Five different Firebirds lit-the-lamp and six Flint players recorded a multi-point game en-route to a 7-4 victory over the Erie Otters Wednesday night. Hunter Holmes scored two goals in his first game back after missing 23 straight due to illness. Connor Roberts also scored twice in the contest and earned ‘Second-Star’ honors. Ty Dellandrea and Jack Wismer each had three-point nights. Luke Cavallin played an impressive game between-the-pipes, earning the win with 27 saves on 31 shots for the Firebirds' third straight victory.
