Philadelphia Wings' Kevin Crowley records 300th career goal in home opener

Philadelphia Wings' Kevin Crowley records 300th career goal in home opener

Philadelphia Wings forward Kevin Crowley had more than just his team’s third consecutive win to celebrate Friday night. “The Big Cat,” as he’s called, recorded a major milestone Friday night, scoring his 300th career goal in the Wings' 18-10 win over the Vancouver Warriors. 

When asked about the play leading up to that goal, Crowley joked about the pass from teammate Josh Currier that resulted in his landmark achievement.

“Josh threw me that awful pass behind me and luckily I got a hold of it,” he said.

No. 300 wasn’t exactly on his mind at the time he netted the ball. Crowley, the Wings' captain, explained that not being fully aware of how close he was to that accomplishment added to his excitement when it was announced.

Earlier this week, Crowley did an interview on The John DeBella Show where he talked about the goals he sets for himself before going into a season.

“Personally, I have my goals," he said. "How many goals I want to score in a season, how many assists, how many points — but, realistically it’s about winning games and if I can hit my numbers, chances are that our team has a better chance to win."

Crowley’s performance against the Warriors was a clear testament to that. It even led to him being named one of three stars of the game. His 300th goal was one of three he tallied in the team's home opener along with two assists.

His efforts have helped the Wings to set a new franchise record with their three straight wins.
