Terriers come out on top against the Blues

Chapman gets the win in net.

The Terriers came out on top last night at Stride Place in their last meeting of the regular season with the Winnipeg Blues.

After a scoreless first period Chase Brakel was the first to find the back of the net just :55 seconds in the second frame. It would be the only goal of the game after forty minutes with the Blues tallying just 3 shots in 20 minutes.

The Terriers came out in the third with two quick goals, McIsaac scoring both.

“It’s always fun to get a couple of goals against your old team. I thought my line played well so overall it was a good game,” says McIsaac. “We like to do a lot of three on two drills at practice, so we kind of were prepared for that in this one. Leipsic, Brakel and I have built some chemistry between us, we found some space, and it worked out for us here.”

Le Blanc scored for the Blues with the extra attacker just passed the halfway point of the third, but were unable to sustain the momentum. With 3:45 left the Blues pulled their goalie looking to get back in it, but Portage shut them down. Ty Enns made the most of the empty net scoring his 26th of the year.

Chapman registered the win in net making 24 saves. The Terriers hit the road Friday for the first of a home and home with the Steelers. Portage is chasing Selkirk in the standings and these are a big four points up for grabs.
