Two goals off the stick of Brad Morrison is all the Prince George Cougars needed in a 2-1 winning effort over the Saskatoon Blades Saturday night.
After a scoreless first period, Morrison was able to break the deadlock with just under a minute left in the second period as he buried a Jansen Harkins rebound.
Even after playing four games in the last five nights, Saskatoon would not give up that easily. The Blades came out firing in the third period and managed to score a goal four minutes into the frame with a quick high slot shot from Josh Patterson.
At the 13th minute, the Blades thought they had pulled ahead when Wyatt Sloboshan’s breakaway shot hit both posts, but did not ncross the line. The play was reviewed and stayed tied going into the dying minutes of the game.
With just over three minutes remaining, the New York Rangers prospect Brad Morrison would once again play the hero role, by converting a Jesse Gabrielle pass from behind the net. Morrison now has six goals on the season as Prince George wins its fourth straight game to improves to 11-2-1-0 on the season.
The cats now head out on a three game road trip starting on Wednesday night in Cranbrook for a tilt against the Kootenay Ice, along with stops in Lethbridge on Friday and Calgary on Saturday.
