Wings Offense Stalls In Central Division Semifinals

Apr 23, 2023

The Aberdeen Wings dropped game 2 of the first round to the St. Cloud Norsemen 2-0. They now have to battle to get 3 straight wins to make it to the Central Division Championship Series.

       The first period there were plenty of turnovers for both teams. The Wings were outshot 8-6 in the period both goaltenders were able to stop all shots they faced. The Wings were able to fight off 2 Norsemen power plays with one of them being a 5 on 3 for a full two minutes leading into the second period.
       In the second period the Wings killed the 5 on 3 that started in the first period. Shortly after the Norsemen got back to back goals from Daniels Murnieks giving them the 2-0 lead. That was it for offensive production for the night.
       The third period was more back and forth, with plenty of turn overs.  The Wings were able to get 10 shots on net as they held the Norsemen to only 3. St. Cloud was able to hold off the Wings pressure at the end of the game to seal the win and go up in the series 2-0.
       The Wings will travel to St. Cloud next Friday for game 3 as it is win or go home from now on in the series. Puck drop will be at 7:15 inside the St. Cloud MAC.
