Four-goal game from Marx Noren ends Wilderness losing streak
The Swedish forward had a natural hat trick plus the fourth goal.
BLAINE, Minn. — Kevin Marx Noren had a game to remember on Thursday, Sept. 15, at the North American Hockey League Showcase and because of it, the Minnesota Wilderness could forget about their three-game season-opening losing streak.
Marx Noren scored four consecutive times as the Wilderness knocked off the Northeast Generals 7-3 for their first win of the season at the Schwan's Super Rink.
Minnesota fell behind 2-0 in the first period before Marx Noren got Minnesota on the board at 17:52, with Hermantown alum Beau Janzig drawing the primary assist. Marx Noren blazed through the second period, completing a natural hat trick with goals at 5:45 and 13:32 before scoring a fourth time, on the power play, at 16:25.
Marx Noren let his teammates in on the act in the third, as Noah Griswold, Joe Cesario and Jack Seaverson had insurance goals, though Marx Noren assisted on Cesario's.
Cesari and Adam Johnson had two assists apiece. Wilderness goaltender Konrad Kausch made 33 saves.
Minnesota (1-3) continues play at the Showcase with a 4:45 p.m. game on Friday vs. the El Paso Rhinos.
