Lafayette, LA. (WHNT) - Even if you aren't a hockey fan, you have to admit these first two playoff games for the Huntsville Havoc have been excitingly dramatic.  Both victories happened because of game-winning overtime goals, by two players who had scored a total of five times before then.

The Havoc's first semifinal game of the best-of-three series against the Louisiana IceGators was the least dramatic of the three so far, and the game-winner happened with 2:39 remaining in regulation!

That's when Nick Lazorko found the back of the net to put the Havoc up 4-3.  Mike Gurtler would tally an empty net goal late, and the Huntsville Havoc win Game 1, 5-3.

Game 2 will happen at 7:30 Friday night at the VBC.  If a third game is needed, it will take place in Louisiana Saturday.
