Sam MacNeill and Jonah Arbing sparked the Kensington Monaghan Farms Wild to a big bounce-back win on the road.
MacNeill scored two goals, Arbing made 26 saves and the Wild scored four unanswered third-period goals en route to a 5-2 victory over the Northern Moose at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre in Bathurst, N.B., on Sunday afternoon.
The contest was played less than 24 hours after the Wild gave up two power-play goals 25 seconds apart in the final minute of the third period in a 3-2 home-ice loss to the Moncton Flyers in a first-place showdown on Saturday night.
The Wild completed weekend play at 5-2-1 (won-lost-overtime losses) and the Flyers took a 6-1-0 record into Sunday afternoon’s road game in Fredericton against the Caps (4-3-0).
Austin Arsenault, Donovan Arsenault and Alex Graham added single goals for the Wild against Northern. Landon Clow (2), Kalib Snow and Matt McQuaid earned helpers.
William Schofield netted both goals for the Moose (3-3-1).
The teams were tied 1-1 after the first and second periods.
Overall, the Wild outshot the Moose 31-28.
The Moose will make a return trip to Kensington on Saturday. Puck drop at Credit Union Centre is set for 7:30 p.m.
