The Stockton Thunder are still alive. Barely. Down 3-0 to the Las Vegas Wranglers in the third period, Stockton put up five goals to walk away with a thrilling 5-3 home win, avoid elimination and even up the Western Conference quarterfinal at three games apiece.
Harrison Reed made it 3-2 with 7:37 left on a power play goal before Garet Hunt tied the game, 3-3, near the five minute mark. After Daniel Gibb scored the go-ahead goal, Shawn Weller added an empty netter to make the final margin.
