Aces continue to make quick work when up 3-1 in playoff series

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

Tonight marked the eighth time in Alaska Aces history the club carried a 3-1 lead into Game 5 of a best-of-7 series, and Alaska's 2-1 win at Idaho maintained a trend.

In seven of those eight instances, the Aces have finished off the opponent in Game 5 to win the series 4-1. Only once have they required six games to deliver the dagger -- that came in 2007 against Victoria in the conference quarterfinals.
