Alaska Aces center Josh Soares, who scored the goal that eliminated Victoria in the previous playoff series, on Tuesday night sniped a goal that pushed the Las Vegas Wranglers to the brink of elimination.
Soares’ goal off Cam Keith‘s splendid rush with about four minutes to go Tuesday night combined with Jean-Philippe Lamoureux‘s customary brilliant goaltending to give the Aces a 3-1 victory at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
The victory gave the Aces a 3-0 lead in the ECHL’s best-of-7 National Conference finals. No team in the 21-season history of the ECHL has rebounded from a 3-0 deficit.
