Bruins winning streak ends against Yorkton

The Power Dodge Estevan Bruins seven-game winning streak came to an end Tuesday night in a 6-5 road loss to the Yorkton Terriers.

Chantz Petruic scored 1:43 into the game to give the Terriers a 1-0 lead, but then TJ Irey, Turner Ripplinger and Devan Harrison tallied for a 3-1 Bruin advantage. Colby Brandt scored before the period was over to pull the Terriers to within one.

The two teams traded goals in the second. Petruic scored his second of the game to tie the game, but Bryce Platt responded a couple of minutes later to restore the Bruins lead. Yorkton tied the game again on a goal by Cody Bruchowski, but Tyson Manz’s short-handed goal with five seconds remaining in the period gave the Bruins a 5-4 lead after two periods.

Mason Mullaney scored for Yorkton 5:05 into the third to tie the game again, and Brandt scored his second of the game 62 seconds later for what proved to be the winning goal.

Kadin Kilpatrick stopped 25 shots in the loss.

With the win, Yorkton (25-22-1) pulled to within two points of the Bruins (25-21-2-1) for first place in the Viterra Division; the Terriers have a game in hand.

The Bruins will return to the ice this weekend with a home and home against the Melville Millionaires. The two teams play Friday night at Affinity Place and Saturday in Melville. Both games start at 7:30 p.m.
