SASKATOON - Matej Stransky scored at 1:16 of overtime Wednesday as the Saskatoon Blades defeated the Tri-City Americans 3-2 in the Western Hockey League.

Josh Nicholls scored twice in regulation for Saskatoon (5-7-0), while Andrey Makarov made 26 saves. Stransky also had an assist.

Lucas Nickles and Connor Rankin each had a goal and an assist for Tri-City (7-3-2).

Eric Comrie made 31 saves in taking the loss.

The Blades finished the night 0-for-5 on the power play, while the Americans wound up scoreless on four chances.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
