SASKATOON - Braden Holtby turned aside 25 shots for his third shutout of the season as the Saskatoon Blades blanked the Lethbridge Hurricanes 3-0 in WHL action Thursday night.

Curtis Hamilton, Walter Wintoneak and Travis Toomey had goals for the Blades (27-11-2-0), who have won two straight.

Brandon Anderson made 29 saves for the Hurricanes (20-18-0-2), who are winless in five.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
