Darren Dietz, Brett Stovin and Nick Zajac each had a goal and an assist for the Blades (42-22-4), who won for the first time since having their 18-game win streak snapped on Mar. 3rd by the Moose Jaw Warriors, and Brenden Walker added a single goal.

Cam Lanigan turned away 28-of-34 shots in a losing cause.

Both clubs went 1 for 4 on the power play.

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.
