First home game in 31 days brings victory
ANCHORAGE – It was a long road trip home, but the Aces finally made it back to the Sullivan Arena Wednesday night for their fourth meeting with the Utah Grizzlies this season.
Two minutes into the first period, Nick Mazzolini cleaned up a loose puck in front of the net to put the Aces up 1-0.
Less than a minute into the second period, Utah’s Vinny Scarsella and David Vallorani executed a fast break to near perfection with Vallorani scoring and making it a 1-1 game.
Then, halfway through the second, Ross Ring-Jarvi got out of the penalty box, immediately grabbed a loose puck and dished to Tommy Mele, who scored and put the Aces up 2-1.
Alaska added on to the lead in the third with a goal by Mathew Sisca. The Aces are now 15-7-1 and are sitting in second place in the ECHL’s Western Division.
