SAN DIEGO – The four-game win streak for the Manitoba Moose started against the San Diego Gulls, so it’s fitting that the Gulls ended it.
The Moose fell behind 2-0 early and couldn’t mount the comeback, falling 3-2 in California.
The game marked the opener of a five-game road trip. Dan DeSalvo and Kevin Czuczman got the goals for the Moose while Eric Comrie was solid, making 34 saves in the loss.
Some good news for the Moose was that Brenden Kichton made his return to the lineup after missing the last nine games.
The two teams meet again Saturday night in San Diego.
