Good to see Marek Kvapil get back on the scoresheet after returning from Mississippi.
Newcomer Paul Szczechura had a goal and was named second star of the game while Junior Lessard finished -1 with 4 shots on goal, which was tied for the team high.
Recently the Ads have been outshooting their opposition and losing 1 goal heartbreakers. You get the feeling if they find a way to pull one or two of these out the floodgates might open and they'll get on a run, at least at home where they have the travel advantage.

After yielding the nets to Morgan Cey for a game, Ryan Munce was back between the pipes Tuesday night and backstopped the Sea Wolves to a 34 save 2-1 victory against the best team in the ECHL. For his stellar play in net against the Wildcatters, Munce earned First Star honors.
Munce is now 10-2 with a 1.97 GAA and 0.948 SV% on the season, leading the entire ECHL in both GAA and SV%. So far in the month of January 2008, Munce is an extraterrestrial 6-0 with a 1.31 GAA and 0.962 SV%. Hard to believe Munce not getting selected to the ECHL All-star game with these kind of numbers.
Mike Egener made his season debut tonight for the Wolves, but was held off the scoresheet.
