Calgary Hitmen 5 - Brandon Wheat Kings 4

The Calgary Hitmen did what they have done all year Sunday afternoon at the Saddledome, and that is win hockey games.

The local boys found themselves in a fight of a game today against Brandon, trailing by two goals twice before finally coming out on the right end of a 5-4 victory.

Brandon held a 2-0 lead after one period, and a two goal lead in the second before Joel Broda and defenseman Michael Stone tied the game up at three before the second intermission.

After Brandon built a 4-3 lead on a powerplay marker at 8:56, Calgary’s Ian Schultz scored less than a minute later to tie the game and Brett Sonne scored the game winner —just his 2nd goal of the postseason—two minutes and fourteen second later.

Hitmen goaltender Martin Jones postseason numbers are staggering to date, 10-0, 1.09 GAA, and a .946 savepercentage.
