VANCOUVER - The Saskatoon Blades scored three times in a four-minute span late in the third period en route to a 5-2 Western Hockey League win over the Vancouver Giants on Sunday.

Nick Zajac broke a 2-2 tie at 11:27 when he beat Vancouver’s Tyler Fuhr with a slapshot from the top of the circle. Matej Stransky connected on the power play with his second goal of the game at 15:25, and Duncan Siemens closed the scoring 12 seconds later.

Saskatoon opened a 2-0 lead in the first period with goals from Shane McColgan at 7:49, and by Stransky at 9:32.

The Giants tied the game in the second period with goals from Trevor Cheek at 14:14 on the power play, and by Anthony Ast at 18:01.

Andrey Makarov made 30 saves for Saskatoon (10-10-1), while Fuhr turned back 29 shots for Vancouver (7-15-0).

Quote of the Day

I'm hoping Bob [Murray] didn't go out and get Dany Heatley just to get someone. I'm sure he's excited and motivated.
