Riley Lamb made 36 saves for his first SJHL shutout, as the Weyburn Red Wings held off the Humboldt Broncos for a 2-0 victory at Crescent Point Place Friday night. The win is the second in a row for the Wings, who are now 5-2 on the season.
Lamb’s busiest period was the final frame when he made 17 saves. The biggest came with just over five minutes remaining when he made a sprawling glove save across the crease, robbing a golden opportunity from the Broncos with the man advantage.
The Red Wings offence was limited to just 21 shots, but they needed only two of them to find the twine. The first came from Jordan Kazymyra with 13 seconds left in the second period. The power play goal, his fifth of the season, was assisted by Dylan McCabe and Sean Olson.
Olson would score a goal of his own with just seconds left in the third. He pushed the puck into the neutral zone, then beat out the Bronco defenders to score a short-handed empty-netter.
The Red Wings were perfect on the penalty kill for the sixth game in a row, the longest streak in the SJHL. Weyburn finished the game going 1-for-4 with the man advantage.
The next game for the Red Wings is Wednesday when they head to Melville to take on the Millionaires. Their next home game is next Friday when they play host to the La Ronge Ice Wolves.
