MOOSE JAW, Sask. - Mark McNeill scored the winning goal late in the third period as the Prince Albert Raiders edged the host Moose Jaw Warriors 3-2 on Wednesday in Western Hockey League action.

Sawyer Lange and Chance Braid also scored for the Raiders (16-7-2), who are just one point behind the Calgary Hitmen for top spot in the Eastern Conference Standings.

Sam Fioretti and Jordan Messier scored for Warriors (8-10-6), who have dropped back-to-back contests.

Luke Siemens stopped 29 shots for the win as Justin Paulic turned away 27 shots in a losing cause.

Prince Albert went 0-for-4 on the power play while Moose Jaw scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
