Trenton hits the road Sunday to face the Pickering Panthers at 7 p.m.
Dukes stymied in loss to Fury
Three first period goals was all the Whitby Fury would need to bury the Wellington Dukes at Lehigh Arena in a 4-0 game.
Wellington outshot Whitby 30-29, but was shut down from the scoreboard by a stingy Fury defence and the brilliant goaltending of Luke Pearson, son of current Fury head coach and former Belleville Bull Rob Pearson.
The Dukes are off for a week before starting a “three-in-three” next weekend versus the Kingston Voyageurs at home.
