The Kenai River Brown Bears fell 5-2 to the host Minnesota Wilderness on Thursday in North American Hockey League action.
The loss is the fourth-straight for the Bears, with all of those defeats coming during the Midwest portion of a 13-game road swing.
The column got back on the winning side of things with a thoroughly boring 8-7-1 performance in week 14. Our season mark now sits at 111-95-2 against the spread. We have another weekend full of great games to throw darts at this week.
