Wings Edge Millionaires In OT

By Craig Stein

NOW TIED FOR FINAL PLAYOFF SPOT

With back to back wins in Melville in five nights, the Weyburn Red Wings have moved into a tie, with the Millionaires for the 10th and final playoff spot heading into the final three games of the regular season.

Dawson McKenzie (1g-1a) scored 1:06 into overtime Wednesday night, as the Wings pulled off a 4-3 (OT) decision.  The two teams are now even with 40 points and three games remaining.  Weyburn now owns the tie-breaker, at least for now as well, with 16 regulation + overtime wins, to Melville’s 15.

Sean Olson scored twice for the Red Wings (17-32-5-1) and Jacob Piller added the other.  Cody Levesque made 31/34 saves.

Damian Bentz returned to Melville’s lineup and was in on all three of their goals, opening the scoring just 1:57 into the game, before setting Josh Borynec (1g-1a) for a second period marker, and Max McPeak who forced overtime with under six minutes left.  Colby Entz made 29/33 saves for the Millionaires (15-30-6-4).

The two teams both have three games left.
