Christopher Tai makes 40 saves for Lethbridge in 4-1 victory over Moose Jaw

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - Christopher Tai made 40 saves as the Lethbridge Hurricanes defeated the Moose Jaw Warriors 4-1 in Western Hockey League play Sunday.

Reid Duke and Jaimen Yakubowski each scored twice for the Hurricanes (20-18-6), with the pair each beating Moose Jaw goalie Justin Paulic in the first and third periods.

Brayden Point's power-play goal 3:09 into the third was the lone goal of the game for the Warriors (14-21-7), who lost their fourth straight.

Paulic meanwhile finished with 27 saves.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
