It’s Groundhog Day For The Philadelphia Wings

The Philadelphia Wings hosted the Halifax Thunderbirds at Wells Fargo Center Friday night. The same grey areas continue to hurt this Wings team. They lost the loose balls battle 87-59 and the faceoff battle 26-7, and allowed Halifax to take 65 shots on goal for the game. The defensive unit played well in the first quarter, but after that, things started to snowball. Especially at the start of the second half where Halifax scored 5 unanswered goals. Paul Day (Wings head coach) makes a goalie change for a brief time. Philadelphia and Halifax again go into overtime but this time the Thunderbirds would take the win, 15-14.

On A Good Note For The Wings…

If you’re a Philadelphia Wings fan looking for a positive takeaway from this game, Philly’s offense has looked good as of late. Ben McIntosh records a hat trick, scoring twice in transition then going into beast mode and taking the ball to the net. Halifax would bring a physical defensive double-team style of play which gave the Wings plenty of scoring opportunities. The Wings did a nice job with ball movement, picking their shots at the right time. Taggart Clark made me the offensive play of the night for the Wings, catching a loose ball off the glass and making a sweet goal. Scott Dominey also scored his first goal since joining the team in an offseason trade.

Halifax Playing With Hunger

The Halifax Thunderbirds are playing with hunger right now, they took care of business last week at home against the Rochester Knighthawks winning 13-8. Clarke Petterson put up a hat trick, getting a powerplay goal, scoring in transition, and then making the play of the night for Halifax with a behind-the-back shot for an incredible goal. Cody Jamieson also had himself a night. setting the tone in the second half with back-to-back goals, then finishing the job in overtime for the Thunderbirds.
