Wings lose twice over weekend
The Danville Wings ended a six game road trip on Friday night with a loss at Green Bay. The Wings came out of the night winless in their last 9 (0-8-1). Green Bay scored 3 power play goals in the third period. Bryan Marshall scored his 18th goal of the year in the third but it was to late for the Wings. On Saturday night the Wings finally came home to host the Chicago Steel. New addition Aaron McCloy scored his first goal of the year for the Wings two minutes into the game to give the Wings a quick lead. But Chicago scored a pair of power play goals in a 44 second span to lead after one period 2-1. Derek Patrosso notched his 11th goal in the second before the Steel took back the lead on another power play goal. In the third Jeremy Hall notted it up on a nice pass from Josef Fojtek. Nearing the end of regulation the Wings got a bad holding call, their 71st minute of penalties in the game leading the Steel to the power play to start overtime. In the extra session Chicago scored 43 seconds in for the win.
The Wings host back-to-back home games next weekend against St. Louis and Green Bay.
