A 600+ kilometre stretch between Tuesday’s game and Wednesday’s didn’t stop the Kindersley Klippers from running their winning streak to five games, with a 3-2 shootout victory in Notre Dame.
The Klippers were coming off a win in La Ronge 24 hours earlier.
The Hounds (13-16-2-4) led the game twice, thanks to a first period goal from Kyle Robinson and a second period marker from Conor MacLean. Josh Fletcher answered both, scoring twice for the Klippers (19-8-2-1). Fletcher missed his shootout attempt, as Ty Enns scored the shootout winner.
Zach Johnson earned the win making 32/34 saves and 3/3 in the shootout. Notre Dame’s Riley Kohonick made 39/41 saves through regulation and overtime.
The Klippers have a much shorter travel day Thursday as they’ll wrap the gruelling 3-in-3 in Weyburn, looking to sweep the trip and run their streak to six.
One other Thursday matchup has Battlefords on the road in La Ronge.
