Kyle Bortis set up both of McMillan's markers and scored the lone goal of the first period for the Hitmen (12-6-0-1), who ended a three-game losing streak.

Ryan White notched his team-leading eighth goal of the season, while goalie Dan Spence made 30 saves to improve his record to 7-2-1.

Justin McRae scored the lone goal of the game for the Blades (4-11-1-0) at 16:43 of the third period to ruin Spence's shut-out bid.

Saskatoon netminder Braden Holtby stopped 10 of the 13 shots he face before being pulled from the game at 12:01 of the second period after surrendering goals 19 seconds apart to McMillan and White. Garrett Zemiak made nine saves in relief for the Blades, who have yet to win a game on the road this season in 10 attempts.
