The English River Miners still have some work to do if they want to avoid playing in the Survivor Series.
The Miners erased a 3-1 deficit and stormed back for a 8-6 win over Minnesota Friday.
Jared Janke recorded a hat trick, while Dante Raposo scored a pair.
Michael Di Lullo, Jamie Driedger and Sidney Gladue added singles.
Michael Lenko came in relief to pick up the win.
The Miners didn't get any help though as the Thief River Falls Norskies hung on for a 4-3 win over Thunder Bay.
English River remains one point up on the fourth place Norskies with one game to go.
A Miners win Saturday in Thunder Bay would secure a Semi-Final berth.
A loss and a Thief River Falls win in Hoyt Lakes and the Norskies will finish third.
