Minnesota Magicians 1 @ Fairbanks Ice Dogs 4 - The Fairbanks Ice Dogs found their scoring touch in the second period Thursday night, and it proved to be enough to secure a win over the Minnesota Magicians in the opener of a three-game North American Hockey League series at the Big Dipper Ice Arena. The Ice Dogs only scored in the middle period in their 4-1 win in only the third game of the Midwest Division rivarly. Neither team scored in the first period or the third period.
