FRASER, Mich. – The Metro Jets completed a weekend home-and-home sweep of the Lansing Wolves with a 3-1 win Saturday night at Fraser Hockeyland.
Devlin Macaulay and Robby Flannery (pictured) scored to put the Jets up 2-1 after 40 minutes and then Griffin Sawyer’s empty-netter late in the third sealed the game.
Brian Tallieu won his second straight game in net, finishing with 17 saves.
“I think we had the little details down tonight,” said Tallieu. “We got pucks deep and pucks to the net. I’m pretty tired right now. Think I’ll go home and get some rest and get ready for next weekend.”
“Last night, we came out hard and dictated the play the majority of the game,” added Jets coach-GM Justin Quenneville. “After today’s game, we can say it was a good learning experience, a good teaching moment for us coaches where some of these young players can see how a team comes back hard. They needed to do what they did to give themselves a chance tonight, but definitely a good character win for us.
“We weren’t able to solve that goalie, but we found a way to finish strong.”
Jacob Redman scored Lansing’s lone goal and Sean Finstrom made 32 saves in goal.
Next weekend, Metro hosts the Cincinnati Thunder for a pair of games at Fraser Hockeyland. Game times are 7 p.m. Saturday night and 12:15 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
