A week after the Huskies lost their first game after winning seven straight, they hosted the Vipers and beat up on Sexsmith as if nothing happened.
The Huskies won 11-1 on an incredible 73 shots, allowing just 20 shots against.
Joel Bourgeois led the Huskies with a hat trick and two assists for five points, while Gary Loewen had a goal and three assists. Tyler McArthur got the win in net.
The Huskies needed to get the week started on the right foot, as they head to Peace River for two games this weekend (December 14 and 15) against the second place Navigators. The Navs are just three points back of Fort St. John.
