Conner Lemieux made 30 saves to earn the win in nets for Thunder Bay, while Zac MacDonald and Eric Clark split duties in the Ice Dogs net.

Kam River 5, Sioux Lookout 2: After being blanked at home on Friday night, the Kam River Fighting Walleye found themselves down 1-0 after one on Saturday night, but rebounded to knock off the expansion Bombers. Jeremy Dunmore had a pair of goals and an assist for the Fighting Walleye, with singles going to Ryan Doucette, MacKenzie Sedgwick, who scored the winner 8:11 into the third), and Alex Oviedo, into the empty net. Blake Burke and Alex Lucas scored for the Bombers.
