Ice tie playoff series with Hitmen

According to the Western Hockey League website, the Kootenay Ice have tied their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series with the Calgary Hitmen at two games apiece. On Tuesday night, assistant captain Jaedon Descheneau of Edmonton, Alberta scored the game winning goal with 52 seconds left in regulation to break a 4-4 tie as the Ice defeated the Hitmen 5-4.

Descheneau and Zach Franko had a goal and an assist for the Ice, while Austin Vetterl notched two assists.

Ice head coach Ryan McGill did not take my game three advice from my post game analysis on Monday night. He once again started goaltender Mackenzie Skapski, who continued to struggle in game four. Skapski surrendered four goals on 18 shots and has now given up eleven goals in the last two games.

McGill justifiably did replace Skapski with backup goaltender Wyatt Hoflin, who was brilliant in making 20 saves in 33 minutes of work.

The Hitmen and Ice will now play game five of the series Thursday night from the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary.
