Scott Cuthrell and Nick Belger had two goals each Saturday night to lead the Soo Eagles to a 4-1 win over the Jets in a pivotal NAHL North Division game.
Janesville (16-19-2) is now seven points behind Springfield for the sixth and final playoff spot.
The Jets’ Adam Winborg tied the game at 1-1 with a goal at 10:22 of the second period, but Cuthrell got his second goal of the game to give the Eagles the lead for good at 12:49 of the second.
Brock Kautz suffered the loss in goal despite 35 saves.
Game two of the three-game series is today.
