Pistons Win in Virden

The Pistons traveled to Virden looking for their first win in the Tundra Oil & Gas Place since they won the Turnbull cup there last season.

Virden had most of the momentum throughout the 1st period. The Pistons took 3 penalties in the opening 20 minutes. The penalty kill of the Pistons was in full force, with Matt Radomsky turning away every puck that came his way.

While the 2nd period had the same result as the 1st period the momentum started to swing in the Pistons favour.  The scoring was finally opened up by Easton Bennett 6:28 into the 3rd period. Bennett squeaked one by Virden’s Dosch off of the assist from Troy Williams. Bennett’s goal electrified the team fuelling them for the remainder of the game.

With just a couple minutes left in the game Tyson McConnell scored the games second goal off of a great play from Kyle Bettens. With Tanner Mole still out with an injury the line of McConnell, Bettens and Westbrook has started to find some chemistry over the last couple games, recording point in 2 of the 3 games they have played together.

Finally Martin finished off the scoring with 1:18 left in the contest Brady Tatro made the steal and pass to Brendan Martin who put the puck in the open net to seal the deal again the Virden Oil Capitals.

Matt Radomsky recorded his first career start, and win in Tundra Oil & Gas Place. Facing 25 shots Radomsky turned away everything that came his way recording his 3rd shut out of the season.

The Pistons head to Selkirk on Tuesday on the Steelers at 7:30 catch the game on HockeyTV.
