Newcomer Linville tallies tying goal, OT winner Saturday night

WATERFORD, Mich. - Metro Jets' newcomer Lucas Linville scored the game-tying goal in the final minute of the third period and then completed his hat trick with the game-winner 30 seconds into overtime to lift the Jets past the Pittsburgh Vengeance 4-3 Saturday night at Lakeland Arena.

 Linville, a 19-year-old from Whitmore Lake, practiced with the Jets earlier in the week and made his debut Saturday night.

"Obviously, you saw the dynamic he brought to our team tonight," said Metro coach Justin Quenneville. "It's funny, but tonight and the way he played for his first game in a while, he definitely brought the intensity and the level of offense that we needed."

Linville started this season with the Brockville Braves of the Central Canada Hockey League, where he had five points in 26 games.

James Roznowski also scored for the Jets, while Kameron Limburg made 21 saves for the win in net.

Robert Kinsey and Chris McCambridge each had a goal and an assist for the Vengeance.

The two teams wrap up their weekend series Sunday with an 11:50 a.m. puck drop.
