It will come down to the one thing hockey fans crave most: A Game Seven.
UAA's Matt Bailey and Brad Duwe scored goals 88 seconds apart early in the second period, lifting the Seawolves over the UAF Nanooks, 2-1 on Friday night to even their best of three first round WCHA playoff series at one game apiece.
The third and decisive game is set for Saturday night at 7:05, at the Carlson Center in Fairbanks. Not only are the Seawolves and Nanooks even in this series, each school has won three games head to head in the season series.
Rob Gunderson made 25 svaes in net for UAA, allowing only a late first period goal by the Nanooks' Colton Parayko.
Saturday's winner advances to the WCHA Final Five next week in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The Seawolves have only two Final Five appearances in program history.
