Bismarck Bobcats 1 @ Brookings Blizzard 2 – A goal with :10 seconds remaining in regulation from Eric Brenk gave the Brookings Blizzard their first win of the 2013-14 season as they beat the Bismarck Bobcats at home, 2-1 on Friday night. Bismarck started the game on the right note as forward Stanislav Dzakhov scored just 1:17 into the game.

Drew Weigman made 27 saves in the win, while Aaron Nelson took the loss making 37 saves. Boxscore
