Snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. JHN-3 TRE-4 (SO) Trenton scored the tying goal to send the game to overtime with just 6 seconds left in regulation before winning in the shootout. Morgan Cey stopped 27 of 30 in his first game back from Springfield, but if there's one area of his game he's struggled at this season it has been in the shootouts. Adam Henrich stayed hot with an assist in the game. Game sheet from [url=http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/ppublic.cgi?action=box&id=3091] ECHL.com.[/url]
