Williams stops 31 shots as Spokane Chiefs defeat Saskatoon Blades 4-1

SASKATOON - Eric Williams turned away 30 of 31 shots as the Spokane Chiefs defeated the Saskatoon Blades 4-1 in Western Hockey League action on Wednesday.

Todd Fiddler, Liam Stewart, Blake Gal, and Mitch Holmberg scored for Spokane (21-7-1).

Matej Stransky scored Saskatoon's (13-14-1) lone goal in the loss.

Both teams were ineffective on special teams, as Spokane went 0-for-4 on the power play, while the Blades could not capitalize on six man-advantage opportunities.

Saskatoon's netminder Andrey Makarov accounted for 18 saves on 22 shots.

Spokane faces the Brandon Wheat Kings on the road on Friday. Saskatoon resumes their schedule on Saturday when they host the Regina Pats.

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.
