This weeks Throw Back Thursday focuses on a weekend series at Coulee Region. Friday January 6th 2012 the Wings came out firing getting a goal from Sean McLaughlin (Brooks & Mottiqua) just 2 minutes into the game. Corey Ward (Obarzanek & Ohnsted) would follow less then 2 minutes later to put the Wings on top 2-0 early in the 1st. Coulee Region would get a goal at the end of the 1st to make it a 1 goal game heading into the locker room. After a scoreless 2nd period The Chill would tie the game at 2 early in the 3rd. Corey Ward would put the Wings back on top late in the 3rd on an unassisted goal. The Chill would pull their goaltender for an extra attacker and it paid off with a goal to tie the game with under a minute to go. The game would go through a scoreless overtime period before the Wings would get goals from Obarzanek, Ward & Prescott to get a 4-3 SO win. Leisner stopped 44 of the 47 shots he faced.
The next night it was all Aberdeen, Colin Hurley (Obarzanek) put the Wings on the board under a minute into the game. Kevin Becker (McLaughlin & Hurley) & Steve Obarzanek (Becker & Hurley) would provide the rest of the offense as the Wings cruised to a 3-0 win and weekend road sweep of the Chill. Leisner stopped all 30 shots he faced.
