Wings Pick up Road Win
Aberdeen 2 @ Bismarck 1 - Matt Vernon made 26 saves and won his 38th game of the year as the Wings picked up a 2-1 road win in Bismarck. The 38 wins is the most by an NAHL goalie since the 2006-07 NAHL season when Ryan Zapolski (Mahoning Valley) posted 42 wins. After a scoreless 1st period, the Bobcats got on the board first midway through the 2nd period thanks to a goal from Tim Piechowski who scored his third goal in as many games. That was answered just over three minutes later with a goal from Aberdeen's Riley Murphy. Late in the 3rd period Adam Pitters would net the game-winner. John Roberts took the loss in goal for the Bobcats, making 22 saves. The win snapped the Bobcats 16 game point streak.
