Winther scores twice, Siemens makes 41 saves to lead Raiders over Warriors 4-1

MOOSE JAW, Sask. - Mike Winther scored twice and Luke Siemens made 41 saves Tuesday as the Prince Albert Raiders defeated the Moose Jaw Warriors 4-1 in the Western Hockey League.

Dakota Conroy and Jayden Hart had the other goals for the Raiders (34-23-6), while Mark McNeill chipped in with three assists.

Brayden Point had the only goal for the Warriors (21-33-9), who got 24 saves from Justin Paulic in a losing effort.

Leading 1-0 after the first period on a goal from Conroy, Winther doubled the Prince Albert lead at 7:43 of the second.

Point got Moose Jaw on the board at 6:40 of the third period, but Hart restored the Raiders' two-goal advantage with a power-play goal at 10:43.

Winther then put the game out of reach with his second of the night at 14:49.

McNeill assisted on the last three Prince Albert goals.

The Raiders finished the night 1-for-3 on the power play, while the Warriors were scoreless in their three opportunities with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
