TRAVERSE CITY, MI - The Alpena Hockey team ended the regular season the way it started it, which a shut-out, as the Wildcats defeated Traverse City West 3-0 on Wednesday night at Howe Arena. The opening period saw the Wildcats have over nine minutes of Power Play time but could not solve Titan netminder Tyler Herzberg. After a scoreless opening period, the Wildcats got on the board early in the 2nd when Colby Plowman found the back of the net for his 18th goal of the season. Alpena took a two goal lead later in the period when Kyle VanDusen converted a pretty tick-tack-toe play from Plowman and Brett Ciupka. Kyle VanDusen ended the scoring late in the 3rd period when he flicked the puck the length of the ice into the open Titan net to put the game away. Alpena (20-4-1, 9-1-0 BNC) open up postseason play on February 25 when they take on Sault Ste. Marie in Gaylord at 6pm.
