Pistons Prevail 4-2 Over Freeze to Start Season with Three Wins

The Steinbach Pistons beat the Winnipeg Freeze by a score of 4-2 Wednesday evening in Winnipeg to move to 3 wins on the season.

Davis Fry opened the scoring for Steinbach midway through the first period. Nate Goodbrandson found Fry in the high slot who put it past Keegan Gordon to give Steinbach the lead.

Steinbach’s penalty kill bailed them out three times in the first period as they locked down the backend and went into the first intermission with a 1-0 lead.

Nate Goodbrandson added to the Pistons lead midway through the second period on the powerplay. Davis Fry found Goodbrandson at the right faceoff dot who scored an absolute beauty, putting it top corner over Gordon’s shoulder and bar down.

Davin Griffin made it 3-0, 9-minutes later and tried to one up Goodbrandson in the beautiful goal category. Griffin put a wrist shot on net from a sharp angle and snuck it over Gordon’s shoulder to extend the Pistons lead.

Winnipeg made it interesting in the third period as they scored two goals, one from Elliot Perrault and the other from Darik Feasey. Feasey’s goal was also quite nice as he made a move around the Pistons defender and snuck it five hole on Cole Plowman.

Winnipeg pulled their goalie with just under two minutes remaining but to no avail as Travis Hensrud put the nail in the coffin scoring the empty netter and securing the 4-2 victory.
