The Pistons pulled off the win in Steinbach last night to keep their playoff life alive ending the Terriers 31 game winning streak. It was all Pistons as they scored in the first and rolled from there. You could hear the crowd get more involved with each goal they scored.
The Terriers had a hard time finding the back of the net and their frustration showed, giving up 8 power plays on the night.
Goderis was first to score at the 18:50 point of the first for their first lead of this series.
The Terriers came out hard in the 2nd, but were unable to make it happen before Taillefer scored Steinbach’s second and Schoonbaert would bury the third just 30 seconds later for a 3 goal Pistons’ lead.
The 3rd was more of the same as Steinbach scored 2 power play goals for a 5 goal edge. (Smith, Schoonbaert.) That would be it for Park stopping 30 of the 35 shots he faced. The Terriers would finally get on the board at the 11:20 mark of the 3rd as Brakel would tip in a point shot from Cody Haiskanen short-handed. 1:17 later, Leipsic would get Bengert to bite and score a beautiful goal to bring the Terriers within 3. It was too little, too late. Penner would score a 6th goal on Bykowski with 1:41 to go in the game making the final score 6-2.
The Terriers will be looking to finish the series at home in Game 5 at the PCU Centre, Tuesday the 19th at 7:30pm. Get your tickets early to avoid line ups.
