K-WINGS SEND TEDDYS FLYING, FUEL PULL AWAY IN THIRD

Kalamazoo finishes four-in-five stretch .500 and look to surge next week in Reading.

BOX SCORE

KALAMAZOO, MI – The Kalamazoo Wings (6-9-0-0), proud ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Vancouver Canucks, emptied the tank and made Teddy Bears fly but could not find an equalizer late and fell 4-2 versus the Indy Fuel (4-8-2-0) at Wings Event Center Sunday.

Justin Taylor (1) sent teddys flying at the 2:46 mark of the second period to get Kalamazoo on the board. Kurt Gosselin (1) assisted Taylor’s bank job off the Fuel netminder from the left wing corner below the goal line to tie the game at one. 

Indy opened the scoring on the power play with 4:16 left in the first period.  

The Fuel retook the lead at the 7:30 mark of the second and made it 3-1 at the 15:03 mark.

Kalamazoo cut the deficit to one when Ty Glover (5) found the back of the net on the power play just over two minutes later. Glover’s goal came off a delayed rush sparked by Erik Bradford (10) and Brad Morrison (8).

Indy scored the only goal of the third period at the 6:07 mark.

Goaltender Hunter Vorva (2-3-0-0) made 22 stops in the loss.

Kalamazoo finished the game 1-for-3 on the power play and 2-for-3 on the penalty kill. The K-Wings took the final shot total, 27-26.

There were 1,600 stuffed animals collected by the United States Marine Corps that will go to children in need this holiday season. 

The K-Wings are back in action Thursday at 7:00 p.m. EST against the Reading Royals (4-9-1-1) at Santander Arena.
