Ostepchuk Stops 31 Shots in Loss to Bulls

March 23, 2019 - Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) - Evansville Thunderbolts News Release

Evansville, IN: After last night's 5-2 loss to Birmingham, it was a battle of the goaltenders, as Mavric Parks and Evansville netminder, Braeden Ostepchuk, went save for save for the majority of the game, and despite the loss, Ostepchuk was stellar in net, making 31 saves on 33 shots faced, as he kept the Thunderbolts in the game all night long. It would be another solid night on the penalty kill as well, as the Thunderbolts went a perfect 2-for-2, and now have not allowed a power play goal in three-consecutive contests.

With the home schedule concluded, the Thunderbolts next head to Peoria on Friday the 29th and Saturday the 30th, for two games against the Rivermen at Carver Arena. Both games will start at 7:15pm CT, and you can catch the action on SPHL Live, or you can listen for free on the Thunderbolts Radio Network, via, on the Thunderbolts MixLr Channel, or via the official app of the Thunderbolts, available on Google Play and on the App Store.
