MANCHESTER, N.H. – Groundhog Day was last week, but don’t tell that to David Kolomatis.

A little over a year ago, the Monarchs captain scored a game-winning overtime power play goal. He did that again on Friday night just under a minute into the extra frame, giving the Monarchs another 4-3 win, this time against the Wheeling Nailers.

Both teams had a power play goal prior to the game-winner, in what was a see-saw affair.

Nic Pierog provided Manchester’s first two goals, bringing him to 21 so far on the season, and Spencer Watson’s sliding shot late in the second period gave Manchester a 3-2 lead heading into the final twenty minutes.

Wheeling’s Troy Josephs forced the overtime heroics from Kolomatis, slipping the game-tying goal under the legs of Williams 12:06 into the third period.

In addition to his goal, Kolomatis also had a pair of assists, as did Tony Cameranesi.

The Monarchs return to action Saturday, February 9 at 6 p.m., when they take on the Cincinnati Cyclones for Pink in the Rink night at SNHU Arena.
