Canes sweep Jacksonville

The Space Coast Hurricanes rode the goaltending of Nestor Logdal, some solid special teams play and a three-goal second period to a 5-3 victory Sunday and a sweep of the weekend series with the Jacksonville Ice Dogs at the Space Coast Iceplex in Rockledge, Florida.

Jordan Schiller and Lucas Mollison scored in the first period to give the Canes a 2-0 lead, before Tyler Potts countered for Jacksonville. A Jake Ninko power play goal early in the second increased the lead to 3-1, then an even-strength by Kyle Vanwormer and a power play goal by Jeremy Finger put Space Coast up 5-1 just past the half-way point of the game. Ice Dog goals by D.J. Thomas late in the second and mid-way through the third gave the visitors life, but solid goaltending by Logdal and a late 5-on-3 power play ended the Jacksonville comeback, as the Hurricanes held on for the 5-3 win.

Logdal was called on for 17 saves in the Space Coast net. Jared Lenner held his team in the game, despite allowing five goals, making several spectacular stops amongst his 37 saves. The Hurricanes went 2-for-9 on the power play and 5-of-5 on the penalty kill, finishing the weekend a perfect 11-of-11 in shorthanded situations.

Space Coast moves three points ahead of Jacksonville in the Met League South Florida Division, as both teams get ready for action next weekend at the Carolina Ice Palace in North Charleston, South Carolina. Follow all the action at
