Depending on your allegiances, the Alaska Aces either generated a remarkable rally for the ages Wednesday night or the Victoria Salmon Kings slouched off the ice in need of a collective hockey Heimlich Maneuver. Either way — and there was truth in both analyses — the Aces’ 5-2 victory in British Columbia proved stunning.
The Aces charged back from a two-goal deficit after two periods, strafed Victoria for four goals in less than six minutes early in the third and shoved the Salmon Kings to the precipice of elimination in the ECHL’s West Division finals.
Alaska leads the best-of-7 series 3-0 entering Friday night’s Game 4 at the Save-On-Foods Centre. No team in the league’s 21-season history has rebounded from a 3-0 deficit to win a series.
