Wheeling Wrap 11/8

It’s another edition of the weekly Wheeling Wrap, where I take a look at the week that was for the ECHL affiliate.

The Nailers opened up their weekend three in three with a home and home with a 6-1 loss to the Toledo Walleye Friday night.

After trailing 1-0 after one, the Nailers tied the game on a two-on-one with Cody Wydo finishing to tie the game. But the Walleye would score five unanswered goals and go on to the lopsided victory.

The teams would head to Ohio overnight and on Saturday, the Nailers extracted some revenge from the night prior and won 5-2. Josh Shalla had a three point night. Jordan Kwas scored two and Doug Carr picked up the win. After trailing 2-0, the Nailers would be the ones that would score five in a row to pick up the win.

Sunday, the Nailers would shutout the Kalamazoo Wings 3-0 back at WesBanco Arena. J.P. Anderson picked up the 24 save shutout. Nick Sorkin scored a pair of goals. It was the first time ever in Nailers history that they would shut out Kalamazoo.

The Nailers currently sit in a tie for fourth place with the Brampton Beast with a 4-3-1-0 record in the North Division good for 9 points.

Wheeling plays a pair of games this week starting Friday at home against Reading before hitting the road to Canada to take on the Brampton Beast.
