It’s Tuesday afternoon and time to take a look back at how the ECHL’s Wheeling Nailers did this past week.
The Nailers traveled out West to the capital of Idaho in Boise, and took on the Idaho Steelheads for a trio of games.
Wheeling won once, by way of a shutout, on Friday.
Game 1 was Wednesday and the Nailers only scored one goal and lost 4-1. Tyler Currier scored for Wheeling. Sean Maguire took the loss in net, stopping 36 of 40. Wheeling went 0-for-5 on the power play and the Steelheads struck just once.
Game 2 was Friday and this was a shutout for Doug Carr. Carr stopped all 26 shots against him and the Nailers won 3-0. Garrett Meurs scored a pair of goals and Tyler Currier added the other. All of the scoring was done in the first period.
Game 3 was Saturday and the Nailers lost that one 5-1. Anthony Luciani had a hat trick for the Steelheads and an assist to go with ten shots. Doug Carr took the loss in net for the Nailers and Gage Quinney scored the only goal for Wheeling.
Wheeling dropped to fifth in the North Division with a 25-17-5-0 record good for 55 points.
The Nailers return home for a pair of games against the Brampton Beast on Wednesday and Friday and then welcome in the Kalamazoo Wings to WesBanco Arena on Saturday.
