Wilderness double up Bruins on Thursday, 4-2

January 7, 2016

Tristan Rostagno scored twice to lead the Minnesota Wilderness to a 4-2 home win over the Austin Bruins.

Austin 2 @ MN Wilderness 4 – Wilderness defenseman Tristan Rostagno scored twice to lead the Minnesota Wilderness to a 4-2 win at home over the visiting Austin Bruins in the lone NAHL game on Thursday night. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Minnesota.
The Wilderness wasted no time getting on the board as less than five minutes into the game Brett Heikkila fired a shot from the right face-off cirle that beat Bruins goalie Kris Carlson. 
Midway through the 2nd period, Rostagno would make it 2-0 for the Wilderness as he scored a power play goal thanks to a great passing play that saw Rostagno one-time a shot from the high slot with assists to Aaron Miller and Tyler Vold. Less than five minutes later, the Bruins broke through for their first goal of the game to make it 2-1 as Austin Rueschhoff scored off a face-off as a lazered a shot over the shoulder of Luke Kania.
Early in the 3rd period, Austin would tie the game at 2-2 as Dawson DiPietro tipped home a shot from the point after some nice forechecking by his linemates. With just over seven minutes remaining in the game, it was Rostagno who would light the lamp again on the power play again thanks to another one-time bomb, this time from a tougher angle that eluded Carlson high to the glove side. Alex Toscano would add an empty-netter to make the final 4-2.
Kania would make 24 saves in the win, while Carlson made 26 saves in the loss.
