For the first time ever the Moose Jaw Warriors have gone into Winnipeg and beat the ICE at the Wayne Fleming Arena, as they came away with a 6-4 come-from-behind win on Wednesday night. The win also clinched the season series against the ICE with a 3-2-0-1 record. Assistant coach Scott King spoke following Wednesday's win.
“Over the past few years, we’ve had some tough nights in here and the scores have been lopsided the other way, so to get one tonight, it gives the guys confidence that if we do run into this team down the road that we can play in this building,” Warriors assistant coach Scott King said.
Wednesday's victory also earned them a home-ice advantage in the first round of the playoffs, in addition, to giving them their 40th win of the campaign. The Warriors will wrap up their season this weekend with a road game in Prince Albert on Friday and will return home on Saturday to play Saskatoon.
