Ice Dogs shut out Magicians in series opener

By  | 

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs were in a battle between the two very best in the NAHL Midwest Division last night when they kicked off a two game series against the Minnesota Magicians.
Game one completely belonged to the Dogs, who shut out the Magicians for a 3-0 victory.
The Ice Dogs gave themselves an early advantage, scoring all of their goals in the first two periods, and then held the Magic Men scoreless in the third to secure the win.
Both the offense and the defense for the Ice Dogs was on fire as they held Minnesota to just 16 shots, while firing 28 of their own.
Parker Brown scored first for the Ice Dogs while Tanner Edwards and Luke Ciolli both tickled the twine in the second period.
Two out of those three goals were unassisted, with Noah Wilson providing the only assist on Ciolli's goal.
Goaltender Nate Reid earned his fourth shutout in his Ice Dog Career, and his second against Minnesota.
As I said earlier this week, this is a battle of posititioning in the NAHL Midwest Division.
The Dogs are still in second place but are now only three points behind the Magicians.
