The Prince George Cougars (3-4-0-0) registered 40 shots on goal and got a goal from Carter MacAdams, but it was all the offence PG could muster, falling 2-1 to the Brandon Wheat Kings on Wednesday night at CN Centre.
No goals were scored in the opening frame despite the Cougars firing 13 shots toward goaltender Carson Bjarnason. The Wheat Kings had some opportunities of their own, especially in the opening 5 minutes of the game.
In the second, the Wheat Kings were able to get the scoring started from a wrist shot courtesy of Nate Danielson who labelled one top corner on the blocker side of Tyler Brennan. Danielson’s first of the season was assisted by Zakhar Polshakov and Brett Hyland at 15:16. Just under three minutes later, a Carter MacAdams howitzer from the left circle went top shelf on Bjarnason to tie the game at one. MacAdams’ third of the season was assisted by Ethan Samson at 18:07.
In the third, the Wheat Kings found themselves on the power-play and were able to convert on an odd man rush as Brett Hyland received a cross ice feed in tight from Nate Danielson to make it 2-1 Brandon. Hyland’s third of the season was assisted by Danielson and Carson Bjarnason at 8:10.
