Another solid win for the Fort St. John Huskies at the North Peace Arena Saturday night, their second in two nights.

This time, however, it was Daniel Sturgeon who backstopped the Huskies to a 3-2 decision over the Dawson Creek Kodiaks.

“It wasn’t pretty but we grinded through it, got it done in the end,” said Sturgeon, who turned aside 26 of the 28 shots he faced.

Like Friday, the Huskies found themselves down early in the contest but, again, were able to quickly rebound.

“This year we’ve been pretty resilient. We’ve come back from quite a few. Keep figuring things out as we go along,” said the first-year Huskies’ goaltender who improved his record to a perfect 7-0.

Nick Loewen mounted the comeback less than four minutes after the Kodiaks opened the scoring.

Chase London would put the Huskies up 2-1 less than five minutes later, on the power play, with two Kodiak players in the box.

Alex Nimmo would provide the game winner early in the third.

With the win, the Huskies improve to 26-1-1.

They’re in Sexsmith Wednesday night to play the Vipers.
