The Brandon Wheat Kings started the game exactly the way they wanted to and they scored 3 goals to go up 3-0. The Blades did not play dead either they scored two goals of their own,and penalties was the Blades problem early on.
The Blades did a pretty good job of shutting down the Wheat Kings offensive weapons,and yes there are many weapons on that Wheat Kings team.
Sena Acolatse was one of the best defenders for the Blades tonight but I think the winner this game was Sam Klassen. He threw the hardest body check of the game and was the hardest working player,chipped in with an assist and was the games 1st star.
When the Blades were down and out they found a way as a team to battle back. Randy McNaught showed some offensive promise by taking the puck to the net a couple of times and directing some decent shots on goal.
Darian Dzuirynski was all over the score sheet and a very effective player tonight tallying a goal and an assist as well as 6 minutes in penalties. He was named the 2nd star of the game tonight.
I thought each player showed what they can do on the ice and together that helped the Blades get the win. Steven Stanford played great in net making big saves.
The final score was 6-4 for the Blades.
The Blades and Wheat Kings are now tied at 88 points each.
Randy McNaught will face his former team on Tuesday and former Blade Jamie Crooks will do the same as the Chilliwack Bruins are touring the East Division.
