Alexandria put up three goals in the first period for the second straight night. The Blizzard's Tyler Sworsky, Ian Ecklund and Nate Mettenburg all scored in the first frame to give Alexandria a 3-0 lead. The Whalers answered with two of their own before the end of the period, but it was never quite enough to come all the way back. Joe Anderson and Mick Dhein added a goal apiece in the third period to help the Blizzard put Wisconsin away.

Evan Bisek got the win for Alexandria in net. He stopped 25 shots. The Blizzard improved to 6-2 with the two wins over the weekend.
