Jets run win streak to three games with shootout win over Flint

WATERFORD, MI - The Flint Jr. Generals scored late in the third period to knot the game at 3-all, but the Metro Jets eked out a 4-3 win in a shootout Friday night at Lakeland Arena to extend their winning streak to three games.

Andrew Palushaj scored two goals for the Jets, while captain Matt Stirling had a goal and two assists and Mike Gambino a goal and an helper.

The win was the first for the Jets against Flint since last January when Metro squeezed out a 4-3 win at Lakeland.

Flint led 2-1 after two period before Palushaj and Stirling scored in the third to put the Jets ahead.

Nick Gnagni recorded the equalizer at 19:08 of the third with goalie Patrick Drazkowski on the bench for the extra attacker.

In the shootout, Metro goalie Austin Julvezan stopped three of the four Flint shooters and picked up his first win of the season. Julvezan made 24 saves in the game.

Drazkowski finished with 32 saves in the Flint net, while Eddie Osowski had a goal and an assist.

The Jets (5-6-0-0) face the Michigan Mountain Cats on the road in Fraser next Saturday night (Nov. 3) before returning home the following afternoon to host the Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks at 2:50 p.m.
