Huskies win game 3

Game 3 was last night at the NPA and the Huskies showed just why their record was so good on home ice this season. The Huskies came out flying against Slave Lake and were dominating play in the offensive zone leading to goals from Cody Kalb, Dustin Heitman with a beauty backhand shelf job on a breakaway and Linden Apsassin that were sandwiched around a fluke goal from the Wolves that deflected off Cash Brinkworth and past Zach Blain. The second period was more of the same and by the time the score was 7 - 1 I was on my way out of the NPA as I was sick as a dog and wasn't in doubt about who would win the game. Kyle Porter scored in the second and Jordan Hartnell added one as well to give a goal to all 3 of the guys playing on the 4th line. Cody Hildebrand scored as did Kole Norris on his return to the lineup as the Huskies rolled to a 10 - 1 victory and a 2 games to 1 lead in the series. Cody Kalb fought Nick Plourde and won the Jon Zacks decision.

Game 4 is tonight at the NPA and the Huskies can clinch the series and set up a second round match-up with either Peace River if they win their series or the winner of Dawson Creek and Beaverlodge if Peace gets upset by the lodge.
