Joe Anderson scored two goals to pull the Alexandria Blizzard to a 5-5 tie in the third period Friday, but North Iowa scored a power play goal with three minutes remaining and buried an empty netter to pull out a 7-5 win.

North Iowa came into the game undefeated in 13 games, but the Blizzard made things interesting when they erased a 3-5 deficit in the third period.
