Friday night at the Green Island Ice Arena, the Magicians scored four goals (Scheerer, Weiand, Kirkendall, and Stanton) but fell in overtime. Andrew McGlynn scored 1:17 into OT for the Chill to give them the 5-4 victory.

With the 3-point weekend, the Magicians take over sole possession of third place in the Midwest Division! The Magi are now 24-19-7 (55 points) with ten games to go in the regular season.
