Metro puts 11 on the board in Queen City romp

WATERFORD, MI - The Metro Jets won their third straight game in completing a two-game sweep of the Queen City Steam with an 11-3 win Sunday afternoon at Lakeland Arena.

All but two players recorded at least a point for the Jets, who with their 15th win equalled their win total from all of last season and are nearing the combined win total of the 2008-09 and 2009-10 seasons (17).

Justin Shureb (two goals, two assists), Steve Klisz (two goals, two assists) and Mike MacKinnon (goal, three assists) had four-point games, while Cameron Bazin (three assists), Travis Hargett (two goals, assist) and Zach Mohr (goal, two assists) recorded three points apiece.

In goal, Devin Williams finished with 28 saves and also drew an assist on Klisz's first goal.

Jordan Jones, Chris Hellebuyck and Matt Stemkoski added a goal apiece in the win. For Hellebuyck, it was his seventh goal over his last six games.

Jets captain Tommy Kilgore chipped in two assists.

"This was a coming out party for the whole team," said Jets head coach Jason Cirone. "I told the guys that one line can't win a hockey game and all four lines are getting the job done right now. Our six defensemen are playing well and we're getting good goaltending."

Metro (15-10-0-0) plays in Toledo on Friday and then in Flint next Sunday before breaking for the holidays.

Next home game for the Jets is on Jan. 7 against Flint.
