After falling to an early 2-0 hole in the first period, the Manitoba Moose rallied with four unanswered goals to defeat the visiting Omaha Ak-Sar-Ben Knights by score of 4-2 at the MTS Centre on Monday night.
Manitoba netminder Wade Flaherty stopped 29 of 31 shots on the night to earn his 11th win of the year and improve the Moose’s record to 4-0-1-0 on their current five-game homestand. It was Flaherty’s first game back from an injury which had sidelined him since Jan. 4.
Manitoba sits at 26-16-7-4 and 63 points in the North Division, just three points behind second-place Hamilton and six back of division leading Rochester.
Kris Chucko led Omaha with a goal and an assist in a losing effort.
