The Janesville Jets will spend another night on the road.
Jack Berry stopped all 36 shots sent his way, and the Soo Eagles avoided a sweep in the NAHL North finals with a 4-0 victory over the Jets on Friday night.
Game 4 is tonight in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan.
The shutout loss ended a nine-game winning streak for the Jets and a 29-game winning streak for goalie Matt Jurusik, who allowed three goals on 30 shots. Jurusik hadn't lost a game since Nov. 22.
Trevor Cope scored twice for Soo, while Bruno Birzitis and Sandis Zolmanis had two assists apiece.
Janesville will attempt to finish off the best-of-five series tonight on the road, hoping to avoid a Game 5 at the Janesville Ice Arena on Monday night.
