In just his third game wearing a Traverse City uniform, Lance Fredrickson scored his first North Stars goal in a 1-0 road victory over Midwest Division leader Janesville on Friday.
Fredrickson -- acquired in a trade last week -- scored with 31 seconds left in the second period off Chris Waterstreet and Alex Taulien assists.
Playing in just his sixth game, goalie Zach Nagelvoort evened his record at 2-2-1 by stopping all 42 shots he faced. The Stars were outshot 42-20.
The Stars and Jets tangle again tonight at 8:05 p.m.
The win gives the North Stars a three-point cushion over Michigan in the North Division. The top four seeds make the playoffs.
