The Minnesota Wilderness earned maximum points from their weekend series against the Janesville Jets, winning 4-3 in a shootout on Saturday, Nov. 26 at Northwoods Credit Union Arena.

Much like Friday, the Wilderness had to get out of a 2-0 hole, which they did with goals 30 seconds apart from Charlie Erickson and Adam Johnson. Michael Quinn gave Minnesota the lead with a power play goal at 2:25 of the third period, but Connor Deturris evened it up for Janesville at 9:04.

Kevin Marx Noren had a late game-winning goal in regulation for Minnesota on Friday, but on Saturday his decisive effort came in the shootout, where he was the only scorer.

Isak Posch made 27 saves in net for the Wilderness (14-7-2), who held a 40-30 shot advantage. Minnesota hosts St. Cloud to begin a home-and-home series on Friday.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
