Langan gets shootout winner as Stamps shade past Wolverines

The Swan Valley Stampeders got their 14th victory of the season on Wednesday night when they slipped by the Wayway Wolverines 5-4 in the shootout.

The Stamps would get off to a pretty quick start as just 5:11 into the 1st period, Nick Kobelka seeing eye wrister would make it to the back of the net for his 12th goal of the season to give Swan an early 1-0 lead. But before the period could wrap up George Spilchal would walk off the half wall and go top shelf over Lasse Petersen on the power play to tie things up at 1-1 with Stamps leading in the shot department after 1, 20-7.

In the 2nd, the tides would turn and it would be all Wolverines as they would out shoot the Stamps overall in the middle frame 20-9. Offensively in the 2nd, Cody Ellingson would regain the home teams 1 goal lead with his 3rd of the year to make it 2-1 Swan Valley. But once again the Wolverines would get the equalizer as Morgan Greve with a nice wrister would also top shelf for his 1st MJHL goal, and 1st goal as a Wolverines to make it a 2-2 game. Wayway would get their first lead of the night with just 33 seconds remaining when Robert Briem's one timer would slip through Petersen for his team leading 14th goal of the season to give the Wolverines their first lead at 3-2 after 40 minutes.

The Stamps this time would be the club that would be able to get the equalizer on a puck that was misplaced by goalie Mitch Wiebe, reigning MJHL Player of the Week Carter Johnson would capitalize on it to make it 3-3. The two teams would then late, exchange powerplay goal of the sticks of Dylan Gedjos (Wayway) & Braydon MacDonald (Swan) to tie things up at 4-4 headed to overtime which would solve nothing.

In the shootout, Stamps forwards Tristin Langan (pictured above) and Carter Johnson would be the only ones to score in the shootout to give the Stamps a 5-4 shootout victory.

Lasse Petersen stopped 35 Wolverines shot for his 2nd win of the season while Mitch Wiebe made 40 saves in a losing cause.

These two teams will go right back at it against one another on Saturday night at 7:30 from the Centennial Arena in Swan River.

Over in the SJHL,

The Melville Millionaires had their 2 game win streak snapped as they dropped a 5-2 decision to the visiting Weyburn Red Wings.

Landon Farrell & Dalton Menke had the lone goals for the Mils, while Troy Trombley made 34 saves in the loss.

The Mils now just have a 5 point lead on the Wings for 1st place in the Viterra Division, with Weyburn having 2 games in hand.

The Mils will play their final game before the Christmas break on Tuesday night when they host the Nipawin Hawks at the HCUC at 7:30.
