Tomahawks End 2013 with a Sweep

After a month on the road, and before going on the road again for about a month, the Johnstown Tomahawks made their way back to the CCWM for two home games against the Michigan Warriors.

This was the first weekend since November 22-23 that the Tomahawks have been able to get all four points. Interesting that those two games were the last time Johnstown played at home. Nothing like some good home cooking to get the team back on the right track.

Johnstown is now on a three game winning streak as the head on the road this weekend vs. the Soo Eagles (Friday, Saturday, Sunday). We'll have the weekend preview tomorrow.

Game 1- Johnstown 3-2 S/O Win (Boxscore, Official Game Review)
Game 2- Johnstown 4-1 Win (Boxscore, Official Game Review)

Notes:

---In two games a total of 6,634 fans came out to watch the Tomahawks' in action.

---Before last night's game, the team helped a fan pull off a wedding proposal by holding a sign reading "Will you Marry me."

---Both Moore and Okicki picked up wins this series.

---Johnstown is now 6-2 in shootouts this season.

---When Johnstown leads after two periods they have a record of 10-0-1. Last season Johnstown was 20-3-2 at the end of the season when leading after two periods.

---Look for the Tomahawks' fourth goal on Tuesday night to be named one of the "NAHL's Plays of the Week".

---Johnstown was 2 for 12 on the power play this weekend. Michigan was 1 for 10.

---Zach Geiger only played on Monday night. He had one fight and no points. He did though play with a lot of energy, had some big hits, and came close to scoring a few times.

---This was the first time Jake Fairchild returned to Johnstown to face his old team. He only played on Tuesday night, where he had an assist on the Warriors' only goal, four penalty minutes, and was a -1.

---Johnstown has a very short week as they hit the road tomorrow and get ready to face Soo this weekend.

---Tyler Basham scored the game winning goal in the shootout on Monday night. He leads the team in shootout goals this season scoring 3 on 4 attempts. (75%)

---Johnstown has the most wins in the North Division with 20.

---Michigan has new uniforms and they look much better than their old ones from last season.

---Michigan's goalie Trevor Gorsuch played a great game on Monday night, and was one of the only reason's Michigan was able to pick up one point. He's a great goalie and a guy we'd love to see on the Tomahawks, though we already have more than capable goalies.
