Wings Rally to Defeat Cyclones, 3-1

CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- Former Cyclone David Pacan scored both of his team's goals as the Kalamazoo Wings (11-6-0-2) edged past the Cincinnati Cyclones (12-8-0-1) by a 3-1 final score in front of 1,610 at U.S. Bank Arena on Tuesday night. Goaltender Joel Martin (W, 34 saves, 5-2-0-2) turned aside 34 of the 35 shots he faced in the tilt, earning his team the victory and pulling them within one point of catching the Cyclones in the North Division standings.

The Cyclones set the pace and imposed their will early in the game, outshooting the Wings 16-3 in the opening period. They also drew first blood when Paul Crowder scored his fifth goal of the season on a shot that trickled past Martin at 16:46. Due in part to a late power play opportunity, the Cyclones kept the Wings busy in their defensive zone for the remainder of the period and entered the first intermission with a one-goal lead.

The Wings found new life in the second stanza, however, forcing net minder Michael Houser (L, 16 saves, 4-5-0-1) to make several key saves to open the frame. The visitors eventually evened the score when Elgin Reid scored his first goal of the season on a tipped blast at 6:54. Houser and the Cyclones defense stood strong for the remainder of the period, despite being outshot 8-7, and both clubs entered the final frame knotted at one.

However, it wasnt long before the Wings took their first and final lead of the game. David Pacan scored his third goal of the year when he backhanded a loose puck past Houser at 2:55 after capitalizing on a turnover. Although the Cyclones outshot their opponents 11-8 in the final frame, they were unable to find the back of the net and the Wings padded their lead with an empty-net tally by Matt Caria with 37 seconds remaining.

I thought we played a pretty good game out there, said Cyclones captain David MacDonald. I think we still need to be a little bit more physical. I think that we created a lot, had a lot of shotsTheyre a really strong team and one of our biggest rivals. We have to regroup, have a little talk, and have to be more physical next game.

Cincinnati will travel to visit the Toledo Walleye tomorrow night with a 7:15pm opening face-off at the Huntington Center. Fans can hear all the action of the game on the Cyclones Radio Network (CyclonesHockey.com, America One, Cyclones Mobile App) beginning at 6:45pm.

The Cyclones will return to the ice at U.S. Bank Arena on Tuesday, December 17 when they host the Kalamazoo Wings at 7:30pm!
