The Dryden GM Ice Dogs are also on the road this weekend. They hammered the Iron Rangers in Minnesota 7-2 last night.
Dryden scored three in the first, then slipped into cruise control for the second.
With the score 4-2 after 40 minutes, the Ice Dogs put on the after-burners for a 7-2 final.
Malcom Huemmert's goal stood up as the game-winner. Jacob Gnidziejko played all 60 minutes for the win.
They'll play the rematch tonight in Minnesota, then visit the English River Miners Tuesday.
Thief River comes for a visit to the Dog Pound on Feb. 18, and it'll be a 3:30 p.m. puck drop.
With about a month left in the regular season, the Ice Dogs trail the league-leading Norskies by three points, although Thief River has a game in hand.
