The biggest storyline of the game was the debut of hometown boy Brayden Schenn.
But, the Blades second line did a great job stealing all of his thunder.
The line of Chris Collins-Marek Viedensky-Josh Nicholls combined for 4 of the Blades 5 goals as they beat the Hitmen 5-1.
Calgary came out of the gates hot outshooting Saskatoon 15-7 through 20 minutes, and leading 1-0 after a goal from Brooks Macek.
Saskatoon got their legs back under them to start the second following a week long break. Chris Collins score on the powerplay at 1:24 to even the score.
At 9:07 Marek Viedensky put the Blades out in front as he hit an empty net after goalie Michael Snider was sent sprawling after being bumped by Josh Nicholls on a partial breakaway.
The Blades ended the 2nd period on a high with Jake Trask scoring to make it 3-1. Schenn had an assist on the goal, his first point as a Blade and 5th point in 3 WHL games this year.
The Blades kept the pedal to the metal in the third period with Viedensky and Collins each scoring again.
Josh Nicholls had 3 assists in the win, giving the top line 8 points in total in the game.
The Blades PK went 6 for 6 while their PP was 1 for 4.
Steven Stanford made 27 saves, including 14 in a very busy first period.
Saskatoon now has a pair of days off before playing the Hitmen again on Tuesday night in Calgary. They will enjoy the bus trip to Alberta tomorrow and take in the Flames-Predators game tomorrow night in Calgary. They also play in Edmonton on Wednesday night.
Other notes: Alex Elliott drew into the lineup after Levi Bews was scratched due to an expected case of pinkeye.
