Flint Junior Generals 7 @ Metro Jets 4: The Flint Junior Generals used a four goal-opening period and Anders Franke had a relatively easy night stopping only 17 shots as the Junior Generals cruised to a 7-4 win over the Metro Jets. Flint opened the game strong with four goals from four different Junior Generals including the first of three for a hat trick in his first game of the season. The Metro Jets made a late run scoring two third period goals but couldn’t quite mount a comeback versus a Flint squad that has yet to lose in regulation during the first 12 games. Kevin Shand had a good offensive night for the Jets scoring a goal and adding two assists. Boxscore
