Laurikainen earns first WHL shutout as the Broncos blank the Raiders

SWIFT CURRENT, Sask. - Eetu Laurikainen stopped 35 shots on Saturday for his first Western Hockey League shutout as the Swift Current Broncos blanked the visiting Prince Albert Raiders 3-0.

Adam Lowry had a goal and an assist for the Broncos (26-24-5), who halted a three-game winless streak, and Brett Lernout and Chance Lund each scored once.

Lernout's goal was his first of his WHL career.

Luke Siemens turned away 38-of-41 shots in a losing cause for the Raiders (31-20-5).

Swift Current went 0 for 2 on the power play while Prince Albert failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That's the biggest goal I've ever scored. It's a great feeling any time you do that, especially at home. We're one game away from a Stanley Cup berth. It was a huge goal and it felt unbelievable.
