Matt McLeod scored in his 100th game with the Winnipeg Blues to help his team edge the Selkirk Steelers 3-2

Ryan Ostermann opened the scoring for Winnipeg, giving him goals in three straight games against his former team. Eric Fawkes picked up an assist on the goal, getting his 50th point in his first game back from injury.

Winnipeg scored on their lone power play of the game in the second period, with Josiah Vanderhooft patiently firing home a wrist shot to put the Blues up by two.

In the second half of the second, the Blues put together some of their most impressive penalty killing all year, giving the Steelers virtually no looks when Selkirk had two full minutes of five-on-three time. Selkirk finished the second 0/4 on the power play.

On the Steelers first power play of the third, Jordan Hughesman extended his point streak to 12 games with a blast into the back of the net to make it a one-goal game. However, only 43 seconds later, Matt McLeod potted a rebound to put Winnipeg back up by two with his second goal of the season.

Selkirk would come back within one, but the Blues shut it down from there and pulled away with the two points

Winnipeg and Selkirk face off for the final time this season tomorrow night at the Seven Oaks Sportsplex at 7:00 p.m. Winnipeg has won four of the seven games so far between these two teams.
