Blades Fall in Calgary, Look to Rebound in Edmonton

November 27, 2021 - Western Hockey League (WHL) - Saskatoon Blades News Release

CALGARY, AB - The Saskatoon Blades couldn't repeat the same outcome from Friday night, falling 7-0 to the Calgary Hitmen at Scotiabank Saddledome.

It comes less than a day after Saskatoon skated to a 3-1 victory over the Red Deer Rebels, led by a two-goal performance by Trevor Wong.

The Blades' attention will now turn towards Alberta's capital, where they'll wrap up a challenging 'three-in-three' weekend against the Edmonton Oil Kings on Sunday afternoon.

Sean Tschigerl led the Hitmen's offense with four points, including a hat-trick, while Maxim Muranov, Adam Kydd, Riley Fiddler-Schultz and Blake Heward all had multi-point efforts. In total, 10 Calgary players found the scoresheet in Saturday's matinee as the Hitmen improve to 8-9-0-0 on the year.

Brayden Peters stopped all 23 shots he faced to improve his record to 7-9-0-0.

Nolan Maier turned aside 22 of 26 shots before Ethan Chadwick took over nearing the end of the second. The Saskatoon-product stopped 13 of 16 shots as the Blades fall to 12-8-1-0 on the campaign.

Six of Calgary's goals came in the final 40 minutes of play, including Tschigerl's hat-trick, which was secured with less than two minutes remaining.

This was Saskatoon's second game in less than 24 hours, following a late arrival into Calgary on Friday after beating Red Deer. Calgary returns to the win column after dropping two games last weekend.

Trekking through a stretch of nine-straight games away from home, the Blades will drop the puck for the seventh consecutive time on the road on Sunday in Edmonton. Puck drop is 5:00pm CT, with play-by-play coverage offered on 600 CJWW Radio, as well as
