For the first time this season, the Saskatoon Blades swept a back to back. The Blades pulled off a 5-3 comeback win over Moose Jaw Sunday night.
Jordan Henderson slapped home the game-winner from the top of the circle. The goal is just the second regular season marker in the veteran defenceman’s career.
“He can shoot whenever he wants,” said Blades head coach Dean Brockman.
Lukus MacKenzie scored twice for the Blades, including the tying goal early in the third period.
“Our line was going tonight and frankly a good effort from everyone tonight,” MacKenzie said post game. Braylon Shymr and Kolten Olynek had the other goals for the Blades.
The victory comes on the heels of a shock 2-1 OT win over the Regina Pats. The Blades are winners of three of their last four games, taking points from the top two teams in their division.
“It’s a big week ahead of us playing Edmonton and Brandon, two teams we are chasing (in the standings) so hopefully this carries over,” Head coach Dean Brockman said.
Brock Hamm picked up the win in goal, making 29 saves on 32 shots. After a tough start to the season, Hamm has victories in his last two starts.
“It’s been black and white start but I think things are starting to click and the bounces are going our way.” said Hamm.
The Blades now focus their attention on a pair of meaningful games. They host Edmonton Wednesday before visiting Brandon on Friday. They trail both teams by two points in the standings.
