Muskies rally to beat Chisholm

The Muskies were down but never gave up—and it paid off.
Trailing 4-1 in the second period, the black-and-gold rallied to upend Chisholm 7-4 on Friday night at the “Ice for Kids” Arena here to improve their exhibition record to 1-1.
The Muskies iced the comeback with a three-goal outburst in a 45-second span in the third period to snap a 4-4 tie, led by Kurtis Wepruk’s two quick goals off scrambles in front of the net.
Twenty seconds later, Eric Mosbeck scored his second of the game by pouncing on another loose puck.
“I was happy for the kids,” Muskie head coach Glen Edwards said. “They finally found some success.
“The first part of the game wasn’t very great,” he admitted. “[But] it was nice to see them work hard and get some rewards for efforts.”
Chisholm had jumped out to an early 3-0 lead, leaving the 300 Muskie fans believing this would be the home team’s second blowout at the hands of a Minnesota-based team in a week.
The International Falls Broncos had blanked the Muskies 8-0 here last Tuesday.
But Mosbeck scored to cut the gap to 3-1 after the first. Then after Chisholm scored early in the second to go up 4-1, goals by Jamie Krukoski and Nathan Miller in the second and a breakaway tally by Donald Kellar midway through the third tied the game.
John Zub earned the win in goal for the Muskies.
The Muskies (1-2) will resume NorWOSSA play tomorrow in Dryden against the Eagles. They’ll play their first home league action this weekend (Dec. 7-8) against the Red Lake Rams.
