The Yorkton Terriers were able to stave off elimination last night (Wed) after 3-2 victory over the Estevan Bruins in Game 4.
The Terriers for the 2nd straight night would strike first as Jared Legien would snipe home his 3rd of the series to give them a 1-0 lead just 4:43 into the opening period. Jason Miller though would reply 25 seconds later as he would one-time home his 5th of the playoffs to make it 1-1 after 1 period.
The score would stay even until Carson Welke would walk out from the right side corner and jam it by Nathan Alalouf for his 1st to give the home-side a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes with the shots favoring the Bruins 21-18.
In the 3rd, just 4:22 in the Bruins would even it up at 2-2 as Levi Barnstable would pick up a loose puck and slip it by a sprawled out Nathan Hargrave for his 1st of the series. The Terriers would once again respond and it would be Jordan Ross (pictured above) netting the eventual game winner as he would take nice pass across from Dexter Robinson on the 2 on 1 rush and the Kronau product would get his 1st of the playoffs to help keep his team alive with the big home ice win.
20 year old Nathan Hargrave would get his 1st playoff win in a Terrier uniform making 27 saves on 29 shots while Bruin netminder had his playoff record drop to 3-1 as they turned aside 24 shots in the losing cause.
The win was also the first playoff victory for the Terriers since the RBC Cup Final that they won back in May of 2014.
The two teams will now play a game number 5 tomorrow night (Friday) from Affinity Place in Estevan. GX94 will broadcast the game with Yorkton Dodge Junior Hockey, pregame 7:20 pxp at 7:30.
