Six Scorers Left Hitmen
Calgary, AB - The Calgary Hitmen scored twice in each period en route to a 6-2 win over the Moose Jaw Warriors on Sunday at the Scotiabank Saddledome.
Carson Focht led the way with three assists while goals came from six different players. Mark Kastelic and Tye Carriere helped the Hitmen to a 2-1 lead after the opening period with James Malm and Kaden Elder building the advantage to 4-1 through 40 minutes. Riley Stotts and Cael Zimmerman then rounded out the scoring in the third period.
The Hitmen, 7-1-1-0 in their last nine games, outshot Moose Jaw 39-22 with goaltender Carl Stankowski making 20 saves to pick up the victory.
The Warriors, who dropped all four games in the season series, received markers from Keenan Taphorn and Josh Brook.
