Boudon, goalie duo lift Jets over Wooster in road victory, shutout Friday night

WOOSTER, Ohio – Louis Boudon recorded two goals and an assist as the Metro Jets blanked the Wooster Oilers 6-0 Friday night at the Alice Noble Ice Arena.

Jets goalies Andrew Kormos and Brian Tallieu combined on an 18-save shutout as Kormos started and played the first two periods and Tallieu was between the pipes for the third period.

“Good road win for the guys tonight,” said Jets coach-GM Justin Quenneville. “We knew what was on the line and we knew Wooster was going to make it hard on us. I’m even happier for our goalies tonight – Andrew and Brian sharing the shutout and making key saves during the game. Everybody is excited for tomorrow, but we know when the puck drops, we will be focused for 60 more minutes.”

Chase Sereno and Mathias Tellstrom each posted a goal and an assist, while Hayden Winch and Jason Newel scored one each.

Connor Inger and Metro captain Graham Day had two assists apiece.

“It’s meant a lot to me playing in these last few games,” said Tallieu. “Hard work definitely pays off no matter what situation. Tonight, I felt good. I was tracking the pucks very well, but most importantly, the shot patience was definitely key coming into the third.”

Wooster goalie Creighton Furber made 31 saves in suffering the defeat.

The Jets wrap up the 2016-17 regular season Saturday night against Wooster back at Fraser Hockeyland for its annual Heroes Game at 7 p.m.

Streaming of the game will be available on www.hockeytv.com.

“Tomorrow night will be very special and I’m glad I’ll get to be a part of this event,” Tallieu added. “It’s going to be a great atmosphere for the heroes who serve our country.”
