Brooks Maxwell's late goal helps Red Deer Rebels beat Swift Current Broncos 3-2

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Brooks Maxwell scored his first goal of the season late in regulation to lift the Red Deer Rebels to a 3-2 win over the host Swift Current Broncos in Western Hockey League play Tuesday.

Maxwell scored a power-play goal with 2:30 left in the third, stealing a game the Broncos had tied earlier in the period.

The Rebels (4-5-1) also had goals from rookie defenceman Haydn Fleury, with his first WHL goal, and Matt Bellerive.

Swift Current (3-1-4) replied with goals from rookie Tanner LeSann and Graham Black.

Rebels goaltender Patrik Bartosak stopped 29-of-31 shots. Broncos goalie Eetu Laurikainen allowed all three goals on 32 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
