Huskies win in GP

The Huskies tonight played their first road game since December 13th when they were in Dawson Creek. It was a hard fought and well deserved 3 - 1 victory for the pups over the Grand Prairie Wheelers. Zach Blain didnt have a ton of work to do in net but the saves he had to make he made. The only goal that got past him was scored by Jeff McVey during a 5 on 3 powerplay for GP. Kole Norris had 2 goals and both were absolute roof jobs from the slot up under the bar. Dan Pappin also chipped in with a beauty snipe of his own. Seems like the Huskies might be starting to buy into the system and playing a lot better in their own zone with both the D and the forwards defending well and getting pucks out of the zone whenever they can. Brandan Smith has been playing very well of late and helped, along with Huskies player of the game Jon Spence, to make up for the absence of Payden Wongstedt. A similar effort tonight in Whitecourt will really go along way to helping the pups clinch 2nd spot in the NWJHL. The pregame show kicks off at 8:15.
