Corbin pitches 30-save shutout Saturday as Jets down Toledo

WATERFORD, MI - Riley Corbin stopped all 30 shots he faced as the Metro Jets kept their NA3HL playoff hopes alive with a 6-0 win Saturday night over the Toledo Cherokee at Lakeland Arena.

The Jets and Cherokee are battling for the fourth and final playoff berth in the East Division and rematch Sunday afternoon in Toledo.

 "If we lose this game, we're done," Metro coach Jason Cirone said. "It doesn't matter if you win 6-0 or 1-0, a win is a win and we don't care how they come right now."

Zack MacKay, Mike Gambino, Doug Andrews and Alex Holm all tallied a goal and assist for the Jets (20-21-3-0), while captain Matt Stirling added four assists.

Mike Lawrence and Andrew Palushaj scored single goals in the win, but Palushaj suffered a knee injury in the third period and is possibly done for the season.

Goalies Nate Gay and Nate Miller made 20 saves for Toledo (24-20-0-1).

Game time Sunday at the Team Toledo Ice House is set for 2:30 p.m.
