Terriers Down the Blues

A goal in the first and last minute of the game were enough to give the Terriers their 8th straight win as they down the Blues in regulation.

Rookie Logan Calder beat Jeremy Link with a backhand 25 seconds into the first period to give Portage the early lead.

It was a good opening period for the Terriers who were strong on the forecheck and won battles in the offensive zone. Their early lead held for the first period.

7:29 into the 2nd, Ty Naaykens tied the game at one with an ice burner from the top of the circle that caught the far corner on Ethan Peterson.

Portage more than doubled the Blues in shots in the second, but were unable to regain the lead and the game stayed tied at one entering the 3rd.

It was looking like the game would go into overtime for the third time this season between these two teams when Ty Barnstable fed Orca Wiesblatt a cross crease pass for the game winner.

Ethan Peterson faced 22 shots and picked up his 8th win of the season. Portage went 0/3 on the powerplay.

The Terriers are on the road this Friday to Dauphin, game time 7:30pm.
