Peterson scores tiebreaker to lift Calgary Hitmen over Prince Albert Raiders 4-3

PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Rookie forward Elliott Peterson broke a 3-3 third period tie with 7:25 remaining lifting the Calgary Hitmen to a 4-3 win over the Prince Albert Raiders Wednesday in the WHL.

Peterson scored a pair of goals while Chase Clayton and Cody Sylvester both had a goal and an assist for the Hitmen (42-20-5), who rallied from 3-1 second-period deficit to win their second straight.

Chris Driedger made 38 saves for Calgary, which clinched home ice advantage in the opening round of the playoffs with a start date to be announced later this month.

Jonas Knutsen, Mark McNeill and Leon Draisaitl scored the goals for the Raiders (35-26-6). Luke Siemens had 28 saves for Prince Albert.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
