Anchorage, Alaska – The Las Vegas Wranglers find themselves in a hole after dropping the first two games in the opening round of the ECHL Western Conference quarterfinals playoff series with the Alaska Aces.
Friday night Alaska outscored Las Vegas 5-1 in the playoff opener. Saturday night was more competitive but still found the Wranglers on the losing end of a 3-1 game; the final goal courtesy of a vacant net.
The series now shifts back to Las Vegas for games three, four and (if necessary) five. The winner of this series will move on to the conference semi-finals to face the Colorado Eagles or Idaho Steelheads.
