What Moose Jaw took away last Sunday, the Warriors gave back to the Saskatoon Blades Wednesday.
Moose Jaw edged Calgary 4-3 Wednesday, leaving the Hitmen two points ahead of the Bridge City Bunch for the final playoff spot in the W-H-L's Eastern Conference. Both teams have nine games remaining going into tonight...the Double Blue at home to Kootenay and Calgary in Brandon. Blades' centre Logan Christensen is thankful to the Warriors.
“That was big for Moose Jaw to beat Calgary. We are still two points behind them so this weekend is going to be huge for us.”
Saskatoon's power play has gone cold oh-for its last-13 chances. Christensen says there's a solution.
“Just getting more shots through. They don’t have to be big one timers or slap shots just getting them through not hitting any bodies, and I think if we can do that we will get a few more goals.”
The broadcast of the Blades and ICE will be on 92.9 THE BULL at 6:30 with the play-by-play at 7:05 from SaskTel Centre.
