Goaltenders Adam Vander Linden and Devon Fordyce made 75 saves combined as the OCN Blizzard beat the Winkler Flyers 1-0 in the shootout on Friday night. Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the only goal of the six round shootout, handing the Flyers their second shootout loss in as many games.

Playing the first of two straight home games against the Blizzard, the Flyers looked to get back in the win column after falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Winnipeg Blues on Tuesday night.

 The Flyers had many great chances to score in the opening period but were unable to capitalize on their chances. The two teams skated into the first intermission scoreless despite Winkler outshooting the Blizzard 17-11 through 20 minutes.

With end to end action the entire game, both goaltenders stood tall and kept the game 0-0 throughout regulation and into the five minute overtime period. Despite the lack of goals, this contest was as exciting a game as you could ask for.

Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shoot-out and that proved to be the difference as OCN took game one of the weekend series 1-0.

Adam Vander Linden (3-1-1), who was credited with the shut-out, made 35 saves through 65 minutes of play as the Flyers out-shot the Blizzard 40-35 throughout regulation and overtime.

Winkler went 0-for-5 on the power-play and 4-for-4 on the penalty-kill.

The two teams will go at it again Saturday night in Winkler. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm.

Tristan Keck scored his second goal of the game with 9.9 seconds left in overtime to lift the Winkler Flyers to a 2-1 home ice victory over the Selkirk Steelers.

Adam Vander Linden kicked aside 29 of the 30 shots he faced while earning his second victory of the season.

With two days off since their last game, the Flyers returned home for their first meeting of the season against the Steelers. After beating Selkirk twice during preseason, the Orange and Black were poised to do the same during the regular season.

The Flyers took the play to Selkirk in the opening frame and drew first blood with 5:57 left in the period. Defenseman Connor Hamonic passed the puck up to Shawn Pachet who found Tristan Keck up near the Steelers blueline. Keck then cut to the middle of the ice and fired a wrist shot between the legs of the Selkirk defenseman and over the shoulder of the goaltender giving the Flyers a 1-0 lead.

Winkler outshot the Steelers 17-6 through the first 20 minutes, but were forced to settle for only a 1-0 lead heading into the intermission. Selkirk managed to outshoot the Flyers 12-6 in the second period but the Flyers still led the game 1-0 heading into the third.

The Steelers were able to tie the game at one, 5:38 into the third period and with the score remaining tied through regulation, the game was headed for overtime.

With the five minute overtime period nearly at and end, Tristan Keck was able to send the home crowd happy for the second time this season. Skating down the left wing, Keck made his way towards the front of the net and scored his second goal of the game over the right shoulder of Steelers goaltender Nathan Park to secure the 2-1 victory. Evan Last and Connor Hamonic drew the assists on Keck’s third goal of the season.

Adam Vander Linden had another strong game in goal for Winkler making 29 saves while improving his record to 2-0. Winkler out-shot Selkirk 34-30 overall. The Flyers were 0-for-3 on the power-play and 2-for-2 on the penalty-kill.

The Flyers (2-1) will host the Dauphin Kings (2-0) on Friday, September 26th in their next game. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm. Winkler had a 2-2 record against the Kings last season.

Flyers Fall To Pistons

The Steinbach Pistons got some revenge on the Winkler Flyers with a 5-3 win on home ice, in the back half of their season opening home and home series.

A night after the Flyers beat the Pistons 4-2 in their home opener, Steinbach returned the favor in their first regular season home game.

With the two former division rivals playing each other for the second straight night, the home town Pistons managed to take advantage of their home crowds energy and a few Flyers miscues.

Steinbach opened the scoring with a power-play goal just over six minutes into the game and increased their lead to 2-0 with 5:05 to play in the opening period. The Flyers responded quickly just 51 seconds later when Bryce Enns tipped in an Evan Last shot, cutting Steinbach’s lead to 2-1.

However, just 39 seconds after that, Tyler Penner restored the Pistons two goal lead. The Flyers would get that one back before the end of the period thanks to Jon Carlson’s unassisted goal with 1:40 to play before the break.

Before the end of the period, Flyers defenseman Nathan Karlowsky and Pistons forward Jonah Wasylak were each given five minutes for fighting and a game misconduct. The incident also resulted in Karlowsky being given a match penalty for striking an opponent with a helmet.

Winkler managed to kill off the entire five minute penalty and built some momentum in the second period. The Flyers tied the game at three with 5:33 to play in the period when Josh Cook buried a loose puck in front of the net, with Lawson McDonald drawing the assist. Once again, the Pistons had an answer and went back in front 4-3 with 1:08 remaining.

The Flyers had their chances in the third period but were not able to get the equalizer. Dustin Loeppky gave the Pistons some insurance with just over five minutes to play, when Flyers goaltender Dasan Sydora got tripped up behind the net allowing the Pistons to go ahead 5-3. In the end, the Flyers had their chances to get the two points, despite not playing their best hockey.

Sydora played well in his Flyers regular season debut despite the loss. The Red Deer native made 29 saves overall as the Pistons outshot the Flyers 34-27. Winkler went 0-for-4 on the power-play, including a 5-on-3 in the third period. The Flyers were 3-for-4 on the penalty-kill.

The Flyers (1-1) will return to Winkler to host the Selkirk Steelers (0-2) on Tuesday night. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm. The Flyers next three games are all on home ice.
