Cincinnati Cyclones Take Another Tough Loss
The Wheeling Nailers have come into US Bank arena in the first round of the Kelly Cup playoffs and have opened a 2-0 lead on the Cincinnati Cyclones. After taking the first game 4-1, Wheeling got past the 'Clones on Friday night 3-1. The goalie for the Nailers, Curtis Darling, was phenomenal tonight against the Cyclones only giving up one goal and stopping 34 shots. Cyclones missed a lot of opportunities to score throughout the game including a penalty shot by Barret Ehgoetz in the first period. The Cyclones were sniffing at making a run in the third period until Bryan Ewing netted a goal 13:50 into the third. The series will now return to Wheeling for three games where Wheeling could eliminate the Cyclones from their 2009 Kelly Cup defense.
