FORT MYERS, Fla. - With plenty of defensemen on hand, Toledo Storm coach Nick Vitucci moved Jeff Lang up to forward for last night's game.
Lang, who does have a reputation as an offensive defenseman, responded with two goals and an assist as the Storm downed the Florida Everblades 5-3 in an ECHL preseason game.
Simo Pulkki added a goal and an assist, while Ken Magowan and Todd Nowicki notched a goal each for Toledo.
The Storm outshot the Everblades 36-27.
Goaltender Chad Collins had 24 saves for the Storm, which returns to the Sports Arena for a 7:30 game against Youngstown tonight.
