Brayden Foreman had a four-point night, and the Winnipeg Blues scored three power play goals to get a 4-1 win over the Winkler Flyers.
Foreman got things going for Winnipeg on the Blues second power play in the first five minutes. He put a beautiful wrister over Dylan Meilun’s right shoulder to open the scoring. The Blues are undefeated when scoring first this season.
Mathieu Moreira would extend the Blues lead with another power play goal, putting a rebound in after the puck hopped off the back glass into the crease.
Penalties were a big problem for the Flyers all night. They gave the Blues 12 power play opportunities, the most Winnipeg has had all season.
The Flyers were able to get within one early in the third, but Foreman and Josiah Vanderhooft answered back to guide the Blues back into the win column.
Winkler’s loss snaps the four-game winning streak they built up against the Winnipeg Freeze.
The two teams meet again in Winkler on Saturday, October 30, with a 7:30 puck drop.
