Nate Thompson had a whale of a game, registering three points, and former Lightning netminder Gerald Coleman  turned aside twenty-four of twenty-six shots for Alaska as they won their third-straight while pounding Stockton. Thompson scored his first goal just fifteen seconds into the match before padding the Aces lead to 6-1 with just a few minutes remaining in regulation. Coleman, who has won both starts he has made for the Aces, is currently sporting a 1.50 GAA and .946 SV%. Joey Crabb, Alaska's leading scorer, added two primary assists to run his season totals to eight goals and thirteen assists. Alaska (14-5-0, 28 PTS), alone at the top of the Western conference's Mountain division, continues its road swing with a Friday matchup against Bakersfield (5-7-2, 23 PTS).
