The Springfield Jr. Blues were unable to solve the Fairbanks Ice Dogs goaltender on Friday night at The Nelson Center, as they were shutout at home for only the second time this year losing 3-0.
Springfield was able to generate shots on the Fairbanks goaltender, outshooting the Ice Dogs 39-36 in the game, but could not light the lamp.
Springfield goaltender Mike Robinson was in goal for Springfield, stopping 33 of 36 Ice Dog shots.
