Devils find first-ever victory at Elmira before losing two

The Trenton Devils won their first game ever in Elmira as they took down the Jackals 5-3.

Forward Chris Poli had the game-winner in the contest after the T-Devils put up four unanswered goals in the third frame. With less than five minutes left in the game, left wing Jason Paige and Poli created a two-on-one and Poli converted on a Paige pass.

Poli scored again after finding the Jackals goaltender’s five-hole from the boards.

Right wing Joe Rooney tied up the game just over five minutes into the third period when he and left wing Tony Zancanaro took advantage of an odd-man rush.

Goaltender Maxime Oullet had 34 saves on 37 shots in the contest to earn his second win. Oullet hadn’t been in net since March 2.

The T-Devils are dominating the power play after going 3-for-8 in the contest against the Jackals and have scored seven goals in 21 chances over the last three games.

The rest of the week wasn’t as successful for Trenton as they were shut out by the Johnstown Chiefs 5-0 and were denied a comeback victory against the Reading Royals 4-2.

Next up for Trenton is a visit to Elmira tonight, where the Jackals will try to get some redemption. Friday and Saturday, the T-Devils will play host to the Jackals and the Cincinnati Cyclones, the current first-place team by 24 points.
