The Saskatoon Blades continue to roll along, even if they can't seem to hold a late lead.
The Blades went into the third period against Kootenay last night up 3-1.
But, the Ice fought back.
First Kevin King scored at 3:55, shorthanded, to cut the lead to 3-2.
Then, it was Jesse Ismond with his 2nd of the game at 12:15 to even the game up.
But, Marek Viedensky once again showed his flare for the dramatic. The San Jose Sharks property scored a goal with 2:07 to play, putting the Blades back out in front.
Jake Trask would hit the empty net to ice the Ice, making the final 5-3.
It's Saskatoon's 46th win of the year, matching their total from all of last year. They still have 13 games remaining in their season.
Brayden Schenn added 2 powerplay goals for the Blades. Chris Collins also scored on the powerplay as the Blades were 3 for 7 overall. The Ice were 1 for 3 on the man advantage.
It was also a fight filled game.
Lukas Sutter took on Drew Czerwonka in the 2nd period. During that same stoppage in play, Matt Fraser jumped Duncan Siemens. The two fought, and were both tossed per WHL rules.
Saskatoon spent the night on the bus following the game, arriving in Medicine Hat this morning at 5 AM Saskatchewan time.
That game goes at 6:00 local time, 7:00 Saskatchewan time tonight.
Don't be shocked if Adam Morrison starts in goal for the Blades.
