NAHL Showcase Game 2: Wings Fall in Overtime
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 3 vs. Aberdeen 2 (OT) - Aberdeen jumped ahead 1-0 with a goal just over a minute into the game from Jakub Breault. The Knights answered back later in the 1st period on a goal from Christopher Rubenach to tie the game at 1-1. The Knights took their first lead of the game as Shane Murphy scored his first goal of the season midway through the 2nd period. However, the Wings were able to tie the game as Natan Vertes scored on a nice wrist shot for his 4th goal of the NAHL Showcase. In the overtime, Caydon Meyer scored the game-winner through traffic to keep the Knights record perfect on the season. Alex Contey picked up the win in goal, making 16 saves, while Henry Welsch made 21 saves in the OT loss.
