Prince Albert, SK — The Moose Jaw Warriors went to work for a hard fought road win in Prince Albert on Saturday night.

The Warriors scored two goals in the second period and skated to a 2-1 win over the Raiders at the Art Hauser Centre.

“It was a great road game for us, we did a pretty good job managing pucks and just trying to play a boring game, but capitalize on some of our chances and do a good job defensively and we did a pretty good job of that,” Warriors assistant coach Curtis Pereverzoff said.

Jackson Unger made 25 saves in the win as the Warriors earned their third straight win.

“He was good for us tonight,” Pereverzoff said. “He was composed back there.”

It was also the 20th win of the season for Moose Jaw, who sit at 20-14-0-2 and fourth in the Eastern Conference.

“Every time we come into this building, the crowd they’re right on top of you, it’s loud, physical game, quick game and I thought the guys did a really good job of managing emotions and keeping it simple,” Pereverzoff said.

Prince Albert opened the scoring late in a back-and-forth opening period when Easton Kovacs point shot found its way through traffic with 47 seconds left in the frame.

The Warriors would up the pressure in the second period and get rewarded when Pavel McKenzie snapped home his eight of the season 5:09 into the period.

With 6:50 left in the second, Brayden Schuurman wired home his 10th of the season. That would be the eventual game-winner, giving Schuurman three straight game-winning goals.

“In the back half of the season, we want to see all our lines out there and making sure they’re contributing where they can and having an imprint on the game and we got that,” Pereverzoff said.

Prince Albert outshot the Warriors, 26-25, on the night, while the Raiders had the only power play of the game late in the third period, which Moose Jaw killed off.

The Warriors will get Sunday off before opening 2024 in Regina against the Pats on New Year’s Day Monday.
