Prince Albert, SK – The Saskatoon Blades were in Prince Albert tonight to take on the Raiders in the first of a back-to-back pre-season series.
In the first frame, the Raiders would open the scoring to make it 1-0. In the second however, the Blades would score two goals in under two minutes thanks to consecutive penalties by Prince Albert. Tanner Molendyk would play the puck low to a wide open Trevor Wong, who would burry it in close on the 5-on-3. The Blades would continue the scoring on the 5-on-4, where Vaughn Watterodt tapped in the rebound on the door step to take the lead at 2-1. Spencer Shugrue would add a goal for himself to extend the lead to 3-1 heading into the third.
In the third period, the Raiders would score two to even it up at 3-3 and send the game into the first overtime of the pre-season for the Blades. Just over a minute into overtime, Lukas Hansen would bat the puck out of the air to win the game 4-3.
