Defenceman Morgan Rielly scores winner as Warriors beat slumping Giants 2-1

VANCOUVER - Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Morgan Rielly scored late in the third period to give the Moose Jaw Warriors a hard-fought 2-1 win on Wednesday over the Vancouver Giants in Western Hockey League action.

The Moose Jaw defenceman, from nearby West Vancouver, scored off his own rebound from a tight angle at 15:09 of the third period to give the Warriors (10-11-7) their second win in a row.

Fellow defenceman Kendall McFaull scored his first goal of the season for Moose Jaw on the power play at 18:30 of the opening period to tie the game 1-1.

Tristan Sieben opened the scoring for Vancouver (7-18-0) with a wrap-around goal at the 3:20 mark.

It was one of only two shots on goal by the Giants in the first period, even though they had two power-play opportunities.

The Warriors had 14 shots in the period, and lived up to their billing as the seventh-best power-play team in the WHL when a seemingly innocuous long-range shot from McFaull squeezed between the goalie's legs.

Vancouver lost its fifth in a row despite a fine evening from goaltender Payton Lee, who made 32 saves.

His Moose Jaw counterpart Justin Paulic only had to make 15 saves.

The Warriors went 1 for 5 with the man advantage while the Giants were 0 for 4.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
