MacKinnon's six-point game leads Jets past Mountain Cats

TROY, MI - Troy native Mike MacKinnon had a hand in each goal as he scored two shorthanded goals and added four assists as the Metro Jets opened the NA3HL East Showcase with a 6-3 win over the Michigan Mountain Cats Sunday night at the Troy Sports Center.

The Mountain Cats had a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes, but then the Jets exploded for four goals in the second period - MacKinnon's two, Matt Stemkoski and Jake Schlacht.

Steve Klisz scored the Jets' first goal in the first period and Justin Shureb added a goal in the third period.

Dillon Kelley finished with 36 saves in goal for the Jets (25-14-0-1). Will Shier chipped in two assists from the blue line.

Metro, winners of five straight games, takes on the Toledo Cherokee tomorrow at 2:45 p.m.
