The last 1:30 ended with three goals scored as the Bay City Wolves outlasted Saginaw Heritage (5-10, 3-3).
Leading 2-1, with 48 seconds left, Bay City scored an empty-net goal to all but seal the win for the Wolves.
However, Saginaw's Trevor Bremer scored 10 seconds later to get within one, but Saginaw could not score another goal to force overtime.
"It was a scoring barrage to end the game," Saginaw coach JJ Bamburger said. "We had a lot of opportunities, we just didn't capitalize on them."
According to Bamburger, there were at least three breakaway opporutunites Saginaw could not score on.
"It was a tight checking game, they bottled up a lot of the zone," Bamburger said. "The game could have gone either way."
Nick Nauro scored Saginaw's first goal earlier in the third period.
Bamburger said Bay City's go-ahead goal came out of no where as the puck was redirected on its way to the net.
"It looked like a harmless play, but they ended up scoring," he said.
