The Steinbach Pistons look to close out their four-game series against the Portage Terriers tonight with a win in Portage. The Pistons have won the first 3 games outscoring the Terriers 15 – 9 over that span.
With the last 2 games being close games, the Steinbach Pistons have managed each game to have the upper hand, out play the Terriers and come out with the win. Travis Hensrud has been on an offensive tear over the last 3 games getting 6 points (4 goals and 2 assists) in that time. With the Pistons winning last night and the Blues losing the Pistons are now solely in first place in the MJHL and look to continue that tonight.
The Portage Terriers have put up a fight in each game against the Pistons and keeping it close. The Terriers record does not portray well the skill and fight that this team has as they have just fallen short each time. Logan Calder has been great for the Pistons as he has scored 3 goals in 3 games against the Pistons.
PISTONS: PP 11/57 – 19.2% PK 42/45 – 93.3%
TERRIERS: PP 7/58 – 12.1% PK 42/54 – 77.7%
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Pistons: Davis Fry
Davis Fry has looked amazing over the past 3 games versus the Portage Terriers. In the 3 games he has 5 points (2 goals and 3 assists). Fry has been showing off his offensive ability, especially last night on his highlight reel goal, going right around Terriers goaltender Chris Fines.
Terriers: Logan Calder
Logan Calder has been one of the offensive forces for the Terriers these past 3 games. Calder scored twice in the 6-5 OT game and the Terriers lone goal last night. A leader on the team, Calder plays in all situations whether it be on the rush or backchecking and locking down their zone.
