EJ Paddington, second from left, of the Thunder Bay North Stars, searches for the loose puck against Dryden GM Ice Dogs goaltender Eric Clark and Dryden’s Jordan Pfoh during Game 6 of the Superior International Junior Hockey League semifinal series on Wednesday at Fort William Gardens. Nikolas Campbell scored a natural hat trick as the North Stars exploded for five unanswered goals in the second period en route to a 5-2 win and forced a seventh and deciding game on Thursday night. Sam Skillestad added two goals and Jamie Fuchs dished out three assists. Winning goaltender Keenan Marks made 21 saves. Max Roby scored both goals for the Ice Dogs, who led the series 3-1 before Thunder Bay won in Dryden on Tuesday and again at the Gardens Wednesday. Game 7 will be played in Dryden where a trip to the league final against the Kam River Fighting Walleye will be on the line.
