VANCOUVER - Eetu Laurikainen stopped 28 shots as the Swift Current Broncos downed the host Vancouver Giants 3-1 on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Neither club could score with the man advantage as Swift Current went 0 for 1 and Vancouver went 0 for 3 on the power play.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
