The Manitoba Moose (1-5-0-0) fell to the Iowa Wild (5-0-0-1) with a final score of 4-2 on Saturday night at Bell MTS Place.

With tensions still high from Friday's matchup, both the Wild and the Moose were called for a penalty less than four minutes into the first period. The Wild scored first with a power play goal from Sam Anas. The Moose tied the game with Logan Shaw's third of the season after a pass from below the goal line from JC Lipon. Less than three minutes later, the Wild answered back as Sam Anas struck again with assists from Kyle Bauman and Colton Beck making the score 2-1.

With 32 seconds to spare in the second frame, the Moose cut the Iowa lead to 3-2 with a goal from Cameron Schilling assisted by Michael Spacek and Johnathan Kovacevic.

Penalties proved to be a road block for the Moose in the third period. The Moose were shorthanded for six minutes throughout the frame while still looking to tie the contest. Despite not giving up a power play goal to the Wild, the Moose were unable to score an equalizer in the third period. Kyle Rau scored the empty net goal solidifying the 4-2 Wild victory.
