Dayton Gems Weekly Review
DAYTON, OH - The Dayton Gems had a rough weekend as they dropped two of their three games over the weekend.
The Gems have now lost six of their last eight games.
Friday at Evansville
The Gems were unable to record a goal in the first two-and-a-half periods of play on Friday night at Evansville. Nathan Oke was able to break that scoreless drought for Dayton in the third period, but it wasn't until Brandon Naurato scored a powerplay goal in overtime that the Gems were able to claim the 2-1 victory over the IceMen.
The Gems were outshot 53-28 on the night. The 53 shots on goal are the most Dayton has allowed in a game this season.
In the end, it didn't matter.
Jeff Jakaitis had one of his best performances of the season on Friday night. During regulation, Jakaitis recorded 50 saves and recorded two more in overtime before earning the win. The 52 saves are the most Jakaitis has recorded in a single game this season.
Saturday vs. Fort Wayne
Just one day after an exciting overtime win, the Dayton Gems were shut down by Fort Wayne on Saturday night.
Dayton was shutout 2-0 by the Komets. It's the first time since Nov. 25 the Gems were shutout and only the third time all season.
The Komets outshot the Gems 36-20 on the night. Dayton never took more than nine shots in a single period.
The 20 total shots is the least amount of shots the Gems have taken in a game.
Sunday vs. Quad City
The Dayton Gems had a 2-1 lead heading into the third period, and let it slip away in the third as Quad City defeated the Gems 5-3.
The Mallards scored three unanswered goals to start the period and four total in the final frame to claim the win.
The Kettering Medical Center is proud to be the official title sponsor of the Gems for the 2010-11 season.
