Ryon Moser scored with 0.8 seconds left on the clock as the Swift Current Broncos beat the Calgary Hitmen 5-4.
“In my junior career that’s the biggest (goal) so far,” Moser said. “It’s pretty cool, I didn’t realize how much time was left I thought I had 10 seconds. After the goal I looked up and it was 0.8… it was great to get the win against a good team like that.”
It was an up and down game as the lead changed five times before the Broncos pulled off the last second win.
“I thought it was just a great game,” said Broncos Assistant Coach Darren Evjen. “It was very fast (and) it had everything you want to see in a hockey game.”
Adam Lowry scored once and had 3 assists for the Broncos. Moser, the returning Levi Bews and Reece Scarlett all had 2 point nights for the Broncos.
“It’s awesome,” Bews said of his first game since December 28th. “You can’t ask for a better game to come back to… after a win like that everything feels good.”
Moser extended his points streak to 4 games and Scarlett extended his to 6 games.
Alex Roach and Brady Brassart each scored twice for Calgary in a losing cause. Roach opened the scoring 15 seconds into the game before Bews answered for the Broncos and Coda Gordon gave Swift Current their first lead of the game with a 5 on 3 goal. Brassart pounced on a turnover to quickly tie the game at 2 before the game even hit the ten minute mark of the first period.
Calgary jumped out to another lead as Brassart tucked a puck under Broncos goaltender Eetu Laurikainen at 6:54 of the second period. Lowry struck back at 12:30 as Moser set him up and the Winnipeg Jets draft pick ripped a shot by Chris Driedger in the perfect spot just before the Calgary netminder was able to come across.
Laurikainen made 29 saves for the Broncos to get the win, while Driedger allowed 5 goals in 27 Swift Current shots.
Swift Current got their second lead of the game early in the third when Richard Nedomlel’s point shot found its’ way through traffic. It took less than two minutes for the Hitmen to tie the game up when Roach got a similar goal off a faceoff win in the Broncos’ zone. Both teams exchanged chances throughout the remainder of the period and weren’t able to find another go-ahead goal until Moser’s last second heroics.
“We’re learning how to win against these good teams,” Moser said. “That’s what we’re going to have to do come playoff time is beat these good teams and I think we’ve shown we can do it. We’re just getting more confidence as a team.”
Swift Current went 1 for 2 on the power play, while Calgary went 0 for 2. Gordon was back in the lineup after his 2 game suspension, but the Broncos were missing Graham Black as he served the first game of his 2 game suspension for an elbow in Saturday’s game against Moose Jaw.
The Broncos moved into sole possession of 5th place in the Eastern Conference with the win. They’re in Edmonton on Friday and Sasktoon on Saturday.
