CSHL Showcase Day 1 - Jets 3, Mountain Cats 2

BURTON, MI - Mike Denston's goal at 18:23 of the third period snapped a 2-2 tie and the Metro Jets held on to beat the Michigan Mountain Cats, 3-2, in the opening game of the CSHL Showcase at Ice Mountain Arenas.

For the Jets, now 6-5-0-0, it's their fifth straight win.

Goaltender Eric Trunick (Commerce Township, Mich.) stopped 39 shots for his league-best seventh victory.

After a scoreless first period, Mike Moroso (Macomb, Mich.) scored at 14:09 of the second period to give Metro a 1-0 lead.

Dan Hudson (Gregory, Mich.) tallied 55 seconds into the third period before two straight goals by the Mountain Cats (Daniel Cowan at 10:31 and Trevor Ladd at 12:52) tied the game at 2-all.

That set the stage for Denston's (White Lake, Mich.) heroics.

Robert Schultz finished with 44 saves for Michigan.

The Jets play the Peoria Mustangs tomorrow morning at 10 a.m.
