Wilderness Win In Richfield

Ivan Chukarov scored the overtime-winner as the Minnesota Wilderness picked up a 3-2 overtime win on the road in Richfield on Tuesday night against the Magicians.  The game was scoreless through two periods thanks in large part to the goaltending of Magicians' Vaughan Ahrens and the Wilderness' Brock Kautz.  Kane Durment got the scoring going for the Magicians early in the 3rd period on a nice individual effort and stickhandling.  The Wilderness answered 10 minutes later as Aaron Miller put home a rebound after an Ahrens save in the low slot.  Three minutes later, Miller would strike again, this time from the high left circle as he wristed a shot past a screened Ahrens.  With less than four minutes to go, Lukas Laub tied things at 2-2 as he came around the back of the net and wrapped a shot that bounced in.  Chukarov's game-winner came after a face-off win as he one-timed a blast from the point past Ahrens.  Kautz made 22 saves in the win, while Ahrens made 27 saves in the loss.
