Shane McColgan scores in overtime as Saskatoon Blades down Kootenay Ice 3-2

CRANBROOK, B.C. - Shane McColgan scored in overtime as the Saskatoon Blades edged the Kootenay Ice 3-2 in Western Hockey League action on Friday.

Josh Nicholls had two goals for Saskatoon (7-9-0) in regulation time and assisted on the winner.

Erik Benoit and Jordyn Boyd scored for Kootenay (4-8-1).

McColgan skated out from behind the net and scored the winner as the Ice lost their fifth game in a row.

The Ice opened the scoring midway through the first period as Zach McPhee fed Boyd in the slot and he scored with a wristshot on the glove side. Last year both players played for Everett.

The Blades tied the game with short-handed breakaway goal by Nicholls.

Saskatoon took a 2-1 lead early in the second as Nicholls got his second of the game on a pass from Stransky.

Benoit stepped into a wristshot midway through the third to tie the game and force the extra period.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
