Wheeling Wrap 2/28

It’s noon Tuesday and time to look back at the week that was for the ECHL affiliate in Wheeling.

The Nailers started the week with two games in Toledo, Ohio and only took one point with them out of the Central Division leaders.

On Friday, nothing went right for the Nailers and they were obliterated by the Walleye 7-0. Let’s just move on from this one.

On Saturday it was a closer affair with Toledo and won that ended in overtime for the Walleye by a score of 4-3. Fast forward to the end of the game, the Nailers had a goal in overtime called back on account of goaltender interference. As fate would have it, the next play would see the Walleye beat Doug Carr, who would end the night with 24 saves on 28 shots. Both Cody Wydo and Adam Krause had a goal and an assist in the contest.

Sunday, the Nailers headed to Fort Wayne, Indiana and took on the Komets and lost 4-3. Sean Maguire went back in the net after getting throttled Friday by Toledo. He stopped just 16 of 2o0 and was pulled late into the second for Doug Carr, who stopped all 10 shots but the Nailers were unable to overcome the deficit and were not able to score after the change. Johnny Daniels, Garrett Meurs and Cody Wydo all scored for the Nailers in the loss. Meurs added an assist. Danny Fick chipped in two assists also in the losing effort.

Wheeling remains fifth in the six team North Division with a record of 27-21-6-0, good for 60 points.

The Nailers remain on the road this week and take on the Indy Fuel this Friday before returning back to Fort Wayne for a pair against the Komets Saturday and Sunday.
