It seemed during the third period a fire was lit under the Wolverines as they came back, hard. Scoring three goals during the period and nearly catching up. If it hadn't been for a goal from Ethan Bibeau it may have been a much closer game, but at 60 minutes the buzzer went and the Blizzard came out with a 6-4 win over the Wolverines
