Mils get a point but lose 2-1 in OT to Kindersley

 To keep it The Melville Millionaires put together another solid effort on the ice, but managed to get only a point as they lost 2-1 to the Kindersley Klippers. 

After a very good start to the game last night in the Battlefords, it wasn't quite the same tonight here in Kindersley as just 48 seconds into the opening frame Darcy Deroose's shot slipped through goaltender Troy Trombley for his 10th of the season (1st as a Klipper) to provide the only offence of the 1st to give the Klippers a 1-0 lead.

The Mils started off period number 2 with a couple PP chances but as what has become a common theme for the Money man as the PP continued to struggle and weren't able to capitalize. But as the period went on the Mils continued to have their fair share of better chances and they would finally break through as Dalton Menke finished off his 4th of the season to even things up at 1-1 after 40 minutes.

In the 3rd it was all Klippers as they sent 16 shots the way of the Mils net minder Troy Trombley but he was outstanding to keep it deadlocked at 1-1 going into the overtime.

The Klippers wouldn't take long to end it in the overtime period when Shaun MacPhearson would end off a nice passing play for his 6th of the season to get the extra point. 

Evan Weninger stopped 25 shots for the win, while Troy Trombley made 30 saves in the losing cause. 

Mils will return to action Friday when they host the Battlefords North Stars at 7:30 HCUC. 

In the MJHL, 

Graham Hunt was outstanding stopping 47 shots for the shutout to lead the Swan Valley Stampeders past the OCN Blizzard 4-0. 

Carter Johnson led the way with 1G 2A, while Nick Kobelka, Tristin Mullin, and BJ Avery also scored for the SV Stampeders. 

Stamps return to action Sunday when they visit Neepawa on GX94.
