CALGARY - Calgary goalie Martin Jones stopped all 25 shots he faced to lead the Hitmen to a 5-0 win over the Prince Albert Raiders in Western Hockey League action Tuesday night.

For Jones, it was his sixth shutout of the season and 14th of his career to set a new Hitmen franchise record, surpassing the old standard of 13 career shutouts previously set by Justin Pogge.

Joel Broda, Ian Schultz and Michael Stone tallied a goal and an assist each for the Hitmen (46-17-3), who clinched top spot in the Central Division and at least the first or second seed overall in the Eastern Conference for the first round of the WHL playoffs.

Giffen Nyren and Tyler Shattock also scored, while Zak Stebner chipped in with a pair of assists.

For the Raiders (30-31-5), it was their fourth straight loss and seventh in their past 10 games.
