The Kootenay ICE and Calgary Hitmen would need overtime for a second straight game Wednesday.
And for the second consecutive contest Kootenay would top Calgary in the extra frame by a score of 4-3.
Kootenay took a 3-2 lead into the final period of regulation, but allowed the equalizer with just over two minutes left.
It would take forward Peyton Krebs just 90 seconds to assume the role of OT hero as he buried a rebound past Hitmen netminder goalie Nick Schneider to secure the two points.
ICE puck stopper Duncan McGovern turned aside 20 shots for his sixth win of the season.
Forward Colton Keloso led the march with two first period goals, and Cameron Hausinger added another marker in the second.
Kootenay has now won three straight against the Hitmen putting eight points between itself and the divisional rival.
The two teams will conclude a series of four consecutive games against each other in Calgary Thursday.
The victory came after a pair of transacations for the ICE Wednesday.
The club shipped forward Jeff de Wit to the Victoria Royals in exchange for a 2019 sixth round draft pick.
They also acquired 17 year old forward Bradley Ginnell from the Portland Winterhawks for a 2018 second round draft pick and a 2019 third round draft pick.
The ICE head up to Edmonton after their match with Calgary for a date with the Oil Kings Saturday.
Kootenay then returns to Western Financial Place for a New Year’s Day matinee versus Medicine Hat Monday.
