Your Aberdeen Wings Survived and advanced to force a game 3 Saturday afternoon in Duluth! The Wings did not waste any time getting on the board in game 2 as Carter Roo netted the 1st goal of the game just 32 seconds into the contest to give the Wings a 1-0 lead. Assisting on the Roo goal were Colin Raver & Tyler Bossert. The teams would spend the rest on the 1st and all of the 2nd with a 1-0 Wings lead. Roo changed all that with a shorthanded goal just 18 seconds into the 3rd period to give the Wings a 2-0 lead. Raver assisted on the goal. That apparently woke up the Aston Rebels as they responded with 2 goals in 61 seconds to tie the game. Regulation would end tied 2-2. At the 16:11 mark of the 1st overtime Wings Captain Gage Mackie picked up a blocked shot and ripped one past the Rebels goaltender for the game winning goal! Colton Fletcher had the assist on the Mackie Game Winner! Forbes Ploszaj was once again solid in net for the Wings stopping 34 of the 36 shots he faced.
