What was truly an exciting night off the ice proved to be a very uninspiring night on the ice for the Power, as they fell 4-1 to the visiting Wisconsin Woodsmen. The Power’s Autism Acceptance Silent Auction raised more than $3,300 for the in-rink auction, with all proceeds benefitting the Autism Society of SE Wisconsin. The Power’s on-line auction runs from Monday-Thursday this week with many more AHL and NHL items. You can bid here.
The Power struggled to find flow and momentum all game for the early puck drop on Saturday. The Woodsmen took a first period lead when Landen Schwantes took advantage of a 4-minute Power penalty at 1:03. The Woodsmen scored twice in the second period, Macklin Yelle at 15:57 and Hugh Denimina at 9:13 for a 3-0 Tomah lead after two periods of play. Jackson Heim added another Woodsmen goal at 11:23 of the third for a 4-0 lead. The Power’s loan goal came from Nik Johnson scoring his first in a Power jersey at 4:14 of the period off a Bryce Garber (18) assist, but the Power couldn’t add on, ending with a 4-1 loss.
Brooks Barofsky stopped 24/28 shots on goal. The Power had 25 shots on goal.
The Power hit the road to Sauk Rapids, MN for a two-game match up with the Granite City Lumberjacks Friday and Saturday. Both games are at 7:30 pm and will be broadcast on NAHLTV. The Power returns home Friday, February 2 to take on the Wausau Cyclones for Washington County Humane Society Night sponsored by Pet Supplies Plus West Bend.
