SASKATOON - Patrik Bartosak stopped 32-of-35 shots as the Red Deer Rebels defeated the host Saskatoon Blades 5-3 on Wednesday in Western Hockey League action.

Brandon Underwood, Cory Millette, Joel Hamilton, Tyson Ness and Matt Dumba all scored for the Rebels (2-3-1), who have picked up at least one point in each of their last three games after starting the season with back-to-back losses, while Matt Bellerive chipped in with three assists.

Darren Dietz, Dalton Thrower and Nick Zajac each had a goal for the Blades (2-3-0), who have dropped three of their last four contests.

Andrey Makorov made 24 saves in a losing effort for Saskatoon.

Red Deer went 2-for-8 on the power play while Saskatoon scored once on seven chances with the man advantage.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.
