K-WINGS SELLOUT PINK ICE, FALL TO FUEL

Indy pulls away from Kalamazoo early and holds on for the victory on Saturday.

BOX SCORE

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings (18-24-3-0), proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Columbus Blue Jackets, fell behind early to the Indy Fuel (31-15-2-0) Saturday, and lost 5-0 in front of a sold out Wings Event Center crowd for the ‘Pink Ice’ game, presented by Bronson.

The K-Wings and Fuel skated to a scoreless tie through the first 12 minutes of action, but Indy scored goals at the 12:09 and 15:20 marks and took a 2-0 lead into the first intermission.

Indy then scored twice early in the second, at the 3:19 and 4:15 marks, and Evan Cormier (5-15-2) was replaced by Hunter Vorva between the pipes. Cormier stopped 17 of 21 shots faced.

Vorva allowed just one goal at the 13:55 mark of the third and made 15 saves the rest of the way out.

The K-Wings were unable to solve Indy netminder Mitchell Weeks (12-4-1), who earned his second shutout of the season with the victory. Justin Taylor led Kalamazoo with three shots in the loss.

With the loss in the 22nd Edition of the Pink Ice game, Kalamazoo’s overall record in the annual event falls to 14-8 historically. 

Kalamazoo now heads to Cincinnati to face the Cyclones (26-12-5-2) on Wednesday at 7:35 p.m. EST at Heritage Bank Center.
