Blues are in the Win Column

The Blues secured their first win of the season in a high scoring 8 to 5 victory over the visiting Neepawa Natives Wednesday eve at the Ice Plex.

Joel MacGillivray (Mutch and Keane assisting) opened the scoring early in the game however the Natives stormed back when the boys found themselves in a bit of penalty trouble. Matt Leblanc (MacGillivray and Keane) evened things up on a Blues power play midway through the first.

Then it was the Dexter Kuczek and Dallas Tulik show as the two players both scored hat tricks enroute to the win. Adam Derochie got the start stopping 23 of the 28 shots he faced. The Blues fired 49 shots at the Neepawa net keeping a pair of Natives goalies very busy. Other notables on the point parade for the Blues were James McIsaac with a trio of assists and Michael Forseth with a pair of assists. 

Next action is Friday Sept 30th at 7 pm at the Ice Plex when the Winkler Flyers come for a visit.
