Wow. Coach Anzalone's boys just smacked the taste out of Trenton's mouth.
In his Johnstown debut, David Spina led the way with 2 goals and 1 assist while veteran Randy Rowe had 1 goal and 2 assists and Lightning prospects Stanislav Lascek and PJ Atherton each added 3 assists. Doug Andress, Gus Katsuras and Maxime Boisclair each piled on with 1 goal and 1 assist while Lightning prospect Brandon Elliot chipped in his first goal of the season and Adam Henrich and John Adams each had individual helpers.
Morgan Cey stopped 30 of 33 shots faced for the win to move his record to 3-1-0 this year. The Chiefs outshot the Titans 38 to 33, a marked turnaround after subpar efforts in their last couple of games. Spina, Rowe and Lascek were the game's three stars.
