BEDFORD, MA -- The Wizards picked up two points on the road with a win over the New England Wolves on Saturday night. With the victory, the Wizards moved to 26-17-2 on the season, and are still sitting in 3rd place in the Boston Division (4th place in North Conference).
"That was a complete performance from our team," said Wizards head coach and general manager Freddy Meyer. "Kory [Falite] and I were very happy with the way our team played."
It only took 29 seconds for Brandon Turer to put the Wizards on the board first. Michael Namon then gave the boys a 2-0 lead with a power-play goal around the 15-minute mark of the frame. The special team units on the Wizards continued to execute with a pair of short-handed goals from Dylan Schuett and Devin Panzeca to put the Wizards up 4-0 with five minutes left in the 1st period. With their tallies, both Schuett and Panzeca extended their point streak out to 17 games with the goals. Schuett added another goal from Matt Fuller and Panzeca in the final seconds of the frame to give the Wizards a comfortable 5-0 advantage going into the break.
After a scoreless 2nd period, Turer pocketed his second goal of the game in the first couple minutes of the final frame to give the Wizards a six-goal lead. Jeremy Vasquez would then cap the scoring by converting yet again for the Wizards on the power-play giving them a stellar 42.8% power play percentage for the game. Jordan White was able to finish off his first shutout performance of the season, stopping all 25 shots that he saw in the victory. Fuller recorded three assists in the winning effort as well.
The Wizards will get back to work next week with a pair of road games starting with the Boston Jr. Rangers on Wednesday, followed by a matchup with the Valley Jr. Warriors on Friday.
