The Green Bay Gamblers defeated the Lincoln Stars (11-19-7) by a 3-2 regulation mark Friday night at The Icebox in Lincoln, Neb. With the victory, Green Bay ran its regular-season record to 19-13-5 through 37 games, increasing its season points total to 43.

In his fourth start since returning from injury Jan. 5, Cam Hackett recorded a season-high 35 saves in the contest, although one of the two goals he allowed in the contest gave Lincoln a 1-0 advantage midway through the first period.

But behind the sticks of Matt Weis, Evan Tironese and Dawson Cook – who tallied their twelfth, sixth and eighth goals of the season, respectively, in the contest – the Gamblers stormed back to win their eighth road game of the season.

Green Bay will travel to Cedar Rapids (22-14-1) tomorrow night before returning home to the Resch Center Friday, Feb. 7 against Chicago.
