Wild Win Game Two, Knot Up Series With Lightning At One A Piece

The Winnipeg Wild were able to tie up the series with the Interlake Lightning at one a piece after a two to one win on the road in Teulon, Manitoba on Sunday. Through two games, it has been a hard fought series that has seen each team give no room to breathe for the other.

The first ten minutes of the first period saw no scoring and either team making groundbreaking mistakes. Just over halfway through the period the ice was broken by Cole Babych, scoring his first of the playoffs and gave the Wild the first lead of the game for the second straight contest. The Lightning answered back quickly under five minutes later with a goal from Cole Swanson, tying the game at one. The score stayed deadlocked at one, despite a late Lightning penalty. In the second period, the scoring came a little bit earlier this time just four minutes in from Tegan Kurtz, giving the Wild the lead back. Despite a chance at a power play mid way through the frame and some four on four hockey, the Lightning could not find the back of the net. In the third period, the Wild did a fantastic job controlling the game, making it a low event twenty minutes, which they saw out for the two to one victory.

With the series tied at one a piece, both teams head back to the Hockey For All Centre for a pivotal game three, that can see whoever wins take control of the best of five. Puck drop is at 7:15 and can also be seen on FloTV.
