Post Game Report Presented by McDonalds Canada | ICE Earn 6-3 Victory Over Warriors

The ICE looked to make it four in a row as they faced-off against the Moose Jaw Warriors on Wednesday evening. Wins against Prince Albert, Regina, and Saskatoon have the ICE looking to make it five wins in their last six games. Moose Jaw has won their last two games as well, with an impressive win over the Saskatoon Blades followed by a shootout win against the host Regina Pats. Gage Alexander starts for the ICE after recording his first career WHL shutout against the Raiders. Brett Mirwald got the nod for the Warriors.

Winnipeg received a 5-on-3 halfway through the first frame as Moose Jaw got called for hooking and delay of game, just three seconds apart. Peyton Krebs would make them pay as he scored an almost identical goal to last night, as the ICE captain ripped a high shot past Mirwald’s blocker from the top of the right circle. The ICE would capitalize on the remaining penalty as Connor McClennon picked up the rebound from an Owen Pederson shot and buried it past Mirwald. Winnipeg wouldn’t be done there as Zach Benson picked up a rebound from an Anson McMaster shot and backhanded it past Mirwald for the ICE’s third goal in just 1:51. Cole Muir put the ICE up by four after finding yet another rebound laying in the blue paint, after Michael Milne fired a shot net front. The Warriors would get one back as Jagger Firkus snapped a shot past Alexander’s glove side, ending the ICE goalie’s shutout streak at 104:21. Josh Hoekstra would gather the assist on the goal that came at 14:09. The Warriors would trim the lead to two on the power-play as Tate Popple took a shot from the slot that then hit a skate in front and re-directed straight to Denton Mateychuk who rifled it high past Alexander. That would finish off a busy period in which the ICE led 17-13 in the shot category.

Things settled down in the second, as the Warriors would get the period’s only goal as Atley Calvert made it a one goal game as he beat Alexander just over the left pad with under two minutes left in the frame. ICE continued to lead in shots, by a score of 27-26 after two.

As the Warriors searched for the tying goal, Calder Anderson got called for boarding and the ICE would add to their lead on the power play as Jakin Smallwood scored with a wrist shot from the slot. Pederson and Krebs would draw the assists on the eventual insurance goal that came at 15:59 in the third. McClennon would add an empty net goal as the ICE battled to their fourth straight win. Moose Jaw finished with the 36-31 lead in the shot category.

The ICE will have two days off before playing again on Saturday against the Prince Albert Raiders. Puck drop for that one is at 5:00 pm CT.
