MOOSE JAW, Sask. - Dylan Bredon scored at 1:13 of overtime Sunday as the Medicine Hat Tigers defeated the Moose Jaw Warriors 3-2 in the Western Hockey League.

Boston Leier came out from behind the Warriors' net in the extra period and found Bredo in front for the game winner.

"We pulled ahead in the third and unfortunately couldn't hold on," Tigers head coach and general manager Shaun Clouston said. "I thought the last few minutes, we played well and we didn't panic and made sure we got the one point."

Bredo added a goal in regulation for Medicine Hat (8-8-1), while Curtis Valk also scored. Cam Lanigan made 28 saves to get the win.

Justin Kirsch, with a goal and an assist, and Sam Fioretti replied for Moose Jaw (7-6-3).

Justin Paulic made 25 saves in taking the loss.

Tied 1-1 after two periods, Bredo scored his first of the night at 5:44 of the third on a shot that beat Paulic between the pads.

But Fioretti tied it up on the power play for Moose Jaw at 12:25.

"You get into overtime and anything can happen. Obviously, it wasn't the result we were looking for — a couple missed assignments in our zone," Warriors head coach Mike Stothers said. "It is a matter of looking at the positives and we got a point."

Medicine Hat finished the night 0-for-5 on the power play, while Moose Jaw wound up 1-for-4.

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.
