Post Game with Graham Black and Jake DeBrusk
Jake DeBrusk played hero again as he scored in overtime on Wednesday to lift the Swift Current Broncos to a 3-2 win over Medicine Hat to tie their first round series 2-2.
It was the second straight game winning goal for the rookie who has scored three times in four playoff games.
“It’s amazing,” DeBrusk said. “Confidence is high. It’s the best feeling you can have as a player.”
Only 5:06 into overtime DeBrusk took a puck on his off wing and beat Marek Langhamer to lift his team to a dramatic victory and another memorable Broncos comeback.
“I came across the blue line and I was looking to shoot right away,” he said. “Stanton wasn’t giving me much early but I kind of gave him a little head fake I guess, kind of cut to the middle and I just ripped it. I didn’t really see how hard the shot went, but I just saw the net move and red light on and the crowd went nuts. It was awesome.”
