The Fort St. John Huskies wern't at their best on Wednesday night, but they were able to hold on for the 5-4 win over the Dawson Creek Junior Canucks anyway. It was the Huskies' 11th straight win, and 18th in their last 19 games.
The one thing that has been consistent in this streak is that the Huskies have been able to win both blowout games, and close ones where they might not have been at their best. With the win, the team clinched first place for the playoffs, with an incredible eight games still to play.
Jared Loewen led the team with three points, while Joel Bourgeois had a big game with two key goals.
