Wings Fall Friday 5-2

The Wings 4 game winning streak was snapped Friday night at the Odde Ice Center as Bismarck left town with a 5-2 win.  The Bobcats got on the board first with a Ben Troumbly goal at the 14:33 mark of the 1st period.  Aberdeen would respond with a Jacob Bosse snipe to tie things up at 1 all.  Bismarck would answer with two more goals from Jake Mclean and Luke Roelofs.  It looked like Bismarck would head into the 2nd intermission with a two goal lead, until Parks Wallace was able to find the back of the net from the near side has making it a 2-3 game heading into the final 20 minutes.  Jake Mclean would get his second of the game just 1:42 into the 3rd to give the Bobcats a two goal lead.  Adam Pietila would add an empty netter to seal the win for Bismarck.

Aberdeen went 0/2 on the power play, while Bismarck went 0/4.  Greg Orosz stopped 21 of 25 on the night.  “We had a strong night on the penalty kill but left too many opportunities on the table.  A couple missed assignments hurt us, allowing them to build momentum.  We need to be stronger and sharper tomorrow to earn the split.” Wings Head Coach Steve Jennings
