The second came just over a minute later, when Alex Konovalov found the mark with a hard shot from the left point.Green Bay tied the score at 15:23 of the third period on a goal by Mason Lohrei, and it looked like the game was headed to overtime.But Gaffney prevented that from happening when he popped a rebound into the Green Bay net with 58 seconds left, allowing the Jacks to skate off with the big win.“We really needed it,” said Gaffney about the victory. “We have always had confidence in ourselves, and everything has started clicking. We knew that we had the talent to get better.”The Lumberjacks outshot the Gamblers 39-31. Goalie Noah Giesbrecht got the win, evening his record at 3-3 on the season. John Prokop had a pair of assists for Muskegon. Shop Now Nuun Sport: Electrolyte Drink Tablets, Citru… × Thank you! This will help us improve your ad experience.
