Coda Gordon, Aryton Nikkel, Glenn Gawdin, and Colby Cave all added goals. Gordon extended his WHL leading point streak to 15 games with a goal and an assist and a plus-four rating.
The Broncos had lost their first two games against Brandon this season and Bow said there was some added motivation tonight.
“Yeah for sure, especially last game when they just beat us up really badly and they were rubbing it in our face the entire game. We knew we had to come out and do the same thing to them in our barn,” said Bow.
Friday, the Broncos allowed three first period goals and were never able to recover in a 6-2 loss to the host Prince Albert Raiders.
The Raiders jumped out to an early lead on goals 3:15 apart from Jayden Hart. He scored on the powerplay at the 3:10 mark and then added his 10th of the season at the 6:25 mark of the first period. Craig Leverton scored the eventual game-winning goal with 1:27 left in the opening period during his four- point night.
Head Coach and General Manager Mark Lamb said it was disappointing to not be able to carry the momentum into Prince Albert.
“We played a pretty good game in Prince Albert. Our start, we were flat at the start of the game and you don’t have to be flat for very many shifts, you can be if they don’t score, but if they score and you get behind then it is tough.
“The last two periods we did a lot of good things. We had a lot of scoring chances but we were just behind and couldn’t catch up.”
The Broncos got second-period goals from Jake DeBrusk and Andreas Schumacher, while Reid Gardiner counted for the Raiders for a 4-2 Raiders’ lead after two periods.
The Raiders sealed the win with empty net goals from Gardiner and Hart in the third period.
Bow allowed four goals in 33:09 of work to drop to 11-7-0-4 for the Broncos. Travis Child came on in relief and did not allow a goal in 25:12 of work. Rylan Parenteau made 44 saves on 46 shots to improve to 44-0-0.
The Broncos finished one-for-five on the powerplay on DeBrusk’s goal, while Hart scored on the powerplay for the Raiders on their only man-advantage of the contest.
Saturday, a usually stingy Broncos team escaped Saskatoon with an 8-7 overtime win over the Blades.
“I don’t think anybody can explain it but those games happen a few times. I have never quite seen a game like that,” said Lamb.
Gordon scored 2:56 into overtime in a game that saw the Broncos squander numerous multiple-goal leads. They led 3-0 only 10:38 into regulation and held 3-2 and 5-3 period leads before the Blades scored four third-period goals to force overtime, including Nikita Soshnin’s first goal of the season to tie the game 7-7 with 1:56 left in regulation.
The Broncos were led offensively by a hat trick from defenseman Brett Lernout and four-point outings from Gawdin and Schumacher. Schumacher finished with two goals and two assists and Gawdin had a goal and three assists.
