Game 43 vs Hitmen Game Summary

Friday night the Warriors played the Hitmen in their first of three games in three nights. The Warriors grabbed an early lead in the first, but fell 5-2 in defeat at the Scotiabank Saddledome.

It was a fast paced first period. The period was also free-flowing in both the skating and puck moving aspects of the game. The Warriors executed an excellent road period by limiting offensive chances and creating opportunities at the other end. A tight defensive shell and an aggressive offensive attack is what helped give the Warriors an early lead in the game. Shayne Gwinner scored his second goal of the season at the five minute mark of the period, Eric Arnold and Andrew Johnson were tabbed with the helpers. The Warriors put eight shots at the Hitmen net during the first frame.

The second period saw the Hitmen score five unanswered goals to grab a 5-1 lead. Moose Jaw Warriors defenseman Travis Brown scored a late goal in the third to make the score 5-2. The Warriors had two powerplay chances which generated chances, but were unable to capitalize. Moose Jaw put 29 shots at the Hitmen net in the game.
