Waterloo Black Hawks 0 @ Green Bay Gamblers 2
Ryan McKay stopped all 22 shots he faced and Alex Broadhurst scored the game-winner as the Green Bay Gamblers evened the Clark Cup Final series with a 2-0 victory in Game Two over the Waterloo Black Hawks.
Chances were limited throughout the contest as both McKay and Stephon Williams of Waterloo continued their brilliant postseason play and kept the game scoreless through nearly 47 minutes of game action. Alex Broadhurst broke the scoreless stretch when he batted in his League-leading eighth goal of the playoffs. The puck had deflected in the air and whacked the floating puck past Williams to give Green Bay their first lead in the series.
Waterloo pulled their goaltender in favor of the extra attacker but the Gamblers defense and McKay stood strong. Alex Kile would put the finishing touches on the game when he buried an empty net goal. It was the second USHL career shutout for McKay.
Green Bay kept their winning ways following a loss as they have not lost back-to-back games all season. The series now shifts to Waterloo where the Black Hawks have won 15 straight dating back to the regular season.
