The Fort St. John Huskies used up every ounce of energy they had and come Sunday afternoon, it was well worth it. Being with only 10 skaters for a back-to-back weekend trip against Whitecourt and Slave Lake, the Huskies had their backs against the wall.
After dropping a disappointing 7-0 loss at the hands of the Wolverines in Edson, Alberta on Saturday night, the Pups were back in action on Sunday taking on the Slave Lake Wolves.
Robbie Sidhu opened the scoring just over 5:00 minutes into the opening campaign. The Wolves answered back with two straight goals before the end of the 1st to notch a 2-1 advantage. That lead remained until the 3rd after a scoreless 2nd period where it was Glass and then Sidhu again to give the Huskies a 1 goal advantage.
The Pups were able to hang on for a 3-2 final thanks in large part to Travis McLean in the Huskies net and his best friend as a couple of close chances from Slave Lake careened off the goal post.
You can catch the next Huskies broadcast on 100.1 Moose FM and www.energeticcity.ca Saturday, November 20th with the pregame show starting at 7:45 and puck drop at 8:00 pm.
