Merkley with goal and an assist as the Broncos down the Raiders

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Jay Merkley had a goal and an assist to lead the Swift Current Broncos to a 3-1 win over the visiting Prince Albert Raiders on Friday in Western Hockey League play.

Merkley scored the eventual game winner 2:25 into the third period when he converted a rebound for his 16th goal of the season. He also assisted on the game's opening goal by Graham Black.

Colby Cave scored an insurance goal for the Broncos (20-20-5) and Adam Lowry picked up an assist, which extends his current point streak to a league-high 17 games.

Josh Morrissey scored for the Raiders (25-15-3) at the 1:09 mark of the second period.

Eetu Laurikainen turned aside 43-of-44 shots for the win as Luke Siemens gave up two goals on 32 shots in a losing cause.

Swift Current failed to earn any power-play opportunities while Prince Albert went 0 for 1 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
