LAST GAME – 7-2 LOSS vs BRANDON: The Winnipeg ICE missed out on a chance to move seven points up on provincial-rivals the Brandon Wheat Kings with a 7-2 loss in the Wheat City on Remembrance Day. Winnipeg, coming in off a victory over Regina Saturday night, skated to a 0-0 first period in the third meeting of the season between the teams only to see things slip away in the second frame. Isaac Johnson’s team co-leading seventh of the season erased a 1-0 second period deficit, but the Wheaties soon exploded for four goals in less than six-and-half minutes to take charge. Mikey Milne notched his sixth of the year, and fifth in seven games, to move Winnipeg within three goals early in the third period but that’s as close as they’d get as the home team added two more to take a 2-1 lead in the season series. “They just out-battled us tonight,”said Milen post-game.“I think they won every 50/50 battle. We weren’t good enough tonight so we’ve got to clean that up.” Johnson’s goal was his third in the last two games and moved him into a tie with Michael Teply, Nino Kinder, and Brad Ginnell for tops on the team. Starter Jesse Makaj took the loss making 13 saves on 17 shots before giving way to Dean McNabb who finished with eight stops on 11 Brandon drives.
