Special to the Review

The Arizona Sundogs held on for a 4-3 win over the Denver Cutthroats Saturday night at the Denver Coliseum, evening the series 1-1.

Only two minutes into the opening frame Alex Tuckerman and Phil Tesoriero received matching penalties for roughing.

Shortly after, Denver scored on a breakaway for the early lead.

With the extra attacker, Shawn Limpright lit the lamp halfway through the period with a feed from Mike Forney and Paul McIlveen to even things up.

With 11 seconds before killing off a penalty, Arizona found themselves down again when Denver received a lucky bounce of the puck after it found its way over the glove side of netminder Andrew Engelage.

Arizona bounced back in the second period scoring three unanswered goals giving them the lead after 40 minutes of play.

Midway through the second period Kevin Baker was sent off for a four minute double minor for high sticking.

While a man down, Alex Tuckerman scored a shorthanded goal with a pass from Maxwell equalizing the game.

Arizona posted two more goals less than a minute apart while playing 4-on-4 hockey. Justin Pender tallied the third goal with a feed from David Rutherford and Forney and then moments later Alex Velischek followed it up with the game winning goal from McIlveen and Cameron.

Hoping to come back in the third, Denver's Schwab tallied a power play goal after Maxwell was called for a two minute elbowing minor.

With 1:10 to go in the third the Cutthroats pulled their goalie, Kent Patterson. for the extra attacker, applying pressure but the Sundogs goalie covered it.

Engelage earned his fifth win of the post-season making 35 saves.

Each team tallied 38 shots on net. Arizona was unsuccessful on the power play with eight advantages and Denver was 2-6.

The series now shifts to Arizona for games on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 22 and 23, at Tim's Toyota Center in Prescott Valley.
