Alaska proves fruitful

The Minnesota Wilderness completed a 5-1 road trip to Alaska Saturday night with a 3-1 win against Kenai River. The Wilderness (30-21-1) swept the three-game series against the Brown

Bears (13-36-5). It also marked the end of a nine-game road trip, of which the Wilderness won seven.

Barrett Hall led the way Saturday night, with a goal and an assist, while Matt Smith shined again in net, making 29 saves.

The road success propelled the Wilderness to take sole possession of third place in the NAHL’s Midwest Division. It also sets up a showdown scheduled for this weekend in Cloquet with the team right behind them in fourth, the Janesville Jets. The teams square off Friday and Saturday at Northwoods Credit Union Arena in Cloquet.
