The K-Wings secured their place in the 2017 Kelly Cup Playoffs Friday night in front of 2,154 fans at the Wings Event Center, besting the Norfolk Admirals 5-3. Nic Riopel returned to the net and turned away 36 shots. Lightning prospect Cam Darcy scored the eventual game-winner on an unassisted marker early in the 3rd period with a one-on-one glove-side move against the Norfolk netminder, earning 2nd Star Honors. Kalamazoo and Quad Cities are battling to see who draws Toledo or Fort Wayne in the playoffs, with the Mallards up by 4 points over the K-Wings with a game-in-hand. Kalamazoo finishes up the three-game home stand Saturday night with a rematch against Norfolk.
