No overtime or shoot-out was needed in the Green Bay Gamblers' 4-2 win over the Muskegon Lumberjacks Saturday night at the Resch Center.
The Gamblers set the tone in the first period with a pair of goals by Xan Gurney in the opening seconds and Ryan Kirwan four minutes later. The Lumberjacks would straddle the first intermission with two goals of their own, but Alex Nordstrom broke the tie at the 15:26 mark to put the Gamblers ahead for good. Alex Servagno added an empty-net goal in the final minute of the third period for insurance. Mason Lohrei collected two assists on the night while Matt Davis saved 37 of the 39 shots he faced.
