Philadelphia Wings vs. New Jersey Storm
January 20, 2002
Philly heads to Jersey to battle the Storm at the Prudential Center
The Wings were coming off their championship season in 2001, and were looking to continue the success in their storied franchise.
Philadelphia boasted a potent lineup of Tom Marechek, Jeff Ratcliffe, Jake Bergey, Mark Millon, Kevin Finneran, and Tom Ryan.
New Jersey had a strong offensive lineup of Cam Bomberry, Matt Panetta, Scott Stewart, Bill Lefeuvre, Grant Johnson, and Travis Kilgour.
The goaltending matchup was Chris Sanderson for the Wings facing Derek General for the Storm.
The Wings boasted one of the strongest powerplays in the league, while the Storm’s penalty killing was very efficient as well, already scoring a few shorthanded goals early in this season.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy this game in it’s entirety.
