Eetu Laurikainen needed only 14 saves to earn the shutout as the Swift Current Broncos beat Kootenay 3-0 on Wednesday night.
The victory ran Swift Current’s winning streak to nine games.
“Anytime you can get a 3-0 win over a real good hockey team,” said Broncos Assistant Coach Jamie Heward. “Limit them to very few chances. They had 14 shots I bet they only had 8 chances.”
Some of that credit went to the line of Zac Mackay, Connor Sanvido and Andrew Johnson as they were tasked with matching up against potential first overall NHL draft pick Sam Reinhart.
“For us that’s been the biggest key for our success this year,” Heward said. “Having that third line with the ability to play against their top line which then frees up (Graham Black) and frees up (Colby Cave).”
