The Huskies were down 2-0 five-and-a-half minutes into the second before they turned things around, scoring four unanswered goals.

Kurtis Lee had a three-point night (1 goal, 2 assists) Saturday to lead the Huskies to another 4-2 decision, this time over the Grande Prairie Wheat Kings.

Nick Loewen and Raymond Dick each added a goal and and a helper in what proved to be Fort St. John’s 11-straight win – the Huskies went unbeaten for the entire month of November.
