The Yorkton Terriers snapped a three game losing streak, while handing the Estevan Bruins their first loss at Spectra Place, 4-1 on Tuesday.
Jeremy Johnson led the Terriers with a pair of goals, while Jamie Vlanich and Riley Paterson had the others. At least I was pretty sure Paterson banged in a rebound to make it 3-1... although the website says Zak Majkowski.
Kale Thomson made his first Junior 'A' start, and looked more than comfortable, stopping 37 of 38 shots against the highest scoring team in the Sherwood.
Voice of the Bruins Blaine Weyland tells me I'm just the second visiting Play-by-Play guy to do a game at Spectra Place (I believe Darryl Skender was the first)... well let me tell the rest of you guys you're in a for a treat if you're heading to the Showcase this weekend.
It's nothing short of pro... especially the view from the booth. Makes for an easy broadcast from such a vantage point. I'm there three more times this month and can't wait!
It was a banner night for the Yorkton Harvest program, as I counted 8 Harvest alumni, including Denin Boesch who was scratched for Estevan. That also includes Thomson, and the only Bruin to beat him, Ben Johnstone (who was also kind enough to be my first intermission guest).
You can see all these former Harvest players in action tonight (WED), as they meet again at Farrell Agencies Arena.
The Melville Millionaires picked up their third straight win, but almost let one slip away against Kindersley.
The Mils led the Klippers 3-1 in the third period, and watched the Klippers come back.
Lucas Froese scored with 1:07 remaining in OT, and the Mils won 4-3 (OT).
Ian McNulty had 1g-1a for the Mils, while Mark Owen scored twice.
Alex Wakaluk won again, making 34 saves, as the Millionaires out-shot the Klippers 49-37.
The Mils look to push that winning streak to 4 as they visit the Weyburn Red Wings tonight (TUE) (7:30 on GX94).
