The Kenai River Brown Bears topped the Minnesota Magicians 5-1 on Saturday in Richfield, Minnesota, to earn a weekend split.
The Bears move to 3-5 in the North American Hockey League, good for third place in the Midwest Division. The Magicians, at 4-2, are in second place.
Kenai River coach Geoff Beauparlant thought it was a big victory for his team to cap a 2-4 road trip. The next six games for the Bears are in Soldotna.
“It’s a big win going into a three-week homestand with a bye week,” Beauparlant said. “It goes a long way in getting things off on the right foot.”
