Fargo Force comeback to win 7-6

If you counted the Force out of this game when it was 6-3 after the 2nd period, you haven't been following Force hockey at all this year.  The Force have came back from a ton of games this year and maybe after this one, you will start believing in the phrase, "never count the Fargo Force out of a hockey game".

The Force used a 4 goal 3rd period to comeback from a 6-3 deficit to defeat the Sioux Falls Stampede 7-6 for a 2-0 opening round series lead.  I don't think there is any question that Chase Grant is deserving of the "player of the game" award if there ever was one.  If you need more reasons than him having two goals and one assist then how about the game-winning goal or the hard work that drew the penalty that resulted in a power play goal to tie the game 6-6... just to name a few big factors.  Yeah, I think that is deserving of a player of the game award.  Chase Grant displayed every reason why he is the captain of this hockey team.

Fargo was also led by Corey Leivermann, my 2nd star of the game, with two goals and an assist including the game-tying goal on the power play.  Matt Leitner had a goal and an assist and a team-leading +3 for my 3rd star of the game.  There were a number of other players that made a big impact in the game.  Brian Cooper had a couple of huge hits that probably helped sway momentum in Fargo's favor.  Nate Condon had a goal and an assist.  Oleg Yevenko had a big goal early in the third to give the Force hope.

The Force overcame a lot of adversity in the game to come back for a 7-6 victory and a 2-0 series lead.  Hope to see a lot of people at tomorrow's game.

The game was amazing! We were worried early on, those Force players really came together to show how hockey is supposed to be played. Way to go. Can't wait for Sat nights game.
