SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Adam Lowry scored a hat trick to reach a new career high in goals while leading the Swift Current Broncos to a 4-0 win over the visiting Kootenay Ice on Sunday in Western Hockey League action.
Lowry now has a team-high 21 goals after scoring at even strength and adding a pair of power-play goals. The Broncos' captain now has nine power-play goals and his 21 goals eclipses his previous best of 18 during the 2010-11 season.
Rookie goaltender Landon Bow stopped all 20 shots he faced for the Broncos (15-17-5) to earn his first career shutout in his first WHL win, as he is now 1-1-1-0 on the year.
Swift Current also had a goal from Graham Black with his 15th of the season. Coda Gordon chipped in with three assists.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
