Muskegon then rallied, scoring three consecutive goals in a six-minute span. Dylan Wendt, Davis Pennington, and Tanner Kelly scored for the Jacks to tie the score at four after two periods.

In the third, Dubuque took the lead at the 8:40 mark of the frame, but Muskegon immediately answered less than a minute later when Wendt scored his second of the night. Cameron Berg collected his third assist of the night on the play.

Henry Thrun lit the lamp in overtime to lift Dubuque to the 6-5 OT win.

Stoever stopped 29 of 35 Dubuque shots in the overtime loss.
