WHAT. A. GAME.
A beauty of a goal from Nathan Hillis, assisted by Behun and Ladyman seals the deal to take it 3-2 in overtime.
Despite more shots on goal, the Blues couldn’t buy a point throughout the first of couple periods.
With just over three minutes left in the third, the Blues’ captain Kelton Sutherland put the Blues on the board with a little help from Behun and Arkle.
Just a short 20 seconds later, import Coby Stauss from East Grand Forks, MN followed up with another goal to tie it at 2-2. Ladyman and Foreman were credited with the assists.
Incredible goaltending efforts at both ends of the ice kept a low score in this matchup. Both the Blues’ Jeremy Link and Winkler’s Riley Morgan were outstanding between the pipes.
Winkler held onto the puck for the majority of the first period. Kyle Lang scored just over three minutes into the game with Ally and Lacasse picking up assists.
After some scrappy play in front of the Blues’ net, the Flyers put away their second goal of the night. It was Colton Harder with an assist from Lang.
The Blues’ record improves to 2-1-0 on the season, while the Flyers fall to 2-0-1. Blues play again at home on Sunday against the Dauphin Kings. Puck drop is at 6:30 p.m.
