The Huskies remained perfect on the season with a 7-2 victory over the Sexsmith Vipers running their record to 3-0 on the season and putting them atop the league standings.   Despite the lopsided score it was a competitive game for at least two periods as Sexsmith played hard to try and keep pace with the more talented Huskies. Robbie Sidhu opened the scoring with fifty seconds remaining in the first period, but Sexsmith stormed right back tying the game 1-1 with just nine seconds left on the clock.  

The game remained relatively evenly matched throughout the second as one could definitely see that the Huskies were the more talented team, but it seemed that they were having trouble pulling the games together to put the Vipers away.  The Vipers nearly killed a two man advantage, before Aaron Dendys continued his hot start to the season with his third goal in three games burying a power play marker to salvage the two man advantage.  Cash Brinkworth also scored for the Huskies in the second period as they entered the second intermission with a 3-2 lead.  

It was the third period when the Huskies finally began to shine.  The Huskies rallied for four goals in the period, putting the game out of reach for the overmatched Vipers.  Kole Norris lead the Huskies attack in the third with two goals and an assist in the period.  Ty Gullickson played a solid game in goal stopping 16 shots in the victory despite taking a delay of game penalty in the third.  The Huskies were perfect in the penalty killing department managing to fend off nine Sexsmith power plays including a two man advantage in the final period. 

The Huskies set off for the first road trip of the season next Friday for a tilt with Dawson Creek.   Be sure to tune into Moose FM to catch all the action.
