Following a scoreless first period, the second really put the Huskies behind the eight-ball. The Blades managed to score four goals on the pups, two of those coming on the power-play, compared to just a single goal scored by Fort St. John’s Dayne Pedersen.

With the Huskies down 4-1 and needing a big three-goal third period, each team only managed to score once in the final frame, concluding the game 5-2 in favour of the hometown Blades. The lone goal scorer in the third for Fort St. John was Tyler Norris, who scored his eighth goal of the year Friday.  

Special teams played a part in last night's game, as the Huskies allowed two goals while short-handed, and going 0-for-7 on the power-play.

It was a busy night in net for Huskies goaltender Ty Gullickson, who faced 46 shots Friday, compared to the 37 fired by Fort St. John.

With the loss, the Huskies, Vipers and Blades all sit tied for sixth in the NWJHL standings with 16 points.

If the Huskies want to stay out of the league basement, they will need to earn two points Saturday versus the Dawson Creek Jr. Canucks, as Sexsmith and Beaverlodge play each other Saturday evening as well, guaranteeing one of the teams two points.

Saturday’s game in Dawson Creek begins at 8 p.m. and you can catch all the live action on 100.1 Moose FM.
