Fairbanks wins a wild one in OT; on to decisive Game 5 with Kenai River

Doyle Woody,Dwoody@adn.com

Just got done watching a wild one at Sullivan Arena -- Stockton 5, Aces 3 after a crazy third period -- and saw they had an even wilder one in Soldotna tonight, where the NAHL's Fairbanks Ice Dogs beat the Kenai River Brown Bears, 6-5 in overtime, to force a decisive Game 5 in that first-round playoff series.

Fairbanks led 3-0 in the first period and 4-1 in the second, but found itself trailing 5-4 when Kenai River's Zac Lazzaro scored his second goal of the night with less than eight minutes left in regulation.

Fairbanks' Taylor Munson scored with 76 seconds left in regulation to force extra time and Garret Clemment (one goal, two helpers) ended things 4:09 into OT.

By the way, Game 5 is Monday night at the Big Dipper in Fairbanks.
