But the Lakers couldn’t break through for the tying tally, losing 4-3.

DL goalie MacKenzie Steele had 22 saves.

The Lakers held a 2-1 lead after the first period on a pair of Richards’ goals, one a power play score, but the Panthers countered with a goal in the first period by Connor Kennedy (power play).

A decisive second period notched three goals by the Panthers (2-1-0), from Luke Jaeger, Bailey Mueller and Kennedy.

Park Rapids outshot DL 11-9 in the second period.

Steele recorded his first shutout of the season against Prairie Centre, snuffing out 20 shots.
