Getting a win on the road is never easy, but that's what the Bismarck Bobcats did on Saturday, defeating the Austin Bruins 2-1 to tie the Central Division Finals at one game a piece.

After dropping game one in overtime Friday night, the Bobcats needed to bounce back quickly and they did.

Austin's Jay Dickman opened up the scoring in the first period, but that would be the only time the Bruins would find the back of the net.

The Bobcats tied the game up in the third period when Huba Sekesi put it past Austin goalie Nick Lehr.

Stanislav Dzakhov gave the Bobcats the win with an unassisted goal at 7:11 in overtime.

The Bobcats return to the VFW Sports Center this Friday night for game three. The puck drops at 7:15.
