FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs roared back from their disappointing Game 1 loss to the Chippewa Steel by taking Games 2 and 3 behind a potent offense.
Game 2 saw the Ice Dogs win 5-4 as they outshot their Midwest Divisional opponent 47-18 on the night.
John Stampohar scored the first goal on a power play for Fairbanks, and Jack Johnston scored as well to give them the 2-0 advantage.
The second period was all Laker Aldridge who scored twice to put the Ice Dogs up 4-2.
The Steel however found the right holes to tie it up, but that's where Stampohar got his second goal on the night to close out the game.
Game 3 was even better offensively for the Ice Dogs who won 6-3 over Chippewa thanks to a strong third period.
After the Steel went up 1-0 on a power play, Fairbanks answered back to go up 2-1 with a power play goal from Luke Mobley and a short hander from Luke Ciolli.
Jax Murray scored another short hander for the Ice Dogs in the second, while Laker Aldridge, Tyler Deweese and Grant Ledford all scored in the third to help put away Chippewa.
The Ice Dogs improve to 21-13-3-2 with 47 points in the Midwest Division and head into the bye week resting up before their February 1 matchup against the Corpus Christi Ice Rays at home.
