New Jersey surrendered three goals and could not find the back of the net themselves as they were shutout by the Wisconsin Windigo for their first loss of the season.
Coming off a 5-4 overtime win last night over the Minnesota Wilderness, the Titans played again less than 14 hours after getting off the ice Wednesday night. The quick turnaround reared it’s head early, with New Jersey surrendering two goals in the first period for the second consecutive game. The Windigo doubled up the Titans in the shots on goal department, outshooting New Jersey 14-7 in the first period.
A scoreless second period staunched the bleeding, but Wisconsin added an insurance goal less than two minutes into the third to put the game out of reach. Dylan Krick stopped 28 of 31 shots on goal, and the Titans were outshot for the first time this season by a 31 to 27 margin.
The Titans fall to 3-1-0 in the season, but remain tied for first place of the East Division. New Jersey will be in action again tomorrow in a matchup against the Robertson Cup Finalist Austin Bruins. Faceoff is scheduled for 1pm Eastern Time and can be watched on NAHLtv.
