The Steinbach Pistons scored three goals in the first 4:32 of the third period to tackle the Winnipeg Blues 5-1.
Steinbach brought their patented heavy shooting game early, scoring the opening goal and getting out to a 10-4 shot advantage quickly.
The Blues would get a response from Jake Dale to end the period tied at one, but the Blues were outshot 17-7 in the opening frame.
In the second, Joe Kraus went hard into the boards and left the game with an upper body injury.
The second period was more balanced, but the Pistons scored an early goal to take a one-goal lead into the dressing room.
Any chance of a comeback was shut down in a hurry – Steinbach potted a goal on the power play, at even strength, and short-handed in the opening five minutes to take control of the match
The Pistons picked up a 5-1 win for their seventh straight victory; goalie Andrew Blahy made 21 saves to pick up his first MJHL win in his first start.
The Blues and Pistons face off again tomorrow night at the RINK Training Centre. Puck drop is at 7:30 p.m.
