FRASER, Mich. – It wasn’t easy, but the Metro Jets will gladly take the four points after beating the West Michigan Wolves 3-1 Sunday to sweep the weekend series at Fraser Hockeyland.
The game was 1-1 after 40 minutes before Jets captain Graham Day snapped the tie at 4:45 of the third period and Jason Recchia added an insurance marker at 16:22 on the power play.
Mathias Tellstrom started the scoring with a goal 10:11 into the first period before Trevor Temple tied the game for the Wolves at 10:27 of the second period.
“They were a good test for us,” said Metro coach-GM Justin Quenneville. “Today, we just couldn’t get past their energy and they made some good plays, but (Jets goalie Andrew) Kormos made some better ones that gave us a chance to win.”
Kormos finished with 23 saves, while Alex Wilder stopped 38 for West Michigan.
“We just needed to get our feet moving just like we did yesterday to get the energy back up,” Recchia said. “We got those two goals and those were huge for us.”
The Jets travel to Peoria, Ill., next weekend for a pair with the Mustangs.
