Stampeders Down The Steelers, Jump Into Fourth Place

The Stampeders flipped the script tonight, picking up a massive two points on home ice against the Selkirk Steelers.

Leyson Coleman and Nathan Carl lead the way tonight with 1G and 1A each, and Mikael Foucher stopped 25/26 backstopping his team to victory.

Tonight’s contest was another tight checking, low scoring affair as the Stamps came away with a hard fought 3-1 win in front of an electric Swan River crowd.

Ryan Ostermann would open the scoring this afternoon for the Selkirk Steelers, grabbing a loose puck and beating a sprawled out Mikael Foucher just over three minutes into the game.

Nathan Carl would respond for the Stampeders just over five minutes into the middle frame. He received a pass from Luke Beerman and snapped home his ninth of the year.

Swan would grab their first lead of the game 5:53 into the third period as Mattias Dal Monte would fire one in from the point.  The Stampeders would find the insurance marker over nine minutes later. Leyson Coleman stuffed home a loose puck for his fifth of the year at 13:29, and Swan skated to a 3-1 win over the Steelers Sunday night in Swan River.
