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.

Levi Bews had a goal and an assist for the Broncos (13-15-5) while Ryon Moser and Adam Lowry each scored once.

Riley Keiser scored the lone goal for the Giants (8-21-0), who sit last in the WHL standings, and Payton Lee made 24 saves in a losing cause.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
