wings Event Center on Friday by a score of 2-0. 

‘Pucks and Paws’ was the theme both on and off the ice, as Trevor Gorsuch (15-18-0-0) mits and legs were perfect, stopping all 32 shots faced. The shutout was Gorsuch’s first this season.

Justin Murray (5) wristed the game winning goal from the top of the left circle at the 11:38 mark of the first period. Erik Bradford (22) and Max Humitz (9) notched the assists. The goal was Murray’s second in three games, and Bradford extended his point streak to three with the helper (4A).

The insurance goal came at the 14:46 mark of the second on the power play (1/5) off the stick of Justin Taylor (18). The captain’s redirection off the initial Eric Kattelus (3) shot was his ninth power play goal of the season, moving him into a tie for No. 3 in ECHL PPGs. Max Humitz (10) earned his second point of the night with his assist. 

Honing in on Trevor Gorsuch’s performances over his last four games, the Western Michigan product is 3-1, allowing just 5 goals, making 135 saves and sporting a 1.27 goals-against average with a .964 save percentage.  

Kalamazoo’s outstanding special teams play continued on both sides, as the penalty kill was a perfect 3 for 3, propelling the team to three straight wins.

The K-Wings immediately hit the road to face the Iowa Heartlanders (25-24-6-1) on Saturday. Puck drop in Coralville is set for 8:00 p.m. EST.

The Kalamazoo Wings are a professional hockey team located in southwest Michigan that has been a staple in the Kalamazoo, MI professional sports landscape since 1974. The K-Wings compete in the ECHL and are the AA affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets and American Hockey League’s Cleveland Monsters.
