Junior hockey: Johnson, Wilderness topple Minot

Dylan Johnson of Cloquet scored two goals to lead the Minnesota Wilderness to a 5-3 victory over the Minot Minotauros tonight in a North American Hockey League game at Heritage Center in Duluth.

The Wilderness led 3-1 after two periods before the Minotauros stormed back with a pair of goals to start the third period. It was short lived, however, as Nate Horn scored the game-winning goal at 16:41 in the third on assists by Ondrej Trejbal and Johnson, and Oula Kuure later added an empty-net insurance goal.

Nicholas Grabko had 22 saves for Minot while Ryan Fanti had 22 stops for Minnesota.
