Cffountdown to Face-Off

For the seventh time this season, the Kalamazoo Wings will face-off against the Port Huron Flags. Kalamazoo leads the season series against Port Huron with a record of 4-1-1; however, the Flags skated away with a 4-3 shootout win in the teams' prior encounter last Saturday at Wings Stadium.

Kalamazoo comes into tonight's game looking to extend a season high five-game unbeaten streak (3-0-2). Also for the second straight night, the K-Wings will try to snap the longest winning streak in the league, as Port Huron has won six straight games. Last night, Kalamazoo ended Muskegon's seven-game win streak.

Saturday's win in Kalamazoo was the first at Wings Stadium for the Flags and first from any Port Huron team since February 22, 2004. Port Huron's six-game winning streak is the longest streak in their franchise's UHL history.
