The K-Wings completed an important weekend sweep of 6 of 6 possible points as they look to solidify a 2017 Kelly Cup playoff spot. The top 4 teams in each of the four ECHL divisions make the playoffs, and Kalamzoo current sits 4th in the Central Division, 6 points behind 3rd place Quad Cities, and 3 points ahead of 5th place Tulsa.

Lightning forward prospect Cameron Darcy scored his first goal as a K-Wing on a back-door tap-in from Bolt camper Ben Wilson, earning 3rd Star honors. Darcy has pointed in each of his first 3 games with Kalamzaoo. Fellow prospect Brian Hart started a tic-tac-toe play that resulted in the K-Wings' 6th and final goal of the game. Kalamazoo travels back to the Quad Cities for another important game Wednesday night, before a 3-in-3 next weekend with Brampton, Toledo, and Adirondack.
