Walker scores two third-period goals, Blades beat Warriors in wild game

SASKATOON - Brenden Walker's empty-net goal ended up counting as the winner as the Saskatoon Blades beat the Moose Jaw Warriors 5-4 in a wild Western Hockey League game on Tuesday.

Walker put the Blades up 4-3 with a goal at 6:58 of the third period, then his empty-netter with 35 seconds remaining seemed to cement the win.

The Warriors gave the Blades one last scare, however, when Brayden Point scored his second of the game with six seconds remaining.

Brett Stovin also scored a pair of goals for Saskatoon (28-21-3), while Josh Nicholls had the other Blades goal.

Sam Fioretti and Tanner Eberle had the other goals for Moose Jaw (18-27-9).

Both goaltenders faced a lot of rubber in this game. Saskatoon's Andrei Makarov picked up the win stopping 35 of 39 shots.

Justin Paulic was stellar in a losing cause for the Warriors, making 50 saves on 54 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's a date that's been circled on my calendar, so it's kind of nice to have it here and get it over with (Thursday). This is a little bit of the closing of the book on the move. That's kind of how I'm looking at it.
