Fairbanks, AK. – Single goals in the second and third were all the Fairbanks Ice Dogs would need, as they skated to a 2-0 win over the Wenatchee Wild Monday night, in game three of the NAHL’s Midwest Division finals at the Big Dipper Ice Arena.

The first period was back-and-forth, but neither team was able to score in a period in which Fairbanks outshot the Wild 9-6.

The Ice Dogs opened the scoring with a second period shorthanded goal. Colton Wolter got credit for the counter, assisted by Duggie Lagrone at 12:12, making it 1-0 in favor of Fairbanks.

Yannick Vedel scored late in the third period for the Ice Dogs, with the assist going to Brett Gervais at 14:14. Fairbanks held on from there and won the game, 2-1. “Obviously, we’ve got to go back and make some adjustments on the power play” said Wenatchee Wild Head Coach Bliss Littler. “We had some good chances tonight; obviously they made a couple of more plays than we did. We’re a team that’s lived and died with the power play all year. We need to find a way to get some pucks to the net. Overall, I thought we played pretty well, they (Fairbanks) took advantage of a couple of miscues.”

Wenatchee outshot the Ice Dogs on the night, 25-19. Chase Perry (Andover, Minnesota) made 17 saves for the Wild; Kevin Aldridge had 25 stops for Fairbanks. Wenatchee went 0-for-4 on the power play and 5-of-5 on the penalty kill.

The Ice Dogs lead the best-of-five series, 2-1.

The series now shifts to Wenatchee for game 4 on Friday, April 25th and game 5, if necessary, on Saturday, April 26th. Faceoff time is 7:05pm PDT. Individual and group game tickets for all home playoff games are on sale now. Call 509.888.PUCK (7825).

Tampa, FL. — I’m back from a little time off. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers didn’t make any major moves while I was out and that has me thinking -- more than ever -- that they’ll use their first-round draft pick on a wide receiver.

Denver, CO. -- The Giants came to Coors Field in search of an antidote to a deep funk up and down their lineup. They felt bolstered by the depth to handle the "if it can happen, it will" nature of the ballpark. But with their bats kept quiet, their starting pitcher out before two complete innings, their long reliever injured after facing one batter and their leadoff man ejected before the seventh-inning stretch, the lopsided 8-2 loss only proved the adage.
