FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alaska Nanooks ended their five game losing streak on the ice, splitting their series against the Bemidji State Beavers, including a game winner in overtime.
To get to the good, we have to go through the bad.
And Game 1 was really bad, especially in the second period.
The Nooks fell three-nothing, as they had no answer for the Beavers' staunch defense.
Bemidiji State scored twice in the second, and again in the third to put the game far out of reach.
This game also saw Captain Nikolas Koberstein receive a one game suspension due to a hit he delivered in the third, getting a game misconduct.
Game 2 is where the fun began, as Justin Young ended the misery with an overtime goal to send the Nanooks home happy splitting the series with the Beavers.
The Nooks started the night with a goal from Ryker Leer in the first period, and held that lead until a late rally from Bemidji tied it up on a power play in the waning moments of the third period.
James LeDouce, who was responsible for the penalty in the third which aided the Beavers grabbed redemption by the horns and assisted Young with the goal in extra time.
This also happens to be Justin Young's first goal of the season, and it helps the Nanooks record improve to 5-10-1-1 in the WCHA with a home series this week against the Bowling Green Falcons starting at 7 p.m. on Friday.
