Blades Win In Shoot-out

Andrey Makarov started for the Blades in net. Saskatoon built up a 3-1 lead at one point. Medicine Hat is a fast team with some offensive weapons like Emerson Etem.

The Blades I thought were still playing sloppy which caused them to give up the lead.

The Tigers tied up the game,and did forced a shoot-out.

The Blades scored 2 times in the shoot-out. They won 4-3.

Their next game is on friday against the Calgary Hitmen. The Blades are 1 win away from tying or breaking the record of most consecutive wins on home ice. Saskatoon continues to lead the WHL in points.

2 WIns This Weekend.

Finally back from Alberta. I had an awesome time! The game was a goal fest with 11 goals being scored. Saskatoon played kinda sloppy throughout.

The Defence needs to step up and not allow so many shot Makarov is going to be worn out if he continues to see so many games in a row and see so much rubber.

Lukas Sutter has really improved and showed that with 2 goals tonight.

The Blades won 6-5. Saskatoon has 3 games next week. Tuesday,Friday and Saturday. Saskatoon is also the top team in the WHL right now.
