The Janesville Jets will return home one win away from advancing to the Robertson Cup finals.

Simon Sagissor scored in overtime Sunday as the Jets tipped the Fairbanks Ice Dogs 3-2 to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five Midwest Division Finals.

The series will shift to Janesville for Game 4 on Friday.

Janesville trailed 2-0 after two periods, but Sam Renlund continued his blistering scoring pace with two quick goals to tie the game with 17:18 remaining in regulation. The Colorado College commit leads the NAHL with seven playoff goals.

Jakov Novak assisted Sagissor for the game-winner 14:02 into the extra period.

The Jets have shown that anything can happen during the postseason. They need one more win to reach the Robertson Cup finals for the second straight year.
