Junior hockey: Wilderness losing streak extended

The Wilderness have lost six straight.

The Minnesota Wilderness found themselves in too big a hole to get out of and avoid extending their losing streak to six, as the Fairbanks Ice Dogs scored the game's first three goals and won 6-3 on Saturday at Red Baron Arena in Marshall, Minnesota.

The Ice Dogs scored twice on a 5-on-3 power play to hold a 3-0 lead five minutes into the second period. Nicholas Rexine and Charlie Erickson pulled goals back, but the Wilderness ended the period down 5-3 and couldn't score in the third.

Jacob Zacharewicz made 31 saves before he was replaced with Graham Burke, who made 18.

Minnesota (13-11-1-0) returns home Friday to begin a home-and-home series with St. Cloud at Northwoods Credit Union Arena.
