Friday March 4th 2016 the Wings welcomed the Minnesota Magicians to the Odde Ice Center and came away with a 5-4 win!
The Wings were able to get on the board first when Ethan Stewart (Raver & Okeson) lit the lamp at the 8:41 mark of the 1st period. That would be the only scoring in the period. Matt Pulver (Bossert & DeYoung) gave the Wings a 2-0 lead early in the 2nd. The Magicians would add 2 of their own to send the teams into the locker rooms with a 2-2 tie heading into the final 20 minutes. In the 3rd Jackson Graalum (Siemers & Bossert) would regain the Wings lead 3-2 only to have the Magicians tie it up a little over a minute later. Ethan Stewart (Bossert & Raver) would make is a 4-3 game at the 7:39 mark of the 3rd. Tyler Bossert (Okeson & Cook) would give the Wings some insurance with the eventual game winner. Minnesota would add a goal to make things interesting late but the Wings would hold on 5-4! Peter Thome was in net for the Wings and was credited with the win stopping 25 of the 29 shots he faced!
