Muskegon Lumberjacks Coach Todd Krygier is a prophet.

Two weeks ago, following his team’s second straight loss at home and sixthLSJ Logo incert loss in seven games, he said “Maybe a road trip will be a blessing in disguise.”

That certainly turned out to be the case.

The Lumberjacks blanked the Fargo Force 1-0 on Saturday, their fourth straight win on the road. Goalie Joey Daccord led the way, stopping all 27 shots he faced to collect the shoutout.

Daccord also got the win on Friday, and allowed only one goal on 46 shots in the two games in Fargo this weekend.

Muskegon improved to 6-6 on the season, good for 12 points in the standings and a three-way tie for sixth place in the USHL’s Eastern Conference with Madison and Team USA.

“It wasn’t pretty but we found a way to get another win,” Krygier said after the game. “The guys played a hard and smart road game. It’s difficult to go into any building in this league and win back-to-back games on the road.

“We need to work on our power play this week, but regardless I am very proud of our guys.”

The first period was scoreless.

Muskegon’s Logan Drevitch got the only goal at the 15:48 mark of the second period.  Collin Adams and Robbie DeMontis picked up assists on the tally.

Muskegon now heads back home for a pair of games next Friday and Saturday against the first place Dubuque Fighting Saints.
