The Saskatoon Blades remain perfect at home after another win tonight, this time against the visiting Moose Jaw Warriors.
It was a game filled with bouncing pucks, turnovers and overall sloppy play, but Saskatoon came away with a 6-4 win.
Saskatoon led the game 4-2 heading into the third before the Warriors struck twice early in the period to knot the game at 4.
The game remained deadlocked until the final minute.
Braeden Johnson, who filled in for injured Josh Nicholls on the top line, tried to set up a streaking Curtis Hamilton with under 30 seconds to go. The scoring chance failed but Hamilton was able to send the puck back to the point where a waiting Stefan Elliott had a ton of time to release a rocket of a slapshot past Warriors goalie Thomas Heemskerk. With 20 seconds remaining on the clock, the Blades were out in front for good 5-4.
Darian Dziurzynski would add the empty netter for his hattrick, to make the final 6-4. That's 5 goals in the last 2 games for Z, and he is truly providing the secondary offense this team needed.
Saskatoon moves to 6-1 with the win, with Moose Jaw falling to 2-5. Saskatoon is also unbeaten at home, sitting at 5-0.
Next up for the Blades, a game one week from tonight in Red Deer.
