PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Nick Buonassisi scored twice and Curtis Honey stopped 36-of-38 shots as the Brandon Wheat Kings doubled up the host Prince Albert Raiders 4-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League play.
Tim McGauley had a goal and an assist for the Wheat Kings (22-38-6), who ended a six-game winless streak, and Jayce Hawryluk added a single goal.
Dakota Conroy and Anthony Bardaro scored for the Raiders (35-24-6) and Luke Siemens made 24 saves in defeat.
Brandon went 0 for 4 on the power play while Prince Albert failed to score on its only chance with the man advantage.
It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
