Bruins defeated in Kindersley

A three-goal first period was enough offence for the Kindersley Klippers to get the win, as they defeated the Power Dodge Estevan Bruins 3-2 on Saturday night in Kindersley.

Austin Nault scored 1:54 into the game to give the Klippers an early 1-0 lead, and Damon McKenzie and Ian Hillis also scored in the opening frame to lift the Klippers to the three-goal advantage.

Jake Heerspink and Jerzy Martin scored 84 seconds apart in the second period to pull the Bruins to within a goal.

The third period saw the Bruins run into penalty trouble, taking three minors in the final 10 minutes. The Klippers outshot the Black and Gold 13-7 in the third, and held the Bruins off the score sheet.

The loss snapped the Bruins five-game winning streak.

Jake Anthony stopped 38 shots for the Bruins in the defeat. Justen Close made 26 saves to get the win for the Klippers.

The Bruins will wrap up their current road trip with a game at the Humboldt Broncos Sunday afternoon at 3:30 p.m.
