After stunning loss, Jets come back with shootout win over Toledo

WATERFORD, Mich. - Just one day after losing in the final seconds in Toledo, the Metro Jets rebounded with a 3-2 shootout win over Toledo Sunday afternoon at Lakeland Arena.

Saturday night, Blake Podgorski's goal at 19:49 of the third period gave the Cherokee the stunning win after Cooper McLean and Travis Baranoski scored and Kam Limburg made 31 saves in net.

This afternoon, newcomer Nate Phillips (acquired last Friday from the Michigan Mountain Cats for defenseman Kenny Forton) and Alex Holm scored in regulation and then Holm's goal in the shootout was the difference.

Metro goalie Trevor Kalinowski made 14 saves in regulation and then stopped all Toledo shooters in the shootout.

Next up for the Jets (13-17-2) is a home-and-home series with the Flint Jr. Generals next weekend. The two teams play in Flint Saturday night at 7:30 p.m. and then at 11:50 a.m. Sunday in Waterford.
