FAIRBANKS—The Fairbanks Ice Dogs made a two-goal deficit disappear quickly in the third period on Saturday night in Soldotna.

The Ice Dogs trailed the Kenai River Brown Bears 3-1 before scoring three times in 8 minutes, 24 seconds en route to a 7-3 North American Hockey League win and a 2-0 lead in the Ravn Alaska Cup.

Aaron McPheters, an Alaska Anchorage commit, got the Ice Dogs comeback started with his first goal of the season at 1:13 of the season. McPheters, from Anchorage, was assisted by Cayden Cahill and Tyler Tomberlin.
