The Titans are on the road to Pennsylvania again! This time they’ll be headed back to the west central part of the state to face the archrival Johnstown Tomahawks at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena. It will also be the final road trip before the turn of the calendar year.
In their last trip to Johnstown, the Titans took two of the three-game weekend series. They dropped the Friday opener 3-2 before taking the next two with a 4-1 win on Saturday and a 3-2 come-from-behind victory in a shootout on Sunday.
So far this season the Titans have gone 6-2-0 against the Tomahawks including 4-1-0 at the War Memorial. Two of the Titans wins have come in overtime and a shootout respectively.
The Titans finished the month of November having just played two home games at Middletown Ice World. By comparison the Titans played six road games in the month of November.
Also by comparison, the Tomahawks started the season off with an 11 game stretch on the road.
Keep it up Keegan!
Keegan Miller was the only Titan to score for the Titans last weekend. His two goals kept the team in last Friday’s game against the Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights. With less than two minutes to go in the game, his power play goal brought the Titans within one, before giving up the empty netter moments later.
Miller also has scored three goals in the last five games. He has now surged into a tie for the team lead in goals with Anthony Cusanelli at 11 goals apiece.
Berry is back, maybe:
After suffering a lower body injury making a save against the Tomahawks two weekend’s ago, goaltender Jack Berry will travel to Johnstown and will likely play. The save Berry made in overtime kept the game alive. He tried to continue in the final minutes, but was substituted as a precaution. Spencer Wright ultimately won the game for the Titans, stopping all six shootout attempts by Johnstown.
Get well soon list:
Davis Sebald: Lower body (day-to-day)
Dakota Ford: Out indefinitely (concussion)
Next home game – The Last Frontier:
The Titans will welcome the Kenai River Brown Bears out of Soldotna, Alaska next weekend for two games and another pair with the Fairbanks Ice Dogs the following week. The Titans will make the trek to Alaska in March to face both teams.
Then it will be a two-week layoff with the upcoming holidays and the turn of the New Year.
