February 17th, 2013 | Comments (0)
Cincinnati, OH – For the second time in as many nights the Trenton Titans found themselves down just 1-0 through the first period with the top team in the North Division. But just like Friday, it was second period goals that proved to undo any hopes of a comeback.
Cincinnati (31-16-4-2=68 points) scored three goals in a span of under two minutes midway through the second period to take a 4-0 lead and eventual 5-2 home win before 5,083 fans at US Bank arena.
The Titans have now gone winless in their last seven games in Cincinnati (0-6-0-1), with their last road win there coming in a 4-2 decision on November 18, 2009.

The Cyclones grabbed the first period lead during a Titans power play. Mathieu Aubin led a 2-on-1 one break, finished by David MacDonald with a wrister past Scott Wedgewood (L, 35 saves, 15-18-3-1) for a short-handed goal less than six minutes into the first.
That score held until 11:48 were gone in second when Cincinnati exploded for three goals. When the clock showed 6:27 left in the period, Trevor Lewis, Mike Embach and Josh Shalla had given the Cyclones a 4-0 lead.
The lead jumped to 5-0 in a fight-marred third when Trenton (20-25-4-3=47 points) was finally able to solve Cyclone goalie Brian Foster (W, 24 saves, 18-6-4) in the final seven minutes. Jacob Drewiske (10) and Kory Nagy (5) were able to score a pair of hard-fought goals to ruin the shutout. For Drewiske, he would end the night with two points for the Titans.
