Nitros edge out 4-3 win against Rockets

Despite shortened bench, Kimberley scores go-ahead goal in third period to earn the victory.

The Kimberley Dynamiters edged out a 4-3 win against the visiting Golden Rockets on Wednesday night, breaking a tie in the third period to clinch the victory.

Despite being outshot in all three frames, the Nitros traded goals with the Rockets over the three periods, until Dallin Wolf scored the game winner with five minutes to go in the affair.

Matthew Mitchell stood in goal for the Nitros, making 33 saves while James Leonard turned away 20 shots for the Rockets.

Golden capitalized once in five chances on the man-advantage, while Kimberley was denied on all three of theirs.

The Dynamiters were playing with a shortened roster following suspensions to Jeremy Mousseau, Tanner Grey and Connor Kutzner for a line brawl in Spokane last Friday, while Eric Buckley and Aaron Shubert served suspensions for the same reasons in Grand Forks on Saturday.

Dallin Wolf drew first blood 10 minutes into the opening period for the Nitros, but Golden responded with five minutes to go.

Jason Richter put Kimberley in the lead late in the second, but Carson George tied it up on the power play with two minutes remaining.

Jared Marchi put the Nitros in the lead for the third time less than a minute into the third, but Jacob Bergeron tied it up 12 minutes later.

Wolf scored his second of the game to win it for the Dynamiters with five minutes to go in the contest.
