OVERALL RECORD: 13-20-4

LAST WEEK: 1-2-0

RESULTS

Wednesday, Jan. 15 - Florida 6, Kalamazoo 3 (Wings Event Center - Kalamazoo, MI)

>> The Kalamazoo Wings returned home for the first time in 2020 and fell behind 3-0 in the first period to the Florida Everblades. Two power play goals from Justin Kovacs and newcomer Austin Farley in the first 5:06 of the middle frame brought the K-Wings back to within one, but the Everblades added their fourth goal to go up 4-2 after two. Kovacs added his second goal of the game with eight minutes left in regulation to make it 4-3, but Florida tallied an insurance goal 1:18 later and added an empty net marker in the final minute to complete a 6-3 win.

Friday, Jan. 17 - Kalamazoo 5, Wheeling 4 (Wings Event Center - Kalamazoo, MI)

>> An early strike from Luke Sandler started a back-and-forth thriller between Kalamazoo and Wheeling Friday at Wings Event Center. After the Nailers tied it, Ian Edmondson scored to put the K-Wings back in front. Another Wheeling goal evened the score at 2-2 after one. Justin Kovacs continued his big week with another goal to put Kalamazoo back in the lead for the third time, but Wheeling scored a power play goal late in the second period to tie it at 3-3. Eric Kattelus put the K-Wings in front for good when he beat the buzzer with 6.6 seconds left in the stanza. Then Matheson Iacopelli buried a breakaway goal 27 seconds into the third for the eventual game-winner in a 5-4 finish.

Saturday, Jan. 18 - Florida 4, Kalamazoo 1 (Wings Event Center - Kalamazoo, MI)

>> It took a few minutes longer than Wednesday's game, but the Florida Everblades opened up another 3-0 first period lead of the K-Wings Saturday in the rematch. Justin Taylor brought Kalamazoo back to within two when he scored on a rebound midway through the second period, as the K-Wings trailed 3-1 entering the final frame. Florida, though, snuffed out Kalamazoo's hopes with a power play goal, confirmed by video review, early in the third period and held the K-Wings to just 21 shots.
