With the win, New Mexico will now host game four of the series on Friday night at 6:30 p.m. at Outpost Ice Arenas.

As the Ice Wolves second round playoff series continues, New Mexico must win out to move on. The team is playing in a best-of-five series, meaning a third loss to the Brahmas would eliminate the Ice Wolves from the playoffs. A win in game four would mean a fifth and final game of the series to be played in Texas.
