There will be a game three in the West Division playoffs.

Granite City made sure of that by edging Alexandria 3-2 at the Runestone Community Center on Saturday night after scoring the game winner on a shorthanded goal. The Lumberjacks’ Taylor Brown got behind the defense and brought the puck toward the net from the left side. He carried it in front of the crease before sneaking it past Blizzard goalie Kyle Miller with five minutes, 42 seconds left in the game.
