Rockford- The Rockford IceHogs needed to pick up some points this weekend to stay in the playoff race. The IceHogs beat the Iowa Wild 3-2 Saturday night. Rockford trailed the Wild 1-0 heading into the second period. Phillip Danault setup Pierre-Marc Bouchard for his ninth goal of the season to even the score at 1-1.

Brisebois scored a goal before the end of the second period off a cross-ice pass from Terry Broadhurst. Jason LaBarbera was in the goal and stopped 23 of 25 shots to earn the win.
