TOLEDO, Ohio – After a scoreless first period, the Metro Jets offense came alive in the second period and the Jets defeated the Toledo Cherokee 6-2 Friday night at the Team Toledo Ice House.
Chas Distelrath (pictured) scored two goals for the Jets, while Robby Flannery went for a goal and two assists and Andrew Kormos made 19 saves in goal.
“I thought we played our most complete game up to this point,” Jets coach-GM Justin Quenneville said. “We made good plays, good decisions and controlled the pace again. Other than a few bad bounces, we played the right way tonight and now we will head home to get ready for Pittsburgh tomorrow.”
Louis Boudon notched a goal and an assist, while Jake Gleason and Jason Newel added single goals for the Jets. Marc Schwartz added three assists and Chase Sereno and Stefan Boskovic tallied two each.
“Tonight was a good team win on the road,” said Gleason. “All lines were firing and we had saves when we needed them from Kormos and we came out with another two points.”
Adrian Morales made 53 saves for the Cherokee.
