Calgary, AB - The Calgary Hitmen picked up where they left off last weekend with another huge win over the Moose Jaw Warriors. The Hitmen came out victorious with a score of 7-1.

Tyson Galloway wasted no time opening up the scoring with a shot from the top of the circles at just 2:42 into the game. Zac Funk notched his sixth of the season with a helper from Riley Fiddler-Schultz who extended his point streak to three games. With the Hitmen in the penalty box, Sean Tschigerl found the back of the net, adding to his league leading five short-handed goals. Tschigerl added one at the end of the frame, scoring his second of the game, at 19:34 to make the score 4-0.

Cael Zimmerman netted his fifth of the season with a feed from Adam Kydd to start the second period. Brandon Whynott tallied his second of the year and the Hitmen's sixth goal at 12:44. The Warriors had a few quality chances in the second but were answered with a goal from David Adaszynski with just fifteen seconds left to go in the period. Adaszynski returned to the lineup tonight after playing in the Hockey Canada Capital City Challenge this past week.

The Warriors finally got on the board with a power play goal from Logan Doust 9:52 into the third. The Hitmen were able to keep the score at 7-1, extending their winning streak to three.

With four points on the night, Fiddler- Schultz moves up to spot number four in points for the league with 30. Tschigerl is riding a four-game point streak, tallying 11 points in the past four games. The Hitmen have scored 24 goals in their last three games.

Doors will open 90 minutes before the opening faceoff and include Hitmen Happy Hour featuring $5 food and beverage items.
