Blades Fall 7-4 to Canes

The Blades got off to an early start as they jumped ahead of the Hurricanes 4-1 before the mid way point of the 2nd period.  Jyri Niemi, Ondrej Fiala (PP), Teigan Zahn, and Colton Gillies (PP) all scored for the Blades.  Niemi's goal was his 4th in 3 games, giving him 13 goals on the season.

r

Saskatoon's 4 goals on 12 shots chased Hurricanes netminder Michael Maniago from the net, who was replaced by Juha Metsola.  The change seemed to spark the Hurricanes as they stormed back with 3 goals in the 2nd period and another 3 goals in the 3rd.  Hurricane goal scorers on the night were Carter Bancks, Colton Sceviour (PP), Zach Boychuk (3 – PP, ES, PP), Dwight King, and Mitch Fadden.  Boychuk and Sceviour would each go on to have 4 point nights.

r

All four goaltenders dressed for the game saw action between the pipes.  For the Blades, Braden Holtby stopped 16 of 22 shots before being replaced by Garrett Zemlak who allowed 1 goal on 5 shots in relief.  For the Hurricanes, Maniago, as previously mentioned, was pulled after allowing 4 goals on 12 shots.  Metsola replaced Maniago with 4:01 gone in the 2nd period and would make 26 saves on 26 shots en route to being named the games 2nd star.

r

The Blades power play was 2 for 7 on the night while their penalty kill allowed 3 goals against on 6 opportunities.
