After a disheartening 6-2 loss to the Bighorns the previous night, the Gillette Wild took the lead with a power play goal fifteen minutes into the game on the period’s only shot on goal. Another goal didn’t come until almost nine minutes into the second period when Helena’s Hagen Nemzek tied the score on a power play opportunity.
Helena’s Cody Blom scored the game winning goal a little more than five minutes into the third period. The Bighorns and the Wild both had several more opportunities to score but both team’s goalies did an amazing job protecting the net.
The Bighorns will return home next weekend for a two-game homestand where they will host the Billings Bulls on Friday and the Bozeman Icedogs on Saturday. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.HelenaBighorns.com or call (406) 457-2817.
