MOOSE JAW, Sask. - Cody Sylvester scored twice and set up another leading the Calgary Hitmen to a 5-2 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors on Wednesday night in the Western Hockey League.

Victor Rask, Danny Gayle and Alex Gogolev also scored for the Hitmen (12-10-2), who built period leads of 1-0 and 4-0.

Quinton Howden and Justin Kirsch scored back-to-back goals for -Moose Jaw (14-8-2) in the opening 11 minutes of the third period to pull the Warriors within a pair of goals. But any thoughts of a comeback were wiped out when Sylvester scored into an empty net.

"To get a win on the road in a tough building, we will take anytime," said Calgary's head coach Mike Williamson. "I thought we capitalized on some chances and (Brandon) Glover came up big and got some bounces from the posts in the second period."

Glover had another strong performance in the Hitmen goal, extending his personal winning streak to five games after making 30 saves against his former team.

There was no lack of penalties between the teams, who shared 101 penalty minutes and two fights.

"We got ourselves into some serious penalty trouble and that shortened our bench, pretty much," said Warriors coach Mike Stothers.

"It is pretty hard to amount a rally when you are spending time in the penalty box."
